Since the 2010 Mahindra Thar’s debut, there has been no shortage of aftermarket companies dressing up the Jeep-inspired model. While DC Design has its own extensive list of kit for the Thar, other specialists include BigDaddyCustoms and Jeep Clinic. Now, Mahindra’s official Customization Division has gotten in on it too.
The Mahindra Customisation has decked the tough looking Thar with a matte grey paint job with red highlights, LED-powered rings inside the headlamps, auxiliary lights upfront, blacked-out front grille, an air scoop on the bonnet, raised wheel arches, side fenders, modified doors, high mounted dual-chrome exhausts and LED tail-lights.
Furthermore, the Thar receives 37” Maxxis Trepador tyres, factory-fitted heavy duty winch attached to a set of Stinger Bumpers, offering more protection to the car’s radiators and snorkel. Step Inside, customization options include creature comforts like a touch-screen infotainment system which also works as reverse parking camera with dual-tone theme, four waterproof speakers and Sparco rally seats.
The changes are purely cosmetic, while the power-train will remain identical to the standard Thar to avoid constraints with registration and insurance processes. It continues to be powered by a 2.5-litre engine offering 105 bhp power at 3,800 rpm and 247 Nm torque between 1,800-2,000 rpm mated to a 5 speed manual transmission.
This transformation is promised to the buyer within a period two months. It will cost you Rs. 9.6 lakh plus the cost of the donor vehicle, old or new and Rs. 1.5 lakh additional if you opt for a hard top version. And if you buy a brand new Thar Daybreak Edition, it will fetch you more than Rs. 19 lakh, ex-showroom.
