“While celebrating these figures we must underline the extraordinariness of the situation in which we find ourselves right now, from both a human and corporate perspective, due to the worldwide spread of Coronavirus.
Lamborghini's chairman also expressed his gratitude to individuals working in the security, health, service, and medical institutions for their untiring contributions in managing the crisis today.
"I would like to thank all the people - especially those in the services, medical and health sectors, institutions and the security forces - who are contributing to the management of this crisis in a remarkable way."
He also added how the crisis has changed how our interpersonal relationships have changed across the world, and everyone should be ready to react to these rapidly changing new circumstances in a "rational and effective way".
