Gwalior, 4 February 2015: Below the lowdown of what are the top cars which will debut this year in India. The Indian customr will be spoilt for choice. Here’s why…
Rolls-Royce Ghost Series II
Showcased in Mumbai in November last year, the India-bound Rolls-Royce Ghost Series II cars are also among the bespoke in the world. Ghost Series II comes with range of innovative technological, design and engineering features that position it as the modern super-luxury car for the executve on-the-go – an oasis of calm in a frenetic business world. The standard wheel-base version starts from Rs. 4.5 crore.
The i8 – expected to debut soon – gets the pug-in hybrid concept on a premium brand like BMW. The aluminium drive module incorporates internal combustion engine and electric motor, battery, power electronics and chassis components. The maximum driving range on a full fuel tank and a completely charged battery is over 500 km, and it hits 0-100 kmph in 4.5 seconds. The price starts at Rs. 1.5 crore.
This is the car that replaced the iconic SLS-AMG gullwing. The 2-door, 2-seat sports car made its global debut in 2014 and will drive into Inia this year. But you need to have deep pockets to park this beauty into your garage – it will set you back by over Rs. 3 crore.

The new Porsche 911 Carrera GTS closes the gap between the 911 Carrera S and the 911 GT3. Four models of the GTS will be on offer – a coupe and a cabriolet, each with rear-wheel or all-wheel drive. The 911 Carrera GTS sprints from zero to 100 kmph in 4 seconds (Cabriolet: 4.2 seconds). Capable of a top speed of 306 kmph, the model will cost upwards of Rs. 1.7 crore.
