Car News DC Design Launched

Made in India sportscar DC Avanti does not have airbags (Brochure added)

DC Avanti India Launch

Power comes from Renault sourced 2.0 litre turbocharged petrol engine generating 250PS.

DC Avanti sports car is India’s first indigenous supercar designed by DC Design house in India itself. Priced from INR 35.93 lakhs (e-showroom, Maharashtra), each Avanti is personalized to owner’s liking, thus price depends on level of customization.

It is powered by a Renault sourced Euro V compliant 2.0 liter turbocharged petrol engine offering peak power of 248 bhp and peak torque of 340 Nm from 2,750-5,000 rpm. Mated to a 6 speed manual gearbox, acceleration from 0 to 100 kmph can be achieved in 6 seconds while top speed 180 kmph.

Though DC claims that the Avanti receives a carbon fiber body shell with a lightweight space frame chassis, it is not only surprising, but shocking as well that a car which will cost you INR 40+ lakh on road, does not come with airbags, not even as option.
