Default Tata Racemo @ Auto Expo 2018

Big shoutout to Vid6639 for shooting these pictures & his coverage of the Auto Expo. Thanks for sharing, man!

Tata Motors has displayed the Racemo - its first car under the TAMO brand at the 2018 Auto Expo. The company has also shown an EV version of the sports car.

Racemo was unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2017. Sadly, In July 2017, it was reported that the car will not go into production:

Shame that they aren't planning on launching this anymore

Though a part of me does have hope they will do something with this design, as they converted it to an EV platform.

Yep if Tata launches this around 15 lakhs (doubt it though might be 25 or more )I would be game to buy one for my individual use. It would make an interesting ride.
