MILAN, Italy — Lamborghini reports that sales of its supercars rose 30% in 2012 to 2083. Despite its performance it remained shy of pre-crisis highs.

The Italian automaker, owned by Volkswagen, reports that deliveries were up by half in its top US market and up by 34% in Europe despite the region's financial crisis.

WHAT FINANCIAL CRISIS?

Revenues for 2012 were up 46% to R5.6-billion.

The automaker, based in Sant'Agata Bolognese, sold a record 2430 cars in 2008 before the global economic crisis devastated the luxury market.

The brand's 2012 sales comprised of 922 Aventador LP 700-4 and 1161 Gallardos.

Lamborghini previewed the one-off Lamborghini Veneno at the 2013 Geneva International Motor Show in March to mark its 50th anniversary.
