Tata unveils its first sports coupe, the TAMO RACEMO

Tata unveils its first sports coupe, the TAMO RACEMO

Tata made some huge waves at its 20th year of participation at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show. While we got a glimpse of the Tata Tigor and the Nexon, the big news was the unveiling of Tata’s first sports coupe, the TAMO RACEMO. The two-seater sports coupe in its concept trim looks quite radical with typical rakish sportscar windscreen, lots of muscular bulges and plenty of floating panels all around. 

The icing on the cake is that the RACEMO also gets ‘scissor’ doors which we hope makes it to the production car as well. The front of the RACEMO reminds one of the DC Avanti in a lot of places and truthfully said, that’s not a bad thing considering the Avanti is a good looking car too. All said and done, it might not possess the good looking genes of an Italian but looking at the details, the RACEMO comes across as quite a stunner.

Another first for the TAMO RACEMO is the introduction of the MOFlex platform, a structural technology that enables greater freedom in surface design efficient large-scale part integration leading to modularity and faster time to market. What is also interesting is that the RACEMO concept took just 24 months to turn from sketch into reality.

One look at the specs is enough to give us an idea about the RACEMO’s sporty credentials. The car gets a mid-mounted 1.2 litre turbocharged and intercooled, 3-cylinder Revotron unit that will push out an impressive 190PS @ 6500rpm and 210Nm of torque @ 2500rpm. Now that is some serious power from a three cylinder engine. It also gets a 6-speed AMT transmission with paddle shifters.

To make it handle like a sportscar the car gets independant double wishbone suspension at the front and back along with 205/50 R17 tyres in the front and wider and larger 235/45 R18 tyres at the back.

While there is still some time before we get to drive the actual car, one can drive it in the popular Microsoft gaming franchise, Forza Horizon 3. RACEMO is the first Indian car to be available on this platform. Considering the fact that the game boasts some of the most elite cars available, this is quite a big draw for the RACEMO. 

Considering TAMO has been established to develop products with quicker turn-around times, expect near to production version of the RACEMO to be shown at the 2018 Auto Expo in India. Keep watching this space for more.
