Sentencing Delayed for O/C/ Lamborghini Dealer

A sentencing for former Lamborghini dealer Vik Keuylian that was scheduled for today has been postponed until March, according to a U.S. Attorney’s Office spokesman and Keuylian’s defense attorney.

Keuylian, who owned Lamborghini dealerships in Santa Ana and Calabasas, pleaded guilty in May to a wire-fraud scheme in which he bilked $12 million from Volkswagen Credit Inc., the finance company that fronted him the money to sell the cars.

“There was a stipulation filed between us and the defense filed back in July,” said Thom Mrozek, public affairs officer with the U.S. Attorney’s Office. “It just got delayed, and that’s a pretty common occurrence.”

Keuylian’s new sentencing date is March 29, 2010. He faces up to 30 years in prison, plus a $1 million fine.

Keuylian, left, of Laguna Hills, is currently free on bail. His attorney, Craig Wilke, declined to comment on what his client is currently doing, the reason for the delay, or what is happening to the defunct Lamborghini dealerships.

At an Orange County gathering of Lamborghini enthusiasts two weeks ago, Pietro Frigerio, Chief Operating Officer of Automobili Lamborghini America LLC, said the company is “doing everything possible to bring (an O.C. Lamborghini dealership) back,” but cited “interesting and challenging legal proceedings” regarding Keuylian’s case.
