Lamborghini's Rs 1.5 cr car in India soon

December 26, 2005 10:13 IST
Italian luxury sports car maker Lamborghini is all set to drive its best-selling model Gallardo into India soon.

"The plan is to bring the Lamborghini Gallardo within the first quarter of next year," Exclusive Motors manager (sales) Rahul Grover said. Exclusive Motors is Lamborghini's distributor in India.

While the exact pricing would be known only next month, he said the Lamborghini Gallardo could be tagged at anywhere between Rs 1 crore and Rs 1.5 crore.

The Gallardo will be the latest in a series of crore-plus cars to hit Indian roads after the likes of the Maybach, the Rolls Royce Phantom and the Bentley Arnage.

Grover said the target was to sell about 2-3 Gallardos in the next year. Automobili Lamborghini Holding Spa, a part of Volkswagen's Audi group, rolled out the 3,000th Gallardo earlier this month.

It remains to be seen how the Gallardo, which competes with the likes of Ferrari's F30 and Porsche's 911 Turbo, fares in India.

Lamborghini had said it was more concerned with the infrastructure in India than the purchasing capability of its potential customers.
