The seed of the Avanti was sown with the DC ‘S’ showcased at the 2008 Auto Expo at Delhi. The huge interest and response propelled us to think of developing a Sports car.
Effective ground work, market research and feasibility studies lead to a drawing board version of the envisaged sports car.
DC Design showcased the ‘AVANTI’ a brand new avatar. This car, christened the ‘Avanti’, was shown to a rapturous audience and was critically acclaimed. This response further convinced DC Design to launch this product in a niche segment.
Through the year 2013, the focus was on finalizing the design and engineering aspects of the Avanti. All vendor components were finalized and design and engineering was being calibrated around these components.
As per plan, the first pre–production Avanti was showcased at the 2014 Auto Expo as the final designed, engineered and produced version of the original 2012 concept. While this version was unmistakably identifiable as the 2012 Avanti concept, in effect there are no two parts in common with the original concept.
The DC Avanti finally hit the Indian roads in 2015, after it successfully cleared all safety tests prescribed by Automotive Research Association of India (ARAI).
