With the launch of new Aventador, seen at the recent Geneva Motor Show, Lamborghini has already received upto 11 prebookings for these 700 bhp V12 sportscar in India, two slated for Mumbai. The new showroom will accommodate entire lineup of Lamborghini sportscars and will also house exclusive merchandise and accessories.
Mr Stephen Winkelmann, CEO and President, Lamborghini, said, “Lamborghini has always eyed the Indian market with a lot of interest. The past year saw the market potential and realised being in one centre alone will not be enough. Therefore we chose the financial capital as our second destination.”
Speaking about their future in India, Mr Winkelmann said, “We plan to sell around 50 cars by 2015. We have identified three locations including, Chennai, Bangalore and Hyderabad. But we will first study the demand in these markets.”
Lamborghini has also opened a new showroom in Moscow, Russia together with Burevestnik Group, a luxury auto and yacht company. To mark this great event, Burevestnik Group held an event at Collector gallery of Moscow where Lamborghini LP700-4 Aventador was presented along with Lamborghini accessories.
