Rolls-Royce Motor Cars has launched its Phantom Series II in India, the latest version of the super luxury car first launched in 2003.

The company is also looking at adding two more outlets in the country, taking the total number to 5 by the end of the year, said Herfried Hasenoehrl, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars’ General Manager for Emerging Markets, Asia.

At present, it has three outlets – Mumbai, Delhi and Hyderabad – and the company intends to open another outlet in Chandigarh. The fifth one would be closer to Maharashtra, he said, declining to name the location.

“The super luxury segment is unimpacted by the economic slowdown. The Indian market continues to prove its appetite for luxury products. There is sustained demand from the country’s discerning client base, who appreciate the timeless design of Phantom Series II,” said Hasenoehrl.

In 2011, Rolls-Royce sold 3,538 cars worldwide, its greatest ever sales. The company, which does not provide India numbers, expects to sell more cars this year.

The new Phanton II, priced upwards of Rs 4.6 crore, offers fully LED headlamps as standard for Phantom Series II. The model is equipped with an 8-speed automatic gearbox, while new driver assistance technologies, satellite navigation system, front, rear and top-view cameras are the other features.
