Customised Mahindra Thar 6x6: Modification cost? Where to buy? Know here1 min read . Updated: 13 Apr 2020, 03:03 PM IST
- This customisation firm's out of the box approach has successfully turned a simple Mahindra Thar into an outlandish offroader.
Apart from being an affordable off-road machine, the Mahindra Thar has also made its name for being a very modification friendly SUV. Its hard-core ADV looks thanks to the design elements such as flat-bonnet, circular headlamps, side-hinged rear door and flared-up wheel arches give it a muscular appeal. Moreover, Mahindra is also planning on to introduce the second-gen model very soon which will look even more intimidating than the current-gen Thar.
While you must have seen some very extreme mod-jobs done on the Thar in the past. But this 'Thar 6x6' made by a Punjab based modification house named 'SD Offroaders' is as wild as it gets.
The customisation firm's out of the box approach has successfully turned a simple Mahindra Thar into an outlandish off-roader.
HT Auto personally reached out to the firm to get answers to all the questions about this mod-job.
Is it really a 6x6?
The 6x6 in its name is just to make it sound exciting and it is basically a 4x6 vehicle, the rear-axle is added only for the support of the rear two wheels. The torque is delivered to the front four wheels, and the rear set-up is merely a carriage. It is the most common form of drivetrain for semi-tractors and heavy haul fixed-chassis cargo trucks.
Is it legal to drive on the road?
No, until you have the RTO's permission.
How much does it costs to get one?
If you already have a Thar in your garage and want the exact same replica of this. You'll have to shell out close to ₹9 lakh to ₹10 lakh. On the other hand, if you don't have a vehicle to give for customisation, the specific unit seen in the pictures will costs you around ₹14 lakh.
How much time does it takes to build one?
Depending up on the requirement, it take around 2-3 months.
What else will you get along with an extended body?
For starters, the cabin will get a complete makeover in-sync with the exterior paint scheme. Apart from this, the stock tyres would be replaced with adventure knobby set of tyres shod-on to the extreme looking alloys.
Is there any engine modification?
No, there is no other mechanical update done on the SUV and the engine remains untouched.
