Italian luxury sports car maker Lamborghini is all set to drive in its best selling model 'Gallardo' to India within the first quarter of 2006.

"The plan is to bring the Lamborghini Gallardo within the first quarter of next year," Exclusive Motors Manager (Sales) Rahul Grover (the distributor of Lamborghini in India)said in New Delhi.

While the exact pricing could be known only next month, he said Lamborghini Gallardo could be tagged anywhere between Rs 1 crore and Rs 1.5 crore.

Gallardo would be the latest in the series of crore-plus cars to hit the Indian roads after the likes of Maybach, Rolls Royce Phantom and Bentley Arnage in the recent past.

Grover said the target was to sell about two to three units of Gallardo in the next year.

Automobili Lamborghini Holding SPA, a part of Volkswagen's Audi Group, had rolled out 3,000th Gallardo earlier in December.

It remains to be seen though how Gallardo, which competes with the likes of Ferrari's F30 and Porsche's 911 Turbo, fare in India.

Lamborghini had said it was more concerned with the infrastructure in India than the purchasing capability of its potential customers.
