The Mahindra Thar has been a hot favorite among the car customizers of our country. Its bold stance, simple construction, and straight lines go a long way in enabling a car customizer effortlessly work his magic. While we’ve seen a handful of modified Mahindra Thars in recent times, this one takes the cake. Dubbed as ‘Adventure One’, this Thar carries several styling updates that make it look sufficiently rugged whilst maintaining an upmarket look. While this is the oldest customized Thar in the Mahindra Adventures fleet, it has just got a new lease of life through a set of new styling updates.
This Thar gets a silver paint scheme. Its front-end is characterized by an updated bumper, new projector headlamps with LED DRLs and LED strips that replace the front indicators. There is a spotlight mounted just below the front windscreen. There’s also a huge antenna mounted on the bumper. The nose will also get a power winch soon.
In the side profile, this modified Mahindra Thar gets a set of white-painted alloy wheels that are shod with Maxxis M/T tires. The wheel arches get a plastic cladding and the wing mirrors look a lot like the ones on the Jeep Wrangler. The Adventure One gets a hard top and a covered loading bay. There’s also a rear windscreen incorporated into the new hardtop. At the rear, this modified Mahindra Thar gets a railing grid, new taillamps, a pair of spotlamps, a new frame to hold the spare wheel, and an updated bumper. There’s also a tow hook. Details of the interior aren’t known at the moment. However, from whatever can be made out from these images, it’s clearly evident that this Thar has got an upholstery change.
It’s also not known if this modified Thar carries any performance upgrades. In its regular avatar, the Thar is powered by a 2.5-liter, four-cylinder, turbocharged Diesel engine that outputs a maximum power of 105 bhp along with a peak torque of 247 Nm. The engine comes mated to a five-speed manual transmission that can send power to all the four wheels through the 4×4 hardware.
