Ferrari India has commenced bookings for its entire lineup of supercars save for the super exclusive LaFerrari. The lineup includes California T, 488 GTB, 458 Spider, 458 Speciale, FF, and F12 Berlinetta.
The front-engined Ferrari California T is the most affordable prancing horse one can buy in India at INR 3.30 crores but mind you, optional accessories can inflate it significantly. Also on sale are the exclusive 458 Speciale, flagship F12 and the new turbocharged 488 GTB.
It’s is reported that Ferrari has allocated less than 20 cars for India this year. Since the famed Italian supercar marque is coming back to the country after a long sabbatical, the initial demand itself is expected to clear out 2015’s inventory.
In its previous stint, Ferrari had appointed Shreyans Group as its official importer and distributor for India. The Group had earned a bad reputation among customers and eventually the Fiat-owned automaker was forced to dissolve its partnership and withdraw from the market temporarily.
Official presence comes as a great relief for both new and existing Ferrari customers. As of now, there are two outlets in the country. Mumbai outlet is owned by Navnit Motors while the new Delhi showroom is run by Select Cars. While deliveries are expected to start in July, the outlets are reported to go operational only in October.
Ferrari’s sister brand Maserati which too was under Shreyans Group’s distributorship in India is also likely to set up its official presence in the future. Ferrari’s India operations would go a long way in instilling confidence in the brand’s aftersales service.
