We saw the official teaser of this peculiar little car a few weeks ago, but now Tata has revealed its first sportscar, the Racemo, in concept form.

The new model is the first product from the Indian automaker’s Tamo experimental sub-brand.

The Racemo employs a 1,2-litre Revotron engine boosted to deliver 138 kW and 210 N.m to the rear wheels through a six-speed automated manual transmission.

This, together with a low overall mass thanks to Tata's new MOFlex multi-material sandwich structure, means that the Racemo can apparently accelerate from 0-100 km/h in less than 6,0 seconds.

Tata says there will be both a road-going Racemo and a track-focused Racemo+ variant. Both will use the same dynamic design, which appears to draw some comparison from the BMW i8 (including those butterfly doors).

Those who own Forza Horizon 3 will have the chance to experience the Racemo first hand in the virtual sense as a free addition to the game. This comes as a result of the recently announced partnership between Tata and Microsoft.
