One of India’s most renowned automobile designer and founder of DC Design, Dilip Chhabria will showcase a new mid-engined sportscar at the upcoming Auto Expo 2018, in Greater Noida this week. While there will be several concepts at the biennial event, DC Design’s all-new coupe concept, dubbed ‘TCA’ will be the centre of attraction. DC’s new coupe concept will be unveiled on 7th February at hall No 1 at the Auto Expo.

TCA, which stands for titanium, carbon fibre and aluminium ostensibly defines the materials used in the construction of the vehicle. Reports in media suggest the ‘TCA’ will underpin the copiously tweaked platform, used in Avanti. Inferring from that, the concept is expected to be longer and wider than Avanti.
A teaser image of the concept has been released which reveals it will get a cleaner bodywork. Unlike the Avanti, TCA will sport fewer lines and is likely to feature a mix of materials mentioned above. In terms of power, the TCA is likely to use a 4.0-litre V8 engine with 400bhp output against Avanti’s 250bhp, 2.0-litre, four-cylinder unit.
Transmission duties on the TCA will reportedly be handled by a seven-speed torque converter automatic unit which will send power to the rear wheels. With a more powerful engine and lighter materials used in construction, the TCA is expected to surpass Avanti’s top speed of 200km/h and acceleration time of 6 seconds to hit 100km/h from rest. If the new concept hits production, it is expected to be pricier than Avanti.
