Entering season four of the T1 PRIMA TRUCK Racing Championship and in keeping true to its commitment of introducing first-of-its-kind initiatives as leaders in the Indian commercial vehicles space, Tata Motors will showcase a 1000 bhp T1 Prima race truck in Season four of the championship.

With over double the power in comparison to the T1 race trucks competing in season four, the all-new 1000 bhp T1 Prima race truck will further add exciting dimensions of speed and character to T1. Similar to race trucks that compete under the broad umbrella of the FIA in the United Kingdom and Europe, the all-new 1000 bhp T1 race truck is a perfect example of the capability and flexibility of Tata Motors next-generation World Truck, the Tata Prima.

The engine of the all-new 1000 bhp T1 race truck is being developed in collaboration with Cummins Inc. of the US, a world leader in diesel engines, enabling Tata Motors to not only set new benchmarks in T1 and the sport of truck racing, but in the Indian commercial vehicles space. The new T1 race truck is the most powerful truck built in India by far.

Developed to deliver unmatched power and acceleration of 0-160 km/hour within 10 seconds and a torque of 3500 Nm @ 1600 – 2200 rpm, the new T1 race truck is based on a 12 litre ISGe Cummins engine, mounted in the center of the chassis for equal weight distribution, with enhanced fuel delivery and air flow, producing 1040 HP at 2600 rpm.

The power is managed by an all-new ZF 16-speed gear box, making it fastest race truck developed by Tata Motors. With high performance rotating parts made of special materials, the engine is meant to withstand high temperature and pressure that a race truck is subject to on a race track.

Speaking at the occasion, Ravindra Pisharody, Executive Director – Commercial Vehicles, Tata Motors, said, “Speaking at the occasion, Ravindra Pisharody, Executive Director, Commercial Vehicles, Tata Motors, said, “After having hosted three successive T1 seasons, we at Tata Motors are happy to announce our next big innovation in the form of the 1000 bhp T1 Prima race truck.
