DC Design has introduced a special edition of the DC Avanti that comes with both visual and mechanical upgrades.

Billed as being the first sportscar from India, the DC Avanti is now available in a higher specification with a more powerful engine. The engineers fiddled around with the Renault-sourced 2.0-liter engine and bumped output from 250 hp (186 kW) to 310 hp (231 kW). The motor is mated as standard to a six-speed manual gearbox, but it can also be had with an optional six-speed automated manual developed in-house.

Matching the stronger internals is a more aggressive body that among others includes a carbon fiber front splitter, sill extensions, and rear diffuser. There’s also a rear wing made from the same lightweight yet sturdy material. DC Design has also worked on the suspension and brought the car closer to the road by 0.7 inches (20 mm), so the ground clearance now stands at 5.9 inches (150 mm).

Other novelties include stiffer anti-roll bars and a choice of three fresh color combos: matte grey & orange, grey & green, and white & blue. Photos of the interior cabin are not available at this point, but DC Design says there are new Alcantara-wrapped sport seats, leather steering wheel, and sportier TFT instrument cluster dials.

The DC Avanti 310 special edition is scheduled to go on sale in April 2016 and production will be limited to 31 units, each priced from the equivalent of approximately $65,876.
