India’s best know customization house, DC Design is known for its luxurious takes on the interiors of regular cars. Earlier this year, the design house had showcased the DC Hammer, a luxurious take on the Thar off-roader at Auto Expo 2018. At the Expo, DC Design revealed that the Hammer would be limited to just 300 units. Here’s a look at one with tan leather interiors.
The DC Hammer is a completely redone version of the Thar by DC Design. The Hammer features a completely redone body and interior the latter of two being focused entirely on luxury.
The exterior of the car has been completely redone with a new body featuring a hardtop roof. Up front, there are new projector headlamps and fog lamps. The Mahindra logo has made way for a DC badge and there is also a new front bumper. The front fenders play host to new auxiliary lamps and the bonnet features a scoop running down its centre.
The sides of the Hammer are quite sculpted and muscular. The installation of the hardtop roof is cleanly done and the door hinges along with a few other bits on the sides are done up in chrome. The rims on the Hammer look old school and are offered in both chrome and black. The ORVMS are rather large as well.
The rear end of the DC Hammer features the spare wheel mounted on the centre of the rear door along with a new bumper and taillights. The taillight on the right integrates quite nicely with rear fender with the section immediately behind the lights playing host to the fuel filler cap.
The interior is where the DC Hammer shown on the Instagram page varies from the one seen at Auto Expo. Instead of the maroonish-red colour seen on the Expo Hammer, the interiors of the latest iteration of the off-roader are done u in faux tan leather, which looks quite classy. The top section of the dash and the doors are done up in in a slightly orange colour which gives them a dual tone-look.
The leather on the seats and the doors feature a diamond pattern which looks rather cool. There are also quite a few chrome elements all over the dash including on the air-con vents, dashboard, instrument binnacle and doors. The steering is a tri-tone job with black along most of its circumference, orange at its centre, and faux wood on the top and bottom sections of the wheel.
The faux wood can also be found in the centre section of the dash where the touchscreen display unit for the infotainment system can be found. The hardtop roof of the car features a central spine with what appear to be lights running down them. Also seen on the central spine are cabin lights for each seat set within chrome housings.
The cost for all this opulence that makes up the DC Hammer starts at Rs 5.95 lakhs for the Hammer along with the donor Thar and can go all the way up to Rs 9 lakh. The prices mentioned are pre-tax
