Back in March 2011, Ferrari appointed Shreyans Group as their official importer and distributor in India. But, in April this year, this partnership agreement was brought to an end due to growing number of Ferrari owners in India expressing their concern over substandard after sales service.
This time around, Ferrari plans to have a solid base. As per people who have knowledge over the development, the Italian marquee plans to keep the management of Ferrari in India under the watchful eyes of their team in Dubai. Ferrari first plans to open dealerships in Bombay and Delhi.

In Mumbai, Ferrari has been in talks with Navnit Motors, who have been handling brands like Rolls Royce, BMW and Land Rover. While in Delhi, they are in talks with Yadur Kapur who takes care of Aston Martin, Rolls Royce and Lamborghini.
