Indian Autos Blog reader, Mr. Amit Gupta, spotted the DC Avanti testing near Gurgaon recently. The Avanti, originally revealed as a concept at the 2012 Auto Expo, was expected to commence deliveries earlier this year. While the company showcased the production ready model at this year’s Auto Expo, there was no announcement made regarding deliveries to customers.
