Meet Tamo Racemo, Tata’s New Sports Car!
Tata Motors had revealed the first car from its debutante sub-brand, Tamo at this year’s Geneva Motor Show. Who would’ve thought that Racemo, the first vehicle from Tamo, will be a sports car?
The Racemo will certainly make it to showrooms. However, Tata hasn't issued a statement regarding its production prospects, but a market launch could take place early next year.
Speaking of the cars, there will be two versions, namely, Racemo and Racemo+. The former is a road-legal one, while the latter is a track-oriented version. Interestingly, both the cars will be featured on Microsoft’s Forza Horizon 3, making it the first Indian car to be available on this platform! It is also the first car that will use Tata’s new connected tech, which it has developed with Microsoft.
The design looks futuristic and the use of different materials in its construction makes it looks unique. It packs scissor doors and the exhaust tip is placed higher up, just like the Mclaren P1.
The Racemo is based on a new MOFlex platform, which according to Tamo is a MMS structure (multi-material sandwich) and has been used for the first time in a passenger vehicle globally. It is powered by a turbocharged Revotron engine (probably a mid-mounted, rear wheel drive layout), which puts out 190PS of max power at 6500rpm and 210Nm of peak torque at 2500rpm. Tamo has not revealed the engine capacity, but it's likely a low displacement motor. As per the images, the engine is mated to an automatic transmission with paddle shifters. Tamo claims a nought to 100kmph sprint in under 6 seconds!
