A six-speed manual gearbox comes as standard on the car. 20-inch wheels with 255/35 tyres mounted on the front, and 295/30 tyres are used on the rear. 330mm ventilated four-caliper disc brakes are used at the front and 295mm ones at the rear. Anti-lock braking system comes standard on the Avanti. The suspension uses a double wishbone on all four wheels, monotube with gas-charged shock absorbers. It uses coil springs to perform the dampening duties.

The Avanti is really big at a length of 4550mm, 1965mm wide and 1200mm in height. DC has also tried to make the car as usable as possible in India, and has given it a ground clearance of 170mm. The chassis is a box section space frame. The body of the car uses carbonfibre in many parts, which have been crafted in-house, which is placed on top of the chassis.

As for the interiors, the Avanti gets a three-spoke steering wheel, hooded dials, a centre console with stacked screens, chrome surrounds and body colored separators. It also comes with a touchscreen infotainment system and soft touch buttons for the air-conditioning system. The final car is expected to come with a digital instrument panel, and few new bits on the centre console too.
