DC Design Avanti Sports Car Shown off in Delhi
Other than its Tata Motors owned Jaguars, India isn’t exactly known for its sports cars. However, we have to say the DC Design Avanti is a pretty intriguing looking vehicle.
The car offers bold and dramatic body styling, with a large honeycomb grille and hood air intakes dominating the front, and large air cooling ports in front of the rear wheels. It’s expected to be powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter DOHC four-cylinder engine that can output 240 horsepower and 270 lb-ft. of torque. That’s certainly not supercar power, but it’s also more than you can get in an FR-S or BRZ. Though weighing in at about 3,443 pounds, it’s not the lightest weight two-seater out there, though.
The Avanti design has been floating around since late 2011, but DC Design showed off a bright green prototype of the Avanti at the 2014 Delhi Auto Expo, and expects to start production later this year, with a retail price that works out to somewhere between $40,000 to $48,000 (USD). We doubt the vehicle will set foot outside of India, but you never know.
