Designer Dilip Chabbria's Avanti launched at Auto Expo powered by Ford's EcoBoost engine

Revealed at the 2012 Delhi Auto Expo, the DC Design Avanti seems to carry styling influences from the Ferrari 458 Italia and even the most recent Lotus concepts. While its shape may be derivative of other cars, the new Avanti carries its own sense of style.While a V-6 variant with an expected 400 horsepower will come later, initial DC Design Avantis will be powered by a 2.0-liter Ford EcoBoost engine, which is expected to produce around 265 horsepower. Both engines will be mated to a six-speed, dual clutch transmission.

DC will be readying the Avanti for a production run beginning in 2013. The Indian Bollywood actor Amitabh Bachchan revealed the stunning vehicle to a round of loud applause from reporters in the jam-packed hall.
