The Italian automaker Lamborghini has opened its 1st showroom in Mumbai and has appointed Autohangar as its dealer for boosting its presence in India. Autohangar is also one of the biggest dealers of Mercedes Benz in India and is situated in Prabhadevi. Till now, the Italian automobile manufacturer has marketed its vehicle in the country through Exclusive Motors, a Delhi based sole distributor that will be continuing to serve customers in the northern part of India. The dealer will be looking after West India. The automaker plans to setup its own NSC (National Sales Company) in the country, particularly since Volkswagen Group, its parent founded a strong presence in the country.
Porsche that was acquired in 2010 by Volkswagen Group will also be having its National Sales Company under VW umbrella in India. The company has given a special allocation to the country of 8 to 10 Aventador models and there is already a queue of Indian shoppers who are keen to get behind the wheel of this supercar that generates earth-shaking 700 horsepower. It is likely to be introduced to India within the next three years and the automaker expects to market just 40-50 cars.
