Zero Bugatti Veyrons sold in India

Zero Bugatti Veyrons sold in India

Super rich Indians are known to spend millions to buy a car that not only gives them exclusivity but also the thrill of speed, hence global premium super car manufacturers like Lamborghini, Ferrari have made their presence felt  in India with one or two showrooms. But there were some who were not very fortunate in terms of customer response. 

 

Buggati Veyron, known as one of the fastest production cars in the world didn’t sell a single unit in India. Priced at over Rs 35 crore, the ultra-luxury hyper car failed to make it to anyone’s garage. Blame the slow moving economy and political instability for that. Just like the Aventador gets a couple of 'doctors' to repair minor bodywork damage or needs to be flown to the USA for major repair work, the Veyron's tyres can be changed on only one of two machines, one in the Middle East and one in the USA. This may be one of the things that deters an Indian from owning this superb piece of engineering in his home country.

Swedish car maker, Koenigsegg which was present in the Indian market since the last three years failed to sell a single car. This is the same story with Gumpert, a German sports car company. Slowing economy is not the only reason the car couldn’t be sold in India. Not so very good roads and lack of high-end service backup are some of the other reasons. Alternatively, these super cars can be owned in other countries where the roads are in good shape and the service back-up is excellent. So it makes more sense to avoid buying these cars in India, until and unless you just want to win the “biggest showoff of the year” award.
