The DC Avanti is powered by a 2.0-liter Ford EcoBoost engine.

The Avanti, first revealed as a concept by the Indian design company at the 2012 Auto Expo, was shown in a production-ready avatar at the 2014 Delhi Auto Expo this year. Compared to the concept, the production model saw minor changes to the lights, exterior, interior and frame.

Power for the Avanti comes from a 2.0-liter four-cylinder Ford EcoBoost engine. DC claims the engine is good for 250 bhp and 360 Nm of torque, which is enough to accelerate the Avanti from 0-100 km/h in a scant 6 seconds. The top-speed though is 180 km/h. The Avanti is a rear wheel drive car and is driven via a 6-speed manual gearbox. It weighs 1,580 kg and has an ample ground clearance of 170 mm.
