The first showroom of Lamborghini is based in Delhi, in association with Exclusive Motors, which witnessed the introduction of supercar maker’s latest offering Aventador.

For the past few years, Indian auto market has witnessed the launch of many supercars such as Ferrari, Aston Martin, Maserati and Lamborghini with the rise in the demand for super cars in India. Although the demand for super cars have seen increase in recent years in India, the sales of low slung sportscars or supercars has remained restricted for some time now due to limited infrastructural development that could provide drivable road to them. Thus, the supercar maker Lamborghini is looking forward to add an SUV to its portfolio that would fit well in the Indian auto market and also grab the attention of the potential customers.
Recently introduced upcoming SUV Urus by Lamborghini is expected to make its debut in India in the near future. The brand new SUV Urus concept has already been unveiled at the 2012 Beijing Auto Show. During the showroom opening, Mr. Winkelmann said that the company expects the Urus to do well in the Indian automotive market as soon as it goes under production at Sant’Agata Bolobnese in Italy.
Currently, the supercar maker Lamborghini sells its all new Aventador and the Gallardo in India. The new Aventador of the company boasts a 6.5-litre V-12 engine and comes for Rs. 4 crore, while the Gallardo is powered by a 5.2-litre V-10 engine and is priced above Rs. 2 crore (all prices are ex-showroom prices).
