With global stock markets surging, it's no small surprise that supercar maker Lamborghini is fresh off another strong year of sales.

Lamborghini said this week that worldwide sales rose a solid 10% in 2017, marking the seventh straight year of gains. Europe was the hottest market for Lambo, notching a sales gain of 18%. Asia and America saw sales increases of 9% and 4%, respectively.

"It's a great moment [for us]," Lamborghini chairman and CEO Stefano Domenicali told TheStreet when asked how the stock market is helping lift supercar sales.

It may be a great time for Lamborghini right now, but that doesn't mean it will be plowing its profits into developing a driverless car. "I don't see a driverless Lamborghini happening," Domenicali said, adding that Lamborghini is instead investing in making its cars more intuitive for its fearless drivers. "The experience of driving a Lamborghini is a must for its customer base."

Domenicali did confirm that Lamborghini's next step is a hybrid, a necessary move before unleashing a fully electric model.

As for a brewing rivaling with electric car maker Tesla (TSLA) , which is set to unleash a new $200,000 Roadster in the not too distant future.

"In life, you don't underestimate anyone," said Domenicali.
