Replacement for the Gallardo, the Lamborghini Huracan LP610-4 was launched in India yesterday at a price of Rs 3.43 crore (ex-showroom, Delhi). The Italian car maker expects their new super sports car to be well received in India and will start delivering cars starting next month. It is rather surprising that a niche and luxury product like the Huracan will be delivered in such a short time when buyers for cars like the Maruti Celerio have to wait for a year to get behind the wheels of the little hatchback. Currently, Lamborghini manages its sales through two exclusive dealerships, one each in Delhi and Mumbai and plans to setup a new outlet in Bangalore by the end of this year.

Speaking about the Huracan launch in India, Automobili Lamborghini’s Head of South East Asia Sebastian Henry said, “Today, we are very proud to officially launch the new Lamborghini Huracan LP 610-4 here in India. Automobili Lamborghini continues to set new benchmarks in the luxury super sports car industry and we expect the Huracan to be well received in this country.”
When asked about the company’s sales target for the current year, Henry said no target has been set for this year, but 2015 is expected to be a better year in terms of growth. “This year is the year of transition and cannot be compared, but next year we will have a full year. So 2015 will be interesting to compare with,” he said.
Lamborghini India’s Head of Operations Pavan Shetty said. “The Huracan is expected to become a legend in the future. Since its global launch at the Geneva Motor Show, customer response has been very positive. Deliveries of these units are scheduled to begin in October 2014.”
