Mahindra had launched many popular SUVs in the past and one such vehicle was the Mahindra Invader. It was a three door SUV that was offered with a soft top for the rear. It was discontinued due to low demand but some enthusiasts had already bought Invader and still maintain it. Most of them have modified it to make it look more rugged and off-friendly and it was even used by some state police forces as well. Here we have a video that shows an extreme modification for the Mahindra Invader.
The video has been uploaded by Weekend On Wheels #Wow on his youtube channel. The video shows a fully modified Mahindra Invader which is ready to tackle almost any off-road situation. Starting with the exteriors, it gets custom mustard yellow paint job which looks good on the car. The headlamps and front grilles are stock units but, it gets a custom made off-road bumper at the front which gives it a butch look.
In the centre, there are two auxiliary lamps and LED fog lamps are also installed below it. The custom bumper is also installed with LED DRLs, and LED turn indicator on it. The stock bumper has been completely removed increasing the approach and departure angle. Side profile of the car reveals chunky looking 35 inch tyres and the car has been lifted by 8-9 inches. The suspension duties are now taken care by units from Ironman. It also gets a long LED bar on the roof and snorkel can also be seen in the video.
The wheel arches have also been modified and the whole body of the car gets an exoskeleton that protects the car and occupants if it tips over. The rear of the car also gets an off-road bumper along with aftermarket LED tail lights and tailgate mounted spare wheel. It also gets powered side steps that come out when the door is opened.
On the inside, the whole car gets an all-black treatment, it is a 4×4 unit and the dashboard is kept all basic. It gets a simple touchscreen infotainment screen, speakers and woofers at the rear and front facing seats for the rear passenger. The engine on this Invader has been replaced with a Scorpio DI turbo diesel engine and the air filter has been replaced with K&N unit. Overall, this modified Mahindra Invader looks simple but gorgeous.
