Many of you are already familiar with the Avanti. It isn’t DC’s maiden attempt at building a sports-car though, as there have been other instances in the past; with one concept even featuring in a Bollywood movie. But this one is actually being produced at DC’s plant in Talegaon, near Pune and can be bought by normal people like you and me. The Avanti was first previewed in 2014, at the Auto Expo in Delhi.
