Currently, Lamborghini has showrooms in three cities across India – Delhi, Mumbai, and Bengaluru. While the Italian hasn’t revealed any number, the Mumbai dealer is said to have been allotted about 10-12 units of the Urus for 2018 and all of them have been sold out. Having said that you can still book the new Lamborghini Urus today, but, as mentioned earlier, you will get the delivery only in 2019.
Commenting on the response that the company has received for the Urus in India and the sold-out cars, Sharad Agarwal, Head of Lamborghini India said, “Since its global launch on 4th of December at Sant’Agata Bolognese in 2017, the response has been very phenomenal for the Urus.

We have got a phenomenal response in India, we are almost sold out of what has been allocated for 2018 and now are accepting orders for early 2019 deliveries.”
