DC Avanti spotted testing in Maharashtra

The first made-in-India supercar, the DC Avanti, was spotted testing near Satara, Maharashtra. The car has been designed and developed by DC Design in our country. DC unveiled the vehicle at the recently concluded Auto Expo.

The DC Avanti is a completely new car unlike other cars from the renowned car design house which have an existing car as a base and have modifications done to it. DC Design might be conducting some final tests on the production version of this car. The camouflaged test vehicle does not reveal the minor changes that might be done. However, we expect the car to retain most of the elements that were seen on the car displayed at the Auto Expo 2014.

DC Design has powered the Avanti with an EcoBoost four-cylinder 2.0-litre DOHC engine sourced from Ford. This motor, that features direct injection, produces 245bhp of power and 366Nm of torque. It is mated to a six-speed manual transmission. The current mill is Euro 5 compliant which can be upgraded to the upcoming Euro 6 norms enabling the company to consider it for the export market as well.

The Avanti was unveiled at the 2012 Auto Expo and two years later, DC Design brought the production spec of the car to the biennial event this year. The carmaker had announced that they will commence with the production of the car, soon, at their manufacturing facility in Gujarat. The initial models will be built at their workshop in Pune. The car is expected to launch this year and will be priced at around Rs 25-30 lakh. The Avanti will create a category in itself as it will be the first supercar produced in our country by an Indian manufacturer.
