9 OFFICIAL Mahindra-modified Thars you can buy!

Like we’ve been saying, the car modification scene in India is finally coming of age. Today, we have some really skilled car customizers who can work magic on any mainstream product. Moreover, even the manufacturers have started offering several custom kits to help their customers with providing a unique identity to their vehicles. Mahindra & Mahindra, for example, offers some really cool modifications for the Thar. Here’s a look at them –

Mahindra Thar Daybreak

The Thar Daybreak made its debut at the Auto Expo 2016. Back at the motor show, it awed show-goers with a really macho look that combined the classic appeal of the Thar with slightly modern styling elements. The Daybreak is available in two versions – Soft-top and Hardtop. Here’s a look at both-

Thar Daybreak Soft-top

The Thar Daybreak Soft-top gets several updates that make it much more attractive. The front-end gets a custom bumper and a winch. The headlamps carry stylish LED Daytime Running Lamps. The hood comes with a huge scoop. The doors have been given a complete re-design and the pillar-less units look much cooler than the ones on the regular Thar. The Daybreak has also been given fatter tires.

Thar Daybreak Hardtop

Mahindra also sells a hardtop version of the Thar Daybreak. Other than the hardtop, there’s little to differentiate it from the soft-top sibling. The inclusion of the Hardtop makes this Thar far more practical for regular use. The weatherproof top enables the owners to use this macho-looking Thar even in rough weather conditions.

Mahindra Thar Wanderlust

Mahindra and Mahindra previewed the Thar Wanderlust at the Auto Expo 2018. The Wanderlust is a slightly wilder version of the Daybreak. It gets some similar styling elements but the highlights here are the gullwing doors for the rear. The Wanderlust comes finished in electric blue paint and gets a set of really wide tires. The new grille and the custom-made fenders give it a much more attractive look. Akin to the Daybreak, the Wanderlust gets a winch to complete that off-roader appearance.
