The Tamo Racemo is a new sports car that arrived in Geneva as a rival to the Mazda MX-5.
The model comes from Tata’s sub brand and uses a 190bhp turbocharged petrol engine. Like the MX-5, it has small dimensions and has been designed to offer sporting performance with practical usability.
It is capable of accelerating from 0-62mph in 6sec, making it 1.3sec quicker than the most potent MX-5.
The exterior features scissor doors and an angular exterior design, and is described as Tata’s ‘first connected car’, hinting at its technical features.
Its primary focus is Tata’s native market, but the brand has ambitions to grow its presence in other global regions.
Tata CEO Guenter Butschek said “Our new cars represent our ambitions to go beyond India as we head for the future. India is the most demanding automotive market in the world and if you get India right then you can be successful in the rest of the world.”
The Racemo is expected to be produced in limited numbers, but pricing is yet to be revealed.
