--FILE--Visitors look at Lamborghini sports cars during the 9th China (Guangzhou) International Automobile Exhibition, known as Auto Guangzhou 2011, in Guangzhou city, south Chinas Guangdong province, 22 November 2011. After several years of massive growth that saw China become a critical new market for ultra-luxury automakers like Bentley, Aston Martin, Bugatti and Ferrari, this week Lamborghini warned that slowing growth in the broader Chinese economy may crimp demand for luxury supercars in 2012. Coming off a year in which Lamborghini sales in China surged nearly 70 percent, Christian Mastro, Lamborghinis Asia Pacific general manager, said in a recent interview, If you look at the economy right now, there may be some uncertainty to make people wait a little. Lamborghini aims to boost deliveries in China by 20 percent to 30 percent, less than half the pace of last year, as the sportscar maker can not produce enough Aventadors to meet the 18-month waiting list, Mastro said.
