DC Avanti 310 limited edition sportscar revealed with a price tag of Rs.44 lakh; production restricted to 31 units and deliveries commence from April 2016
In our country, we have passionate motorists found everywhere and the craze for supercars cannot be considered as second to none. Ferrari, Lamborghini, Porsche and Mercedes AMG have learned the potential Indian market possesses for their flagship sportscars and thus waste no time in bringing their global launches revealed here.
For instance, the rear-wheel drive Lamborghini Huracan 580-2 arrived at the Indian shores within three days of its world premiere. These supercars are for the well-off as they cost in crores but the subject of an affordable performance based machine had always been a distant reality.
DC Designs decided to shatter this morale and built Avanti sports car priced at just about Rs. 35 lakh. The brainchild of world-renowned car designer Dilip Chhabria was manufactured in India after debuting at the 2012 Delhi Auto Expo and received heaps of praise from the auto industry. Now, the company has gone one better with the introduction of DC Avanti 310 limited edition.
Only 31 examples of the limited edition 310 will be available for customers to buy. To be endorsed as a limited production model there must be something significantly different to that of the standard car. Looking into those details, we could instantly realise the car has become more bonkers in its appeal with an aggressive stance topped off by the dark finished forged alloy wheels in addition to LED head and tail lamps.
It’s in similar proportions to the standard Avanti and doesn’t have any major design revisions but there has been a slew of carbon fibre components added to it. It gets carbon fibre two piece front splitter, sill extensions, rear diffuser and rear deck spoiler for aerodynamic benefits.
The Avanti 310 limited edition is powered by the same 2.0-litre 16V Renault-sourced direct injection turbo petrol engine that churns out 250bhp in the standard Avanti but it has been retuned to produce 310bhp and hence came forth the nomenclature.
The boosted up engine is paired with six-speed dual-clutch transmission whilst an in-house six-speed AMT (Automated Manual Transmission) with paddle shifter is offered as an option. The suspension has been lowered by 20mm and therefore ride height now stands at 150mm. The mid-engine rear-wheel drive layout makes the Avanti 310 a proper driver’s car as anti-roll bars have been stiffened to improve ride quality and cornering stability.
Inside you could find all Alcantara leather sport seats and a TFT instrument display with sport seats. The Avanti 310 will be available in three colour options: Grey with Green, White with Blue and Matte Grey with Orange. The car will go on sale from April 2016 onwards and will be priced at Rs. 44 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).
