Mahindra Thar inspired autorickshaw grabs attention of netizens, owner’s creativity goes viral

An autorickshaw looking similar to Mahindra Thar after heavy modifications is going viral on social media.

Mahindra Thar is one of the most popular lifestyle SUVs in the country with a massive fan following. Apart from its performance, Mahindra Thar is quite popular for its modifications and it’s highly unlikely for its owner to keep the car stock. Although Mahindra launched a cheaper RWD drive version of Thar at a starting price of Rs 9.99 lakh to cater the masses who aim to buy the SUV at lower price, the Mahindra Thar still relatively costs more than the buying capacity of average Indian. An image of an Autorickshaw modified with Scorpio’s rear end caught attention of netizens and Anand Mahindra a few years ago. Now, an autorickshaw looking similar to Mahindra Thar after heavy modifications is going viral on social media.

An image shared by Twitter user Anirab Roy shows a black coloured autorickshaw that resembles a Mahindra Thar. The front fascia of the vehicle has been completely revamped to look like a car with a grille at the front along with two wheels, headlamps, bumper and bonnet similar to Thar.

The creative owner went overboard with the modifications and also added a spoiler at the rear. The ORVMs and doors have also been replaced to match the theme of the vehicle. It will be interesting to see how Anand Mahindra reacts to this creative modification.

Although the image is now going viral and a few are planning to make similar modifications to their vehicles, it is worth noting that almost all car modifications in India are illegal as per the latest Motor Vehicle Act. Even minor modifications such as auxiliary lights are illegal in India and can land the vehicle owner in jail.
