Lamborghini, the Italian super sports car maker, will soon introduce its upcoming SUV Urus in India and the company expects the country to be one of its top 15 global markets in five years after its launch. But before that, Lamborghini has launched the Huracan special edition Avio in India and has given it a price tag of Rs Rs 3.71 crore (ex-showroom). With this, the company expects a double digit growth in the country this year.
“The Indian market is very small for us right now, at about 30 units a year now. But we know strong potential of this market, specially how the demand for SUVs has been growing,” Automobili Lamborghini General Manager Asia Pacific Andrea Baldini said.
“In India we can expect our sales to increase three or four times. I wouldn’t be surprised if India becomes among the top 15 global markets for Lamborghini in 5 years,” Baldini said.
Lamborghini has plans to begin selling the production version of its concept SUV Lamborghini Urus from 2018 globally.
“Earlier, the customers were 2nd or 3rd generation businessmen who are conservative, but now a lot of young entrepreneurs, who are not shy of expressing themselves, are coming in,” he said.
“This is the first time we have brought a Special Edition car to India to showcase to our customers.” Only 250 units of the Huracan Avio are made globally. We are opening a window of five days for our Indian customers to order the Huracan Avio,” Lamborghini India Head Sharad Agarwal said.
The Huracan Avio comes with a 5.1-litre engine capable of producing 610 horse power and has a top speed of 325 km per hour.
