Tata Motors, India’s largest automobile company, had something very special to show at the Geneva International Motor Show in Switzerland this year. Under its new sub-brand TaMo, Tata Motors unveiled a stunning two-seater sports coupe – TaMo RaceMo. It is India’s first globally developed ‘phygital’ car, one that merges the physical and digital worlds.
In terms of design, performance or technology, the Racemo is quite unlike anything that we’ve seen from the production line of Tata Motors. It is a clear indication of the change that is taking place at Tata Motors, and showcases its manufacturing prowess.
The Racemo is basically a two-seat, mid-engine sports car and was designed at the Tata Motors’ studio in Turin, Italy. It is also India’s first connected car, built in collaboration with Microsoft. Expect features like advanced navigation, predictive maintenance, remote monitoring and over-the-air updates based on Microsoft cloud-based technologies.
The car is built on a patented MOFlex Multi-Material Sandwich (MMS) structure. This structural technology enables greater freedom in surface design, efficient large-scale part integration, leading to modularity and faster time to market. It is powered by a 1.2 liter Revotron turbo-charged petrol engine and can do 0-100 km/hr in just 6 seconds.
With its aerodynamics, disc brakes, sleek LED lights, flared fenders, butterfly doors, and neat creases that fold into where the modular parts meet, expect the car to wow you when it comes to the design and styling too. Check out India’s very own supercar in the video below.
