1) Define your business idea in not more than 100 words along with its USP (10 to 12 lines)
The business plan is to export foreign sports cars in Indian market and latter on, the organization will only focus on American Muscle car in order to grab attention of the Indian consumers. In contemporary business environment, companies in this industry are capitalizing on brand value and therefore, selecting this product would help the company in attracting customers in Indian market.
Companies can start exhibiting some of the cars at auto expo in India; after getting the idea of the amount of peoples that are interested in these cars. If a raise of followers is noticed, then they can proceed for muscle car stores in India.
Muscle cars are equipped with high power engines and vintage bodies, so these cars will attract a wide range of age group. As the age group of 20-30 will find it interesting because of its speed, mid age group of 30-45 will find the masculine looks and power attractive. And the age group of 45 and above will crave it because of its vintage and classic looks (Amador et al., 2015).
Gender really don’t matter in this case, both the genders can be the target for this market.
The costumers will surely be educated to a high amount of levels, as these cars are mainly manufactured on frames with vintage and classis looks, not a person with low level of education will adore these vintage beauties.
As these cars offer high power and speed, not everyone will purchase these cars. The target profession for this breed of car is automobile enthusiastic and garage owners. As these cars require maintenance frequently, persons with experience of maintaining cars will find these ones interesting (Baldwin and Lopez‐Gonzalez, 2015).
These cars will only be affordable to the persons with high income, as the manufacturing cost of these cars is very high
So, the stores must be located in places where some kind of automobile activity is done.

The automobile industry in India is cheap because of the various factors such as availability of skilled labor at low cost, robust R&D centers and low cost steel production. The automobile industry of the India provides great opportunities for investment and direct and undirected skill labor. The store of muscle car in India will get skilled and unskilled labor in low cost, which leads to saving of the sufficient price, which is spending for workers unnecessary.
The Indian automobile industry is about to witness major changes in the form of electric vehicle. However, the introduction of the muscle car in the market will leads to new attraction for the non-electric cars.
As the sales growth of the automobiles are increasing in the Indian market which leads to increase the demands for the parts of the cars. So if muscle cars are introduced in Indian market it will leads a way to opening of the spare parts of the muscle car (Camilleri, 2018).
In general the opening of stores of muscle car shop in the Indian market will make the car more reasonable because all transport and transport duty of the vehicle will be deducted from the price which leads to the reasonable price of the muscle car for the common people.
