Default Lamborghini now available officially in India. Launch in Delhi.

Following Ferrari, Porsche and various other high end marques, Lamborghini officially launches the Gallardo and Murcielago in India. The Gallardo convertible is priced at Rs 1.65 crore, Gallardo Spyder at Rs 1.8 crore and Murcielago at Rs 3 crore.

Responsible for sales is Exclusive Motors in Delhi. I just hope that it is better than Ferraris pathetic Indian "authorised" dealership. Their target is 10 cars a year.

i hope they meet their target of 10 cars. that means we get to see more lambos. yes dippy the gallardo coupe is 1.65 and the spyder is 1.8 crores
a little ot but do the lambos have some kind of adjustable suspension that you can raise when you come to a speed breaker.

I drove a 580bhp Murcielago around Thruxton circuit last year, but this "new" Murcielago is 60bhp up on that car! Wow! To put that in its proper perspective, they "upped" the power by more than many low-end road cars can produce!!!
