Forza Horizon 3: Race More

There is an unusual sportscar I got in Forza Horizon 3 and because this car is very unusual in the eyes of many, one clue pointing out to this mysteriously new sportscar is...well, let's just say that it's Indian.

So, I wonder what is this Indian sportscar everyone's talking about?

This Indian sportscar in question is none other than the brand-new TAMO RaceMo, India's newest sportscar made by TATA Motors, one of the largest car companies in India and the one that controls over Jaguar Land Rover, in case if you're into automotive history here.

The TAMO Racemo is simple to explain; it made a world premiere at the Geneva International Motor Show and as part of a collaboration with Microsoft and Turn 10 Studios, players got their hands on the Racemo free of charge by obtaining it from the message center. As Tata's entry to the sportscar market, the Racemo is a mid-engined rear-wheel drive two-seater that is smaller than today's Mazda Roadster ND while drawing inspiration from European sportscars. It's powered by a 1.2L turbocharged three-cylinder Revotron engine that produces 188HP of power while coupled with a 6-speed AT and thanks to its extensive use of composite and aluminum construction components, its power-to-weight ratio is beyond a shadow of a doubt. Exclusivity aside, it will be limited to 250 vehicles.

I got to say that while this is very exclusive for a very small sportscar, I started to think that I have underestimated the Indians when it comes to their economic status and I admired their tenacity to work and compete with developed countries from Europe, Asia, and the Americas. For a sportscar like the Racemo, this pint-sized cub can really outsmart against the world's best and it can slip out by surprise, knowing that a car made by Indians are not to be taken very seriously in a game of cat and mouse. I agree that while this is not the most powerful sportscar ever made, its small size car is worth a while in a war of Davids and Goliaths where size matters when it comes to becoming slippery through the bends. This is what makes the Racemo special because this car was made to "race more".

Speaking of "race more", let's make it special by booking one with a race against well-known sportscars but sadly, the only one available for booking is the Maroondah Reservoir Trail and it's packed with dirt no sportscar ever survived but on a lighter note, this is going to be like the hero of The Jungle Book. Racemo, do your thing!

Not exactly like The Jungle Book but this Indian sportscar has the heart of the world-class performer and I think it got what it takes to take on the established ones on the road because while this car is made by the Indians, the Racemo is a serious performer in the world of sportscar and it's something that should not be underestimated.
