Just after releasing a teaser image, the supercar manufacturers DC Design from New Delhi have just revealed their new child. Symbolizing the Studbaker Avanti from the Tintin comics, the car has been called Avanti.

This sleek Indian supercar will be available with a 4-cylinder Ford turbocharged engine that develops 265 HP or a Honda 400 HP V6 engine, numbers which don’t really make us think of a supercar. Plus, the acceleration is totally not worthy of the “supercar” nomenclature.

It goes from 0 to 62 mph in less than seven seconds. These are implemented in a Lamborghini Aventador-like body, along with a 6-speed dual-clutch transmission. The total weight of the car is around 1,560 kg. The aluminum body is made in Pune, at the DC Design Talegaon plant.

The panels are of a lighter source, being made of fiberglass, while the engines will have to make a long trip to India, due to the fact that they will be manufactured in the UK. The reason for which that car doesn’t boast the highest technology available or doesn’t really impress with performance is that the manufacturers wanted to keep it as cheap as possible, giving everyone the possibility of owning a supercar.

The price is set at $56,277 per unit, or €43,500. The plant has in plan the production of 200 units per year, hoping that it will rise to 2,000.
