Ferrari re-enters India; Introduces California T
After a turbulent first innings in India, the legendary Italian car maker Ferrari has made a comeback in India. Armed with a line-up of 5 vehicles and a new distributor, the Italian marquee has set up shop in Delhi and Mumbai with Selects Cars and Navnit Motors respectively. Ferrari announced its official re-entry into India via press conferences held in Delhi and Mumbai where they also showcased the cheapest and likely to be the most popular model of their line-up, the California T. During their last stint in India, Ferrari customers were left with a very sour taste in their mouth due to the shoddy services provided by the previous distributor. This time around, the company seems to have done their homework better and are determined to win back the customers confidence and increase their reach to new potential customers as well.
