Lada Granta TC1 Introduced for 2014 WTCC

Lada has recently introduced the new Granta TC1, which will compete in this year’s World Touring Car Championship (WTCC).

Russian based carmaker Lada is no stranger to the WTCC as the company has entered this competition back in 2008 with two models and for some reason, the 2014th edition of the WTCC will see the Granta TC1. The model in question has been prepared by Lada and it will be driven by Rob Huff, who has won the WTCC back in 2012, by Mikhail Kozlovskiy and by James Thompson, who has finished fifth in Russia last year.

According to the car manufacturer, the Lada Granta TC1 is actually 50 kg (100 lbs) lighter than its predecessor, weighing in at 1,150 kg (2,535 lbs). The racer is wearing a very aggressive and wide body kit, with some updated aerodynamics, revised wheel arches, different rear wing and some other tweaks. The vehicle is sitting on 18-inch alloy wheels and it’s taking its power from a 1.6 liter four-cylinder turbocharged gasoline burner, which is producing approximately 380 HP (283 kW). Some of Lada’s competitors for this year are the Honda Civic WTCC and the Citroen C-Elysee WTCC, while for next year, the carmaker has announced a new car.
