DC Design from has revealed first sight of their supercar in New Delhi following a teaser image from a few days ago.

Called the Avanti, which is a reference to the Studbaker Avanti from Tintin comics, the Indian supercar will initially be available with a Ford 4-cylinder turbo engine producing 265 hp (268 PS / 197 kW), and then followed by a Honda V6 making 400 hp (298 kW / 406 PS) - modest figures indeed for a supercar.

Not helping matters either is a unacceptable supercar sprint time to 100km/h in less than seven seconds. All this in an Aventador matching 3,440 lbs (1,560 kg) vehicle with a 6-speed dual-clutch transmission.

Manufactured at DC Design's Talegaon plant in Pune, the body is made of aluminium while the body panels are made of fiberglass (GRP). Engines will be prepared in the UK and then shipped to India.

Despite our initial supercar skepticism, we're reminded that the Avanti is intended to be an affordable supercar priced at 30 lakh rupees ($56,277 / €43,500). Once that notion sinks in, this actually doesn't look so bad after all.

DC Design plans to produce 200 units per year, approximately one car every two days, with the hopes of gradually building up to 2000 units per year.

I would like to see more of the back and side of the car, because the front doesn't look that overly impressive.

Actually it doesn't contains any of R8 or 458 design forms, but it really gives very strong impress of that.

the strange love-child of the Ferrari 458, Audi R8 and the 60's Bat-mobile!
