New Delhi-based DC Design have unveiled the Avanti supercar, inspired by the Studebaker Avanti from the 1960s. With a sleek design that reminds us of the gorgeous Lamborghini Aventador, the car is not that impressive performance-wise, and this is only because its makers wanted to keep it as cheap as possible, in order to give anyone the possibility to once own a supercar.
Available with a Honda V6 engine capable of 400 horsepower, or a 4-cilynder turbocharged Ford with just 265 horsepower, the car needs a little under 7 seconds to complete the 0-60 mph run. It doesn’t sound like a real supercar, and it’s definitely not comparable to the likes of Lamborghini or Bugatti, but it looks pretty good and it costs just approximately $56,300.
Its body is made of aluminum, and manufactured at the DC Design Talegaon plant, while the engines will be shipped to India from the U.K. Avanti’s panels are made of fiberglass, and the total weight of the car is 1,560 kg (3,439 lbs). The transmission is a six-speed dual-clutch unit. DC Design intends to start production with 200 cars per year, and eventually reach 2,000.
