      Gaydon based British exotic car maker Aston Martin, the maker of some of the most achingly beautiful and sensationally swift cars in the world will officially be launching its cars in India on April 15. The company will bring its cars to India in association with Mumbai based Infinity Group. The company also has BMWs dealership in Mumbai and Indore, and is into everything high-end that you could possibly imagine – from yachts to ultra expensive cars. The launch will happen at the Trident hotel in Mumbai.
      The details about the models to be launched and the price have obviously not been divulged, but expect the prices of the car to range from Rs. 1.2 to 3.5 crore rupees in the Indian market.

      Oh, forgot to add, couple of weeks back when we were going to Kerala, we spotted a Aston Martin at Avinashi. It just zipped past us and I couldn't get a proper glance, but saw the rear and it was definitely an AM, should be a Vantage.

      Talking about AMs in India still can't forget those days VM used to drive his AM from Bangalore-Chennai on Saturday nights. He used to have his bodyguards following him in another supercar tailing him.

      Hope we get some buyers in bangalore who have a heart and pocket to care for it too! Have come across a few with "big cars" but low on taste to maintain it!!! Looks like india is on a roll and the new generation rich are on a splurge

      Wonderful Cammy.

      But 20 crores is too much man. BUt then also people are there to buy atleast for the sake of exclusivity.

      Cammy, is the last set of pics from the Indian model. I think No. the reason being it shows left hand drive system. But the profile looks awesome.
