Mahindra Thar is one of the most popular 4×4 SUV in the market currently. Mahindra launched it in the market last year and now it has a waiting period of almost an year. Mahindra has improved a lot on the Thar and it is also the most affordable 4×4 SUV one can buy in the market. We have seen several off-roading and modification videos of the all-new Mahindra Thar and here we have a video where the current generation Thar SUV has been modified with a new paint job on the outside and customised interiors.
The video has been uploaded by TURBO XTREME on their YouTube channel. In this video, vlogger shows a completely modified Mahindra Thar. The main modification on this Mahindra Thar is the paint itself. It gets a brown peelable paint on it. Peelable paint is a paint that can be sprayed over the original paint and can be peeled off without damaging the stock colour.
In this Thar, the owner has gone for a sandy brown shade. It is similar to the shade that was seen in RE Classic Desert Storm motorcycle. The new paint job completely changes the look of the SUV and gives it a butch look. Along with this paint job, owner has also made some other changes to the SUV. The stock grille at the front has been replaced for an aftermarket unit.
The SUV also gets aftermarket projector LED headlamps with dual function LED DRLs. The exterior gets a brown and black theme. The bumper remains the same but, it now gets LED fog lamps in them. Coming to the side profile, the stock 18 inch alloy wheels have been replaced for gloss black aftermarket units with chunky tyres. Brake calipers on this Mahindra Thar have been finished in green.
The Mahindra Thar seen in the video is a soft top convertible version. The interiors on this Thar have also been customised. The seats now get premium looking seat covers and an armrest has also been installed at the front for driver. Other than this no major modifications are done to the car.
Mahindra Thar is a proper 4×4 SUV and several videos showing its off-road capabilities are available online. This Mahindra Thar looks entirely different from all others that we have seen so far and that is because of this unique looking peel-able paint.
Mahindra offers decent amount of features with Thar. It gets power windows, multi-function steering wheel, cruise control, touchscreen infotainment screen, roof mounted speakers, front facing seats for rear passengers and so on. Mahindra Thar had also scored 4 star safety rating at Global NCAP crash test. Mahindra offers Thar with both petrol and diesel engine option.
The petrol version seen in the video is powered by a 2.0 litre mStallion turbo petrol engine that generates 150 Bhp and 320 Nm of peak torque. Diesel version is powered by a 2.2 litre mHawk turbo diesel engine that generates 130 Bhp and 320 Nm of peak torque. Both petrol and diesel engine options are available with manual and automatic gearbox options.
