Ever since Land Rover and Jaguar stepped into India, major global automakers whether German, Italian, British or French have shown interest in introducing their quality products in our market. Considering the British stable we should not forget one of the most technically advanced brands, Aston Martin which finally has sensed the potential of the Indian Automobile market.
Wasting no time, now the brand has made immediate plans of driving into India and the same is scheduled for the coming 15th April. Honestly speaking we have seen some Aston Martins parked beside the official showroom of Rolls Royce at Shangri La hotel in Delhi and this certainly hints towards this very launch which is yet to take place.
For Delhi Deutsche Motoren at Mathura Road has been appointed as the official dealer while Infinity Group for Mumbai. Most interesting part is that though the launch is yet to take place, 30 Indians have already shown their interest in the products from this British major.
Coming to the brand’s expected line-up could comprise of Aston Martin Rapide, Aston Martin DBS, Aston Martin DB9 and Aston Martin V8 Vantage.
