Infinity has been selling the British made cars for last six years.
Aston Martin sells Vantage in the price range of Rs 2.4-2.7 crore, Raipde at Rs 3.4 crore while Vanquish at Rs 5.50 crore. He said due to the tax structure, Indian buyers need to spend three times than those elsewhere.

When asked if Aston Martin will bring diesel versions, he said, the company may look at electric variants in the next one year, but diesel looks distant option.
