Ferrari is one of those brands that enjoys worldwide appreciation and recognition. Ferrari, come to think of it, might even trounce local brands when it comes to fame and its popularity among the masses (ah, the irony). With such a strong brand equity, the Modena-based company has finally returned to India. Ferrari faced some issues before such as poor after-sales service and delayed delivery. However, with its return, Ferrari has now chosen two private dealers in Delhi and Mumbai to cater to its well-heeled customers.
Delectable stallions in red is a sight to behold!
Navnit Motors will take responsibility of operations and sales for Ferrari in Mumbai. Meanwhile, Select Cars Pvt. Ltd. will manage the same in Delhi. Given the fact that the supercar maker has already appointed the dealers, sales of Stallion should commence soon.
Expect to see more of these on our roads soon. The 458 Spider and 458 Speciale will be sold.
The California T Convertible is the ‘cheapest’ Ferrari. You can buy a big house for the same $.
The Ferrari California T Convertible might be the most affordable Stallion, but it isn’t a slouch. Its 3.9-litre twin-turbo V8 with direct-injection produces 560 PS and 755 Nm (7th gear) of torque. Power is sent to the rear wheels, channeled through a dual-clutch 7-speed F1-type gearbox. This means that the California will rocket to 100 km/h in just 3.6 secs and go on to touch 315 km/h – not too sloppy for an entry-level Ferrari.
The 488 GTB Coupe will be the second most affordable Ferrari in India.
According to reports, almost all of the Ferrari 488 GTBs bound for our shores have been spoken for. Even the entry-level Ferrari has garnered a lot of interest from keen clients. The following are the ex-showroom (Mumbai) prices:
- Ferrari California T Convertible – INR 3.30 Crore
- Ferrari 488 GTB Coupe – INR 3.84 Crore
- Ferrari 458 Spider – INR 4.07 Crore
- Ferrari 458 Speciale – INR 4.25 Crore
- Ferrari F12 Berlinetta – INR 4.72 Crore
The F12 Berlinetta will be the most expensive offering from Ferrari in India.
So, do you think you have several crores of Rupees lying around? If yes, buy yourself one of these and you will make India an even better place to live in. With Lamborghini already making itself at home, Ferrari will have some catching up to do. That said, we have no qualms that this marque will do that. Anyway, tell us what you think about Ferrari and its new entrance into our market? Also, which is your favourite Stallion?
