Here's she is Avanti's spiritual successor

Can anyone remember DC Avanti? Well, those DC Design-made coupe car that put India on the world's sports car industry map a few years ago, now it has a spiritual successor in the form of DC Design TCA. The name TCA used here stands for Titanium, Carbon and Aluminum, and this new coupe has debuted at the 2018 Auto Expo held on Februari 2018.

This car was built on Avanti's basis, but the platform underwent significant changes, making the new car model was longer and wider. Speaking of styling, Dilip Chhabria the designer said that he took inspiration from Ferrari LaFerrari and Pagani Zonda when drawing TCAs, although the front of the car will remind us of the Zenvo ST1, and the rear looks a bit of an Acura NSX feel.

If DC Avanti carries a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder gasoline engine, and this TCA sports car now uses a naturally aspirated V6 engine with a capacity of 3.8 liters that can produce power of 320 hp. And this also means the power is 70 hp bigger than its predecessor.

With the power amount as mentioned above, it can make this mid-engined sports car accelerate from rest to 100 km/h claimed to only take 4.5 seconds. But unfortunately the top speed itself has not been disclosed, but TCA reportedly comes with a top speed limiter programmed to be active at a speed of 200 km/h. (We assumed, this is to adjust to the road conditions in India).

And if Avanti is available with an option of 6-speed manual gearboxes and homemade automated gearboxes, while the TCA has been engineered by using a newly developed 6-speed automatic gearbox.
Because this is a special edition car, so these sports car will be built as many as 299 units and sells it with a price tag of around US. $61,000. Reportedly, there're 60 units have been sold, meanwhile deliveries will commence in October this year.

One more thing, till this day the Indian sports car manufacturer has not detailed the interior specifications for TCA and even no details regarding the safety features were given this model. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | NEWS.MAXABOUT | AUTOCAR]
