Tata Motors has finally unveiled a new sports coupe concept at its 20th year of participation at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show. Apart from the glimpse of the Tata Tigor and the Nexon at the show, the star of the show was Tata’s first sports coupe, called the TAMO RACEMO. Considering TAMO has been established to develop products with quicker turn-around times, we expect a near production version of the RACEMO to be shown at the 2018 Auto Expo in India.

The two-seater sports coupe in its concept guise looks quite radical with typical rakish sportscar windscreen, lots of muscular bulges and plenty of floating panels all around. The icing on the cake is that the RACEMO also gets ‘scissor’ doors which we hope makes it to the production car as well. The front of the RACEMO reminds one of the DC Avanti in a lots of places and truthfully said, that’s not a bad thing considering the Avanti is a good looking car too. All said and done, it might not possess the good looking genes of an Italian but looking at the details, the RACEMO comes across as quite a stunner. Another first for the TAMO RACEMO is the introduction of the MOFlex platform, a structural technology that enables greater freedom in surface design efficient large-scale part integration leading to modularity and faster time to market. What is also interesting is that the RACEMO concept took just 24 months to turn from sketch into reality.

While Tata has unveiled very little specs, it was enough to give us an idea about RACEMO’s sporty credentials. While the engine capacity wasn’t revealed, Tata did tell us that it will be a Revotron unit that will push out an impressive 190PS @ 6500rpm and 210Nm of torque @ 2500rpm. From what we think, this could be a 2 litre turbocharged unit.

While there is still some time before we get to drive the actual car, one can drive it in the popular Microsoft gaming franchise, Forza Horizon 3. RACEMO is the first Indian car to be available on this platform. Considering the fact that the game boasts some of the most elite cars available, this is quite a big draw for the RACEMO.
