Being a super car, it is allegedly under the scanner of environmentalists who feel fuel consumption is a lot Due to its premium nature & pricing the sales are easily affected by the macro-economic events like the late 2000s crisis which lead to halving of its annual sales

To go increase customer relations events & activities which will enhance the ownership experience To increase the global reach as currently it is present in very few regions

To do away with the regional quota system & sell on the basis of demand, it was seen that when they launched their models in India the demand far exceeded the supply thus they lost the customer to the competitors

The threat is the niche regional players & custom modifiers who have the regional presence & ability to make a car to exact taste of the buyer Intense competition in the niche segment from other premium brands Govt policies against high fuel consuming super cars
