Tata Nano with 230 hp (1)

While standard Tata Nano possesses a 624 cc two-cylinder 37 hp, JA Motorsport offers a 230 hp 1.3 turbo four engine on Super Tata Nano that revs way above 10,000rpm.

JA Motorsports from Coimbatore has taken the humble Tata Nano and turned it into a Super Nano. They have spent INR 25 lakhs on its modification. This means that it is the most expensive Tata Nano ever made at 10 times the price of the standard model.

Super Tata Nano is powered by a 1.3 liter engine offering 230 bhp and claiming a top speed of over 190 kmph. It has a power to weight ratio of 384.61 PS/tonne. For reference, the same of KTM RC 390 has only 262 PS/tonne.

Showcased back in 2014, the car is now put to test in a new video.

JA Motorsports, a team responsible for building race cars, has spent INR 25 lakhs ($39,050) on modifying the Tata Nano giving it more power and performance.

Added track width on the front and rear, MRF ZLO slick tires, flared wheel arches and massive front and rear bumpers are evident on the Super Tata Nano. It also gets smoked head and tail lamps, carbon alloy wheels and new body kit along with AP Racing disc brakes.

Autocar India has now taken this car to test on a race track. Watch the video below.

Interiors of Super Tata Nano also receive some modifications with blacked-out dashboard with carbon fiber accents, Recaro seating and flat bottom steering wheel. A digital racing instrument panel, aluminum paddle shifters and foot pedals add to its sporty appeal.

Sadly, this car is not for sale. Neither it is road legal.
