Auto Expo 2012: DC Avanti supercar makes its debut

Article by Christian A., on January 5, 2012

The first Indian designed supercar named the DC Avanti has just been introduced at the Delhi motor show. Initially, a mid-mounted, Ford-sourced, 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine will be available. This could deliver 261bhp. The company will release a V6 version, which produces 394bhp, at a later date. These two engines are linked to a six-speed dual clutch transmission.

The Avanti weighs 1560kg and it uses aluminum extensively. The owners assert that the base model could accelerate to 62mph in less than seven seconds.

DC Design aims to produce 200 cars annually for now but it has set a goal to produce 2000 cars a year longer term. This car will be offered in the various dedicated Avanti showrooms throughout India. [source: Autocar]
