ferrari eyes 2010 india launch

Ferraristi of the subcontinent rejoice! Come 2010, Indians won't have to go to Singapore to put a prancing horse in their garage, says The Economic Times, as the Scuderia should be in-country by then. Earlier reports had Ferrari pegged to enter the market this year, but there's still work to do. So says Gabriele Lalli, head of Magic India Discover, Ferrari SpA, a curiously-named publicity tour of the subcontinent, which is currently showcasing Ferrari's exquisite 612 Scaglietti Grand Touring model. "(Ferrari) needs to set up a sales and marketing network in India," says Lalli. "For us, customer satisfaction is of prime importance. Hence, we will also have to take care of these aspects before we enter India." Currently only 36 'rrari's. all of which have been specially imported. regularly prowl India's roads. Fiat, who owns the legendary brand, already has a presence in India, building the Fiat Palio in a joint venture with Tata Motors. Incidentally, India's purchasing-power-adjusted per-capita income of about $4,500/year means the average Indian will only have to save for about 45 years to afford a new "entry-level" Ferarri 430. Sounds worth it to us
