The open-top luxury super sports car is priced at Rs.4.78 crore (ex-showroom Delhi)

Lamborghini has introduced its open-top luxury super sports car, Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 Roadster, in the Indian market to cater to the super-rich.

The car is priced at Rs.4,77,50,000 (ex-showroom Delhi). It will go on sale from mid-2013 at Lamborghini dealers nationwide, Lamborghini India said.

“The Roadster is the most exciting super car that embodies performance, design, technology and engineering excellence which has captivated the imagination of auto enthusiasts across the world. The Aventador Roadster will not only wow Lamborghini fans with its innovations, but will also further develop our presence in the emerging Indian super-luxury sports car segment,” Andrea Baldi, Sales Manager, Southeast Asia & Pacific said, while launching the super car.

“India is slowly accepting the super cars as a mode to realise aspirations and we are hopeful of the success we can achieve here. We believe that our portfolio of legendary super cars has what it takes to satisfy the discerning Indian market,” he added.

“The luxury car market in India has seen a fair amount of growth in the last few years, and continues to grow at a significant rate each year. The emphasis has shifted from pure price consideration to design, quality and pleasure,” said Pavan Shetty, Head of Operations, Lamborghini India. The car can immediately be recognised by the unique profile of its upper area, which extends along newly-designed geometric lines from the removable roof to the engine hood.

It accelerates from 0 to 100 km per hour in just three seconds flat and has a maximum speed of some 350 km per hour.

In 2012, Lamborghini India maintained growth momentum with a 21 per cent increase in sales.
