Each site is reporting different prices. I have no idea as to which ones to believe. Any legitimate sources?

[Edit] Official Release from Astonmartin.com. Still no official prices.

Aston Martin Launches in India
Gaydon, 15 April 2011: Aston Martin has officially opened the doors to its first dealership in India today, bringing the British marque's luxury sports cars to the city of Mumbai.

This important move in the luxury manufacturer’s expansion plans further strengthens the company’s representation in this growing region, bringing the Aston Martin brand to India for the first time.

Aston Martin will commence its presence in India with a new dedicated facility in Mumbai in partnership with Performance Cars (a division of Infinity Cars Pvt. Ltd.), who has enjoyed a strong reputation in the Indian luxury car market for several years.

Aston Martin’s Chief Commercial Officer, Michael van der Sande said, “India represents a new opportunity for us and as part of our programme of growing the reach of the global Aston Martin dealership network; this expansion brings our brand to a different audience in a new market.

“Our decision to bring the Aston Martin brand to India is driven by a strong level of interest and enthusiasm from potential customers in an emerging luxury market. We have taken our time to find the right advocates for Aston Martin and I am confident that we have selected strong partners with whom we look forward to starting a successful relationship.”

Performance Cars, Managing Director, Mr. Lalit Choudary added, “Partnering Aston Martin offers us an unique opportunity to bring one of the world's iconic brands to one of the most discerning and fast growing markets. We are confident about the brand's success in India given the range of models, the comfortable ride quality the cars offer on our roads and the exclusivity they accord.”

The Aston Martin dealership in Mumbai is located at Kemp's Corner at the junction of the ultra premium Peddar and Altamount Roads and will offer customers a premium boutique environment wherein they can specify the cars to their exacting needs. The after-sales facility in nearby Worli is a first of its kind, air conditioned workshop in the high luxury segment. The showroom and after-sales facilities have been specially designed to follow the international design elements that have timelessly identified the elegance of the Aston Martin brand worldwide.

Aston Martin customers and enthusiasts will be able to view and test-drive selected models from the entire range of V8 Vantage Coupe and Roadster, V12 Vantage, DB9 Coupe and Volante, DBS Coupe, and Volante and the four-door sports car; Rapide. These models will also be joined by the recently launched V8 Vantage S and the new Virage.
The opening of the Aston Martin Mumbai showroom strengthens the company’s global dealership network to a total of 134 dealers in 42 countries. As part of the company’s ongoing expansion plans Aston Martin has recently entered into Brazil, Chile, Croatia, Czech Republic, Greece, Taiwan and Turkey whilst seeking continued growth in new markets as well as emerging markets including China and the Middle East.

Cool. In that case you could find out if the One-77 is really retailing for THAT much. Seems way over the top to me.

Post re: ASTON MARTIN: Officially launched in India on 15th April, 2011

Not surprised at the cost of the One-77. The latest entrant into the ever growing list of Hyper Car launches in our Country. From what I heard it retail's in the UK for about 1.2 Million for what is today's fastest naturally aspirated car in the world and is also dubbed to be the costliest car at the moment.

With a 7.3ltr V12 producing around 760ps and a 750 newton meter of torque, a top speed of around 350kmph, this is going to be in the same territory as that of the Veyron and Agera which were launched here recently.

Putting aside practicality issues, I just can't wait to see this Hyper Car on our roads !
