Tata revealed the most powerful variant of the Altroz a few days ago. Called as the Altroz iTURBO, the price of the vehicle will be announced on 22nd January. Tata tied up with Jayem Automobiles a few years ago to launch the more powerful and performance variants of its cars. Known as the JTP variants, Tata launched the Tiago JTP and the Tigor JTP in the Indian market. However, Tata and Jayem Automotives parted ways for various reasons and there is no other car in the pipeline that will carry the “JTP” nametag. But what if the JTP models were still alive? Would we have got a JTP version of the Altroz iTURBO? Well, here is a rendering image that shows what the high-performance Altroz JTP would have looked like in real life.
This rendering image is made by Yash Upadhyay and is purely imaginative. There is no chance that such a model or variant of the Tata Altroz will be launched in the future. This is an artist’s imaginative version, which is why it looks so extreme.
Tata Altroz JTP rendering
Well, the artist has worked on the stock image of the Altroz but the final product is so altered that it does not resemble the original model anymore. The vehicle gets elements from the racing cars including an oversized rear spoiler. A road-going car will never have such a big spoiler in its rear. The car also gets a wide body kit including flared wheel arches that are at least a foot wider. The low profile performance tyres look quite interesting. Also, the rendering image gets a five-spoke alloy wheel design with red coloured brake callipers.
The front of the car gets aftermarket bumper with an integrated spoiler. here are a lot of other changes too. The hood gets straight pipe exhaust that sure will make it sound like a machine gun. However, the Altroz iTURBO gets only a three-cylinder engine and the image seen here of a V8. The artists have also changed the front grille with a sleeker version and had added a light bar on the top of the grille. The whole front-end seems to be carbon fibre.
There are quite a few changes done to the rear of the car too. Starting with a customised bumper, customised tail lamps and more such features, it does look quite interesting. If someone takes inspiration and makes a real-life copy of this rendering image, it would not be a road-legal vehicle.
Tata will launch the most powerful version of the iTURBO on 22nd January. The new car will get powered by a 1.2-litre turbocharged petrol engine that is also available with the Tata Nexon. In Altroz iTURBO, the same engine produces a maximum power of 110 PS and peak torque of 140 Nm. Tata will only offer a five-speed manual transmission with the Altroz iTURBO. However, at a later stage, they may offer a 7-speed DCT automatic. Tata does not offer an automatic transmission with the Altroz yet whereas all the vehicles in the segment like the Baleno and the i20 offer it.
