Default Rumour: McLaren to enter India in 2018

As part of its global expansion plans, McLaren could enter the Indian market in 2018. According to a media report, the British supercar brand could soon open its first dealership in India with an initial target to sell 10 cars annually. By 2022, the company aims to hit an annual sales number of 5000 units globally.

McLaren currently has 79 sales and service outlets spread across the world. This number is set to rise as it plans to enter Brazil and Russia as well.

McLaren's lineup consists of the Sports Series - 540C, 570GT, 570S Coupe and 570S Spider, followed by the Super Series which includes the latest 720S (which replaces the 650S) and the Ultimate Series which comprises of hypercars like the P1. The entry-level 540C is expected to be priced around Rs. 2 crore (ex-showroom) and is likely to be the more popular choice among Indians. It will be pitted against the likes of the Porsche 911 Turbo, the Mercedes-AMG GT and the Aston Martin V8 Vantage.

Meanwhile, Lamborghini is among the most sought after supercar brand in India. Reports suggest that the company sold 30 units in 2016 out of a total of 70-odd supercars sold that year.

Though i hope they come here, but really doubt they are going to. This rumour is from more than a year and not sure where Autocar has got this news again. Really hope they launch their cars here.

From what I have been told from rather reliable sources, this news is not true.

Just to add on to this, ranjitsundaramurthy, who is a serial supercar owner and a McLaren customer himself just confirmed with the factory and they say that they do not have any plans of coming to India next year. Considering the fact that he knows the McLaren higher-ups really well, I don't think there must be even an ounce of doubt on the credibility here.
Don't know where does Autocar India come up with such news from lol.
