The car is powered by a 2-liter engine with a limited top speed and good ground clearance, auguring well with its tagline 'India's first supercar'.

The Avanti is driven by a 2-liter Ford Ecoboost turbo petrol engine that generates 250 hp and 360 Nm of torque, linked to a 6-speed manual transmission, giving it a 0-100 kph acceleration time of 6 seconds and a top speed of 180 kph. The gross vehicle weight is 1,580 kg and its ground clearance 170 mm, well adapted for Indian conditions.
