The Tata Racemo features a lot for a compact Indian sportscar. The Tamo racemo is a sub-4-meter 2-seater with a rear-mid-mounted engine. Tata's Tamo division has put a lot of thought into the development of the car and these are the top features of the Tata Tamo Racemo.
Tata Tamo Racemo Exterior Design
Tata has designed and developed the Tata Tamo Racemo at the Tata Motors Design Studio in Turin, Italy. Tata's MOFlex multi-material sandwich structure makes up the frame of the Racemo. The lightweight Tamo Racemo also features a pair of butterfly doors to add a little drama.
While the regular Tata sportscar is finished in red, the electric variant, the Tamo Racemo +- comes in a blue theme all-around. The Tata Tamo Racemo's design has also won the prestigious German Design Award 2018.
The rear of the the Tamo Racemo features a unique exhaust layout, seen only in high-end supercars. Meanwhile, the Racemo+- gets that section closed.
Tata Tamo Racemo Interior Design
The interiors of both the Racemo and the Racemo+- feature instrument consoles in the form of three screens. The dashboard features a driver-centric layout, with contrast detailing (red for the Racemo and blue for the Racemo+-).
The Tata Tamo Racemo also comes with paddle shifts, and an engine-start/stop button on the steering wheel. Switchgears on the central console is also a cool addition.
The dashboard and the seats feature alcantara trims, which is kind of a norm for all sportscars of today. The white panels have been carried inside, and blends well with the other interior features of the Tata Tamo Racemo.
Tata Tamo Racemo Powertrain Features
The regular Tamo Racemo is powered by 1.2-litre turbocharged 3-cylinder engine (same as in the Tata Nexon petrol, but retuned), which produces 186bhp @ 6500rpm and 210Nm @ 2500rpm. This comes mated to a 6-speed AMT, controllable by paddle-shifts.
The Tata Tamo Racemo+- features an electric motor capable of putting out 202bhp, and a Li-ion battery pack. The Racemo+- has a claimed range of 350kms, and has also got fast charging.
Tata Tamo Racemo Safety Features
The Tamo Racemo and the Racemo+- features enough in the safety front with disc brakes on all four wheels, along with ABS+EBD. The Racemo also gets dual airbags and an optional 4-point harness.
Other Tata Tamo Racemo Features
The modified version of the Tata Tamo Racemo, the Racemo+, is eatured in the popular racing game, Forza Horizon. The Tamo Racemo is the first Indian car to be featured in the Forza series. The Racemo and the Racemo+- also feature a lot of connectivity options, developed in partnership with Microsoft.
At a kerb weight of just 800kg, the Tamo Racemo is a nimble sportscar and can sprint from zero to 100km/h in around 6 seconds. The Racemo and the Racemo+- feature a ground clearance of 165mm, and stretches to just 3835mm.
Thoughts On The Tata Tamo Racemo Top Features
The Tata Tamo Racemo hit all headlines when it was first unveiled at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show. The idea of a nimble sportscar developed for the Indian road conditions is something that deserves much praise.
Tata had earlier shelved the Tamo Racemo project to invest more in the commercial segment. But the showcase of the Tamo Racemo and the Racemo+- at the Auto Expo 2018 could mean that Tata might be considering a launch in the not-too-distant future.
