Developed by Tata Motors' Tamo division, an "incubating centre of innovation", the Racemo is built upon the new MOFlex Multi-Material Sandwich structure, which Tata says not only enables "greater freedom in surface design" but also has a large degree of "modularity and faster time to market".


The Racemo is powered by a 1.2-litre turbocharged three-cylinder engine with 140kW of power at 6500rpm, and 210Nm of torque at 2500rpm. The mid-mounted motor drives the rear wheels via six-speed automatic transmission.

Tata claims that the Racemo is capable of sprinting from 0-60mph (0-97km/h) in under six seconds.


The Racemo has double wishbone suspension at all four corners. The mid-engine sports car rides on 17-inch wheels up front with 205/50 tyres, and 18-inch wheels at the rear with 235/45 tyres.

Within its stripped back interior, the Racemo has three high-resolution screens directly in front of the driver. The instrumentation, navigation and telemetry systems have a Microsoft-engineered interface and are said to make extensive use of the vehicle's built-in internet connectivity.


Making their debut alongside the Racemo are the Racemo+, a racing version designed to "provide an extreme experience to speed enthusiasts ... via curated track activities", and a digital version of the Racemo+, which can be downloaded and driven within Forza Motorsport 3.
