Sports cars made in India

However, the situation is beginning to change and there have been some advances with regards to exotic sports car brands. Here we will be talking about some of the sports cars that trace their origin back to India.

The car is powered by four individual motors on each wheel pushing out 1000hp combined as well as a micro-turbine jet engine which works as a generator for electric batteries. Though the powertrain looks enticing the company hasn’t released any 0-60mph figure.The entire carbon fiber chassis makes the Vazirani Shul extremely light weight yet maintains the structural integrity. Some parts of the car are left unpainted in order to showcase the carbon fiber work. As of now, there has been no official statement on car’s launch date, but it is expected to be released in 2021.

Tamo Racemo was a Tata motors project that eventually got cancelled due to Tata’s cost cutting plans. Racemo was designed at Tata motors design studio in Turin, Italy and it truly exhibited the Italian design language.

The company claimed that it was capable of doing 0-60mph at less than 6 seconds.
The car’s chassis construction was developed by Marcello Gandini, who is also famous for the development of Lamborghini Miura and Countach. Tamo Racemo would have been a success had the Tata motors decided to go on with the project, it would have seriously challenged the Mazda Miata also known as Mx-5.
