This sports car concept appears with a coupe body and can only accommodate two seaters in the cabin and is a design work from Tata Motors Design Studio in Turin, Italy. This car is built using the MoFlex Multi-Material Sandwich (MMS) structure, and is the first car to use this type of structure. Just info, MMS is the latest technology that makes it easy to apply exterior and interior designs.

"The style and design will provide new experiences and technology, Racemo is proof of consumer character development that has become one of the digital lifestyles. This sports car will also be the best solution thanks to the new appearance and showing Tata Motors' vision and mission," Guenter added.

But unfortunately in July 2017, the Indian automotive manufacturer decided to cancel the launch of the version production of the TAMO Racemo sports car. Yes, this sports car project is one of the most ambitious projects in Tata Motors history. On the same occasion the automotive manufacturer also said that the sports car had reached the stage where they were ready to produce and launch the production version.

The main reason for stopping this car project is a financial problem. Initially TAMO Racemo was intended only for design studies, not mass produced. When shown to high ranked officials at Tata Motors, they agreed to produce these sports car. But then canceled it, because the cost is expensive.

"But now we have put it into 'ice crates'. Whenever we need it we can bring it out and then produce it if the financial conditions allow for commercialization," added Butschek.
Surprisingly, Tata Motors also showcased the electric version of its sports car ‘Racemo+-‘ at this year’s Auto Expo. The Home-grown carmaker unveiled Racemo electric concept at the Auto Show.

It is powered by a 200 hp electric motor with 210 Nm of peak torque. It has the lithium-ion battery pack. Tata Racemo+- is a two-seater that features a 6-speed AMT transmission.
