Ferrari is one of the most iconic supercar brands in the world; with India representing a dynamic emerging market for supercars. A market of over 1 billion people, Ferrari had only 50 clients in all of India prior to its opening in New Dehli in 2011.
With a rich motorsport legacy, the supercar brand naturally gained a strong following and status in India upon the opening. The official launch made India the 58th market of the Prancing Horse.

Ferrari returned to the Indian market with a brand new showroom and partnership in 2015, followed by a second showroom in Mumbai. The elite list of Ferrari owners in India has grown extensively as the super cars continue to illustrate supremacy in speed and engineering precision.

Ferrari India sells its entire range in the country, except the LaFerrari hypercar California T, the Ferrari FF and the Ferrari 488 GTB, Ferrari 458 Spider and Ferrari 458, with car prices starting from $188,425.
