DC Avanti

A DC Avanti was caught sitting pretty at the Ahmedabad outlet of the famous designer. India’s first home brewn sports car, the production ready Avanti is armed with a few changes from the prototype shown at 2014’s Auto Expo- especially the newly designed hexagonal headlamp bezels and a few other minor revisions. The Avanti’s concept design was first revealed to the public at the Auto Expo back in 2012.

To be produced at DC’s plant in Talegaon,Maharashtra, the Avanti will feature a carbon-fibre body shell and gets a lightweight space frame chassis. Powered by Ford’s 2-litre, 4-cylinder turbocharged EcoBoost engine mounted in the middle in true sports car tradition, 254 PS of power and 360 Nm of twist are channeled to the rear wheels of the Avanti. All this power and torque is handled by a 6-speed manual gearbox.

DC claims that the 1.5-tonne Avanti can get up to 100 km/h in less than 6-seconds and will keep accelerating till the car hits an electronic limited top speed of 180 km/h. And being an Indian supercar, the DC Avanti will come with a Indian-road friendly 170mm of ground clearance, similar to that found on several hatchbacks.
