Despite being among the most expensive brands in India, UK super luxury carmaker, Rolls Royce, has projected a healthy growth in the country led by the expected rise in billionaires by 2023.

The company's latest launch Ghost Series II costs upwards of 4.5 crore in India, a far cry from its price in markets such as the US, where it costs the equivalent of 1.86 crore, Brazil ( 1.7 crore), UK ( 2.3 crore) and Australia ( 2.6 crore).

The company said that despite steep taxes stifling its growth, India still held potential for them. Luxury cars in India attract import duties to the tune of 160%.

"With established presence in these two great cities, we are well poised to meet demand for super luxury cars further fuelled by this anticipated growth."
