Over the decades, Indian cars, or
rather cars of Indian origin, have enthralled car enthusiasts all across the
world with their versatility, functionality, and reasonable price tags. But
there are many cars that have always remained the ultimate dream cars for
most Indians but never reached the subcontinent's shorelines. Following are
the top 10 classic cars that could have been the Great Indian cars had they
been launched here:
The ultimate super car of all times, Ferrari has been
long dreamed speeding past all
. A fantastic rendition from the legendary
sports car maker, Ferrari will be an instant hit once it is launched in
India, but that seems a distant dream, as the car maker shows no such signs
as of now.
This car model from the Milanese sportscar/sports
sedan maker is one of the most achingly beautiful cars in the world today,
and certainly one of the most wanted Indian cars of fantasy.
This famed ex-Ford owned, exotic Bond-mobile has
always topped the list of most cherished Indian cars of fantasy. It went
though a rough patch in the recent past, but now that the brand is under the
ownership of Prodrive, Indian car enthusiasts can well expect the debut of
the Aston car in the Indian super car market.
General Motors have always kept this flagship car of
theirs out of the reach of Indian car lovers. But if they were launched in
India, the Escalade
and CTS sedan would have
been surely a big hit with their dynamic features and high bling quotient.
Presently owned by Swedish car maker Spyker, Saab was
originally introduced to the world auto market by General Motors. This
Indian car of fantasy, for most die-hard car lovers, has exceptional design
features, but yet a comparatively lesser known brand in India. But who
knows, like Hyundai and Skoda, it may soon become a familiar name in the
Indian auto industry!
Our cricket icons have had these dream Indian cars for
long, now it's the turn for common Indians (middle class elite is not
uncommon in India nowadays!) to own Hummer. It is a super SUV or rather MUV,
which can give many Indian SUV makers a run for their money.
Those who have a thing for uber-cool machines on road,
Lexus is the ultimate Indian car of fantasy. The Lexusbrand has amazing
market value in India, and can be an outright success at par or even better
than Mercedes-Benz or
It's high time now for the Japanese auto maker to consider
introducing this car in India. One of the most stylish dream Indian cars,
Mazda is what all driving enthusiasts crave for. Some of its variants which
can make a great impact in Indian car industry are Mazda 2 and 3 models
will, Miata convertible and the unique RX-8.
Not every Indian is as lucky as the liquor giant Vijay
Mallya, who owns this car one of the finest of all dream Indian cars.
Maserati is yet to hit the Indian car market, but one can still own it at
the cost of Rs 1.5 crore! The Quattroporte-n-sports car combine offers the
best of both worlds fantastic sports car looks and sophistication
with plush features.
The sister brand Peugeot made a little appearance here in
India, but didn't get enough acceptance. But the same thing is unlikely to
happen with Citroren. The C3 Picasso - a five-door MUV can be an instant hit
amongst all Indian cars if launched in the domestic car market.
