Bolero is one of the oldest models from Mahindra that is still available on sale. Over the years, Mahindra has made several cosmetic changes to the car to meet the emission and safety norms. Mahindra Thar is still one of the popular utilitarian vehicle and is popular among customers from both rural and urban market. There are several modification options available for Bolero and we have featured some of them on our website. One of the most common type of modification that we have seen on Bolero is converting or modifying a Bolero to look like a Mercedes-Benz G-Wagen. Here we have one such modified Mahindra Bolero that is available for sale.

The Bolero has been completely transformed into a Mercdes-Benz. There are several garages and workshop who do such modification works and we have featured many of them in the past.
