German luxury carmaker Audi is planning to launch its super car R8 in the country towards the end of this year.
“India is an important market for Audi, and there has been a tremendous interest in the Audi R8 up to pre-orders by our exclusive customers in India, so it was inevitable that we launch the Audi R8 here,” Audi India Managing Director Benoit Tiers said in a statement.
The company, however, has not decided about the pricing of the car in the Indian market.
The Audi R8, which has won several awards in Germany and Europe, would be available at the company’s seven exclusive dealerships in Delhi, Gurgaon, Mumbai, Chandigarh, Pune, Hyderabad and Bangalore.
The mid-engine Audi R8 would come with 420 hp engine and a displacement of 4,163cc which translates into a mind blowing top whack of 300 kmph and a 0 – 100 time of 4.5 secs.
