New Car: 2013 DC Avanti

This is the DC Avanti, the first Indian designed sports car.

Unveiled at the Delhi motor show today, it will initially go on sale with a mid-mounted, Ford-sourced, 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine making a claimed 261bhp. A V6 version with 394bhp will go on sale at a later date. Both engines are linked to a six-speed dual clutch transmission.

The Avanti weighs 1560kg, and features extensive use of aluminium. Its makers, who are based in Pune, claim the base model will hit 62mph in less than seven seconds.

DC Design has set a manufacturing goal of 200 cars a year initially, but plans to build up to 2000 cars a year longer term. The car will be sold through dedicated Avanti showrooms in India.
