This Maruti Gypsy gets a retro look with light blue colour scheme. Check out the full details of this beautifully-customized vehicle.
Maruti Gypsy is an iconic off-roader in the Indian automotive market. The legendary off-roader was launched in 1985. In the beginning, the vehicle was powered by a 1.0-litre F10A engine. This engine was later replaced by a G13BA engine and then the 1.3-litre G13BB engine. On the global market, the car is known as the Suzuki Jimny. Due to the implementation of the new BSVI emission norms, the Maruti Gyspy was discontinued in the Indian market. Even though the production of this vehicle for citizens has come to an end, the Maruti Gypsy still remains to a special car on Indian car enthusiasts’ heart. Apparently, the multiple modifications of this model emerge every now and then. Here is another modified unit of the Maruti Gypsy.
Retro-looking Modified Maruti Gypsy
Unlike other modified off-roaders, this unit has a very special styling which combines the modern design with retro inspiration. Named Gypsy Scout, this Maruti Gypsy is customized by Delhi-based AGM Technology custom garage. On the front end, the stock grille is replaced by an aftermarket unit with extensive plastic cladding. It is also replaced by a new rugged bumper with integrated foglight. The revised front end keeps the similar square-ish styling featured on the original design.
To the side profile, the custom garage has done some substantial changes. For example, the silhouette of this Maruti Gypsy is modified. The C pillar is removed to make way for a flatbed trunk space at the back, which means that the owner has to sacrifice the boot space. This car now features blacked-out alloy wheels with Yokohama tyres. On the rear end, it is added with a new bumper, LED taillight and LED indicators. In addition, the modified car manages to keep the spare wheel mounted at the rear end despite the comprehensive updates. This Maruti Gypsy is repainted in blue while the roof receives a contrasting white roof.
This Maruti Gypsy is comprehensively updated in terms of exterior design
On the inside, the dashboard receives some small adjustments. There are new AC vents, a small clock, a new stereo system and segmented sunroof. To make the driving experience easier and more effortless, the AGM team has fitted the frugal original car with power brakes, power window, and power ORVMs. The rest of the design including instrument console, steering wheels and gearbox, for example, remains unchanged. Apart from the cosmetic updates, the Maruti Gypsy has seen no update to the engine and transmission.
According to the owner, this customisation project costs around Rs 7 lakh. Considering how comprehensive and good-looking it turns out to be, the budget is totally well-spent.
Back to the Maruti Gypsy, while the India-spec model has been discontinued, the international-spec Suzuki Jimny is still going strong. It is currently in its fourth generation. Since its launch in the Japanese market in 2018, there are speculations around the Indian launch. However, until now, this much-anticipated vehicle is still yet confirmed to enter our market yet.
