Mumbai: Super sports car maker Lamborghini, which today rolled out the Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 Roadster, said it expects a higher growth for its super luxury cars in the domestic market.
The Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 Roadster is priced at Rs 4.77 crore, ex-showroom Delhi.
"Last year we achieved 21 per cent growth here. This year, we expect a higher growth," Automobili Lamborghini sales manager for Southeast Asia & Pacific, Andrea Baldi, told reporters here without disclosing a target.
Lamborghini is a company of the German auto major Volkswagen Group. The new Roadster will go on sale from mid-2013 at its two dealers, he added.
Stating that the domestic market has good potential for the super luxury cars, Baldi said, "This market will see steady and continuous growth in the years to come."
India will grow faster than some of the current markets in the next five years, he said.
On the new car, Baldi said the Aventador Roadster is the most exciting supercar that embodies performance, design, technology and engineering excellence. I am sure it will further develop our presence in this market."
The super luxury car maker had entered the country in 2005 and today it operates two outlets-- one each in Delhi and Mumbai.
"We are considering other cities also, mainly Chennai and Bangalore. But there are some challenges like finding the right dealer and infrastructure," he said.
Stating that India is slowly accepting the super cars as a means to realise aspirations, he said, "We are hopeful of the success we can achieve here."
