Indian coachbuilder DC Design has unveiled the tiny Tia two-seater this week at Auto Expo in New Delhi, India.

DC Design was founded by former General Motors designer Dilip Chhabria and these days in New Delhi they are showcasing a petite two-seater roadster measuring 2550mm in length, 1688mm in width and 1406mm in height, while the wheelbase spans at 1620mm. It features a 200mm ground clearance and tips the scales at a rather hefty 950 kg (2,094 lbs).

Power comes from a mid-mounted turbocharged 1.2-liter gasoline engine producing 120 bhp (89 kW) and 190 Nm (140 lb-ft) sent to the rear axle through a 4-speed automatic transmission. It will run the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) sprint in a fairly decent 9 seconds before topping out at 100 mph (160 km/h).

The DC Design Tia benefits from McPherson front struts and a rear trailing arm suspension and uses a carbon composite spaceframe chassis taken from the Avanti. It sits on beefy 18-inch alloy wheels with stopping power coming from disc brakes on all four corners. The two-seater adopts a truncated windscreen similar to the one you will find on a motorcycle while at the back it has LED taillights.

Production will commence later this year and starting price will be the equivalent of around 28,700 USD.
