Indian giant Tata has unveiled its Racemo sports car concept at the Geneva Motor Show.

Launch in production form is tipped for the Indian Auto Expo early next year.

The first sports car from Tata (launched under its ‘Tamo’ sub-brand) and claimed to be the first production sports car from India, the Racemo delivers 142kW/210Nm from its mid-mounted turbocharged 1.2-litre three-cylinder petrol engine and drives the rear wheels via a six-speed automated manual (AMIT) transmission.

Zero to 100 km/h is claimed to be six seconds.

In terms of dimensions, the Tata Racemo is just a smidge shorter and wider than a Mazda MX-5.

Styling is edgy to say the least with a very aerodynamic look, ‘double-bubble’ roof, centre exhaust and butterfly doors.

There is a track day Racemo+ model with even more vents, a large rear wing and adjustable front splitter plus race seats with safety harnesses - and no airbags.

Inside, the driver is presented with three LCD displays, toggle switches, three-spoke leather steering wheel with F1-style buttons and a very race car-like layout.

Tata says it has plans to build 250 Racemos and while none will venture to Australia, Forza Horizon 3 has a free download so you can test drive one…online.
