India’s most awaited enthusiast cars are here!
JT Special Vehicles (JTSV), a 50:50 Joint Venture between Tata Motors and Coimbatore based Jayem Automotives, launched the much anticipated JTP performance brand in India by presenting the performance -boosted JTP versions of the popular Tata products, Tiago and Tigor.
Manufactured at at the Tata Motors Sanand facility, both the cars get the JTP reworked versions of 1.2 L Turbocharged Revotron Petrol engines that can let out as much as 114 PS of power and 150 Nm of torque. Both the cars would flaunt multi drive modes to choose from, viz CITY and SPORT. Equipped with uniquely styled parts, these JTPs get a 5 speed manual transmission along with all those performance oriented intake and exhaust systems onboard. Thanks for the fine acceleration and superior performance be to the optimized gear ratios and final drive. The suspension has also been tuned for better handling and driving dynamics and the JTPs sit lower to the ground than their regular counterparts.
The top speed has been regulated to 160 kmph and 0-100 comes in 10 seconds. Impressive, huh?
