Tata Motors unveiled its Racemo sports car to the world at the ongoing Geneva Motor Show this week. This is also the first time when Tata Motors has announced a product under its TaMo sub-brand.
The Racemo is expected to make it to showrooms. However, Tata hasn't issued a statement regarding its production prospects, but a market launch could take place sometime in 2018.
The car will be available in two versions, dubbed Racemo and Racemo+. The former is a road-legal one, while the latter is a track-oriented version.
Interestingly, both the cars will be featured on Microsoft’s Forza Horizon 3, making it the first Indian car to be available on this platform. It is also the first car that will use Tata’s new connected tech, which it has developed in collaboration with Microsoft.
It is powered by a turbocharged Revotron engine (probably a mid-mounted, rear wheel drive layout), which puts out 190PS of max power at 6500rpm and 210Nm of peak torque at 2,500rpm. TaMo has not revealed the engine capacity but we’re hopeful of getting a closer look at this car at the Auto Expo 2018 in India.
