KUN Exclusive is the authorised Rolls-Royce Motor Cars dealer for Chennai and Hyderabad. Rolls-Royce Motor Cars have five outlets in the Southern region. To a question on the company's business performance last year, he said, India was bit of a strange market last year because of so many changes in "duties, GST and demonestisation."

"From the automotive perspective, definitely there was lack of stability last year. It has to stabilise somehow. You cannot keep tinkering a business area. It needs stability. Well mostly it is on various taxation issues, GST, demonetisation and many many things had an impact," he noted. "The car pricing involves 214% of import duty plus Goods and Service Tax. We have seen most changes in shortest period of time and that is definitely not good (for our business)," he said.

To another query on the product line up, he said, "Cullinan will be coming later this year. Then we have Phantom, and Ghost extendable base, Wreath and then Dawn. By the end of the year there will be five model launch plus BlackBadge."
