Tata Tamo Racemo Sportscar Finally Unveiled
Using one of the most prestigious platforms for unveiling the first product under its new sub-brand, TAMO, Tata Motors revealed the Tamo Racemo sports coupe (internally named Futuro) on the opening day of the 2017 Geneva Motor Show. The company introduced its new sub-brand, TAMO early last month and teased the Tamo Racemo sports coupe, while it chose to unravel details at the Geneva motoring show, that witnesses debut of several concepts, production ready models and supercars every year.
Being referred as India’s first connected car, Racemo is co-developed with Microsoft and will benefit from 186bhp 1.2-litre turbocharged and intercooled Revotron engine good for 210Nm of torque. It will use a 6-speed AMT gearbox with paddle shifters for transmitting power and will also feature a push button reverse. Aiming to act as an incubating centre for the new technology, TAMO will function as the new mobility solutions body for development of new technologies and business models. Besides, TAMO will look at potential partnerships with global start-ups for innovative tech solutions, services and future products.
The first model to roll out under TAMO will be Racemo sports car, which was revealed in concept form today in Geneva. Primarily a mid-engined, two-seat sports coupe, Racemo is designed at Tata’s studio in Turin and Italy. From the looks of it, the car takes design inspiration from a race-car and blends in some cues from Tata’s IMPACT design language. Tata will also debut its new connected car technology, to be developed under TAMO with the sports car.
Working aggressively to propel into a global car leader, Tata Motors brought Aria Sports car concept to the Geneva Motor Show back in 2000. Although, the Aria sports car concept could never hit production, the nameplate was instead used for the crossover. Hopefully, Racemo will bring glory to the home-grown automaker.
