Lamborghini coming to the Philippines

By Vernon B. Sarne
 

Lamborghini Aventador

The industry is now abuzz with talk of Lamborghini's arrival in the Philippines in the second half of this year. Sources say the Italian supercar brand is coming here courtesy of PGA Cars, which also distributes Porsche and Audi. And according to these sources, the Lamborghini showroom will be located at the facility that PGA Cars has been constructing at the Bonifacio High Street complex in Bonifacio Global City--which we initially thought to be reserved for Volkswagen.

If this pushes through, PGA Cars will be a luxury multibrand distributor, much like the group of Wellington Soong, which sells and markets Jaguar, Land Rover, Maserati and pretty soon Ferrari. Also, BGC will now be home to several high-end automotive brands, with Lamborghini joining Lexus, Mercedes-Benz and Mini. A joint Ferrari/Maserati showroom is also expected to open shop in the area either by the end of this year or early in 2012. Other car brands that have showrooms in BGC are Ford, Honda, Kia and Hyundai.

So, are you excited to see the new Lamborghini Aventador in the metal?

    I just saw a Lamboghini Murcielago on EDSA but was carried by a truck. And it has a plate number. :D

    it's sells well through gray market.. that is why they are coming... I've seen them every sunday moring...
  • RS500 Apr 29 2011 @ 10:05pm
    They will not anymore offer any Murcielago variant because it was already replaced by the Aventador. Probably they'll sell us Gallardo, Gallardo Spyder, and Aventador.

    It's not to be negative, but how come so many luxury sports car brands are coming to our humbled shores???

    Makes sense, Volkswagen group owns Porsche Audi and Lamborghini....
  • 997 GT2RS May 01 2011 @ 03:52pm
    Perhaps we should start a name and shame focused on politicians owning expensive cars which were obviously bought thru I'll gotten wealth..
  • JCM May 01 2011 @ 07:23pm
    5 or less units will be sold yearly. =(
  • hajabah May 01 2011 @ 08:01pm
    I was looking forward to VW. :( hahaha! whaddabout Fiat and Alfa?
  • mielricci0210 May 01 2011 @ 11:22pm
    to be fair, i think there are a lot of Filipinos who can also afford to buy one of these super cars even without being a "crook"
  • mielricci0210 May 01 2011 @ 11:32pm
    @warak1422 car industry is a constant development process and Korean cars are now keeping up with the western car technology. No wonder in years to come Chinese cars will meet western standards if not surpass it.
  • rayray May 02 2011 @ 06:22am
    What's the purpose? The only person who could afford it is Manny Pacquaio.
    • Jerricson May 02 2011 @ 02:51pm

    @rayray, are you sure??? What about tycoons like Henry Sy, Dr. Lucio Tan, Gokongwei, Ayala; those guys could also afford to buy Lamborghini/s...
