DC Design Reveals Avanti Supercar Concept in Delhi


India’s maiden supercar has finally taken a bow at the Delhi Auto Expo.

India's premier automotive design firm DC Design has finally revealed its new supercar concept and it looks very promising. Unveiled today at the Delhi Auto Expo, India's first ever supercar looks sleekly styled and has been given the name the Avanti. According to Indian Autos Blog, legendary Indian actor Amitabh Bachchan was on hand to unveil the vehicle, which was met with a loud round of applause from the reporters in the packed auditorium.

"We intend to produce 300 units of the Avanti in 2013-2014 and if all goes well we could ramp up the production to go into four figures per annum," said DC Design founder Dilip Chhabria upon unveiling the vehicle. Power is to come from Ford's EcoBoost 2.0-liter 4-cylinder turbocharged engine with direct injection and VVT. With DOHC and four valves per cylinder, it can deliver more horsepower and torque than a naturally aspirated 3.0-liter V6. Rated at 240hp and 270lb-ft of torque, the power will be delivered to the tarmac via a MMT 6-speed manual transmission with an optional power shift six-speed dual clutch gearbox.
