The production Avanti revealed at the Auto Expo this year saw the lights, bumpers and air intakes change from the concept car.

The Avanti’s powertrain remains a bit of a mystery for now. While early reports said that the car will come with Ford’s 2.0-liter turbocharged EcoBoost unit, sources tell us that the Avanti is powered by a Renault-sourced engine.

Irrespective, the Avanti should still hold its claim of hitting 0-100 km/h in 6 seconds and a top-speed of at least 180 km/h. The car is built on a spaceframe chassis and is reported to weigh 1,580 kg.
