Mr. Dilip Chhabria known as DC Design is one of the most successful designer or we can say one of the best modifiers to give a completely whole new look to the existing one in the Indian market. DC Design had already unveiled the production version of the country’s first real sports car, the DC Avanti at the 2014 Auto Expo. Now, the Pune-based customizing firm has given India’s first sports car a tagline “Feel Alive”.
DC Avanti being a mid-engine sports car measures 4550mm, 1965mm and 1200mm in length, width and height respectively, at an approximate cost of INR 38-40 lakhs, ex-Showroom, for new customers.. The external dimensions of DC Avanti are actually more than Lamborghini’s Gallardo in all perspective. Thinking of a sports car, one question would always raise in Indian minds i,e whether this sports car would be fit to run in Indian roads to be precise the ground clearance which would actually be less in case of any sports car. But DC has well designed this car keeping this in mind perhaps DC Avanti will offer a ground clearance of 170 mm which is equivalent to the India’s best selling hatchback Maruti Suzuki Swift.
DC Avanti features 330mm ventilated four-pot disc brakes at the front and 295mm at the rear, double wishbone suspension on all wheels, monotube with gas-charged shock absorbers, ABS developed by Continental, coil springs to perform the dampening duties, 20 inch alloy wheels, carbon fibre body parts, 255/35 front and 295/30 rear tyres.
Coming to the interiors Avanti features hooded dials, chrome surrounds, body colored separators, central console with stacked screens, soft touch buttons for air conditioning, touch screen infotainment system and three spoke steering wheel. DC Avanti is powered with a 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbocharged engine which produces a maximum power of 248 BHP at a maximum torque of 24.6 KGM.
Booking for first batch of DC Avanti is closed, deliveries of which will begin in early 2015. DC Design has started taking bookings for the second batch of DC Avanti for down payment of INR 5 lakhs.
