Isn't it the most badass modified Mahindra Bolero ever? Take a look at it here and decide.
Mahindra Bolero is the oldest product form Mahindra that is still on sale. It was launched for the first time in the year 2000. This boxy SUV is the first choice of wheels in a rural environment. Thanks to the rugged styling, strong chassis, capable suspension, and torquey engine, Mahindra Bolero has been one of the best-selling UV of the country. While the SUV is targeted at the rural environment, it is often praised by enthusiasts for its off-roading credentials. Also, a lot of them can be seen modified to look completely different. Here’s one, which looks badass in all aspects. It is larger than all the Boleros that we’ve seen till date.
This modified Mahindra Bolero belongs to Joe Nongrum, who hails from Meghalaya. Talking of the modifications, it now gets a mean-looking front end, courtesy of a custom radiator grille, headlamp assembly, and bonnet. The headlamps now feature projector setup along with circular LED DRLs. Also, the bumper gets a winch to pull it out of a tricky situation. A 51-inch LED lightbar is also fixed on the roof.
On the sides, it now sits on a set of 15-inch steelies that are shod with 31-inch MT rubber. To accommodate these beefy tyres, it gets a 6-inch lift kit. Furthermore, the front and rear fenders are custom ones and feature a black paint scheme in contrast to the car’s bright red paint. On the rear, it now gets Jeep Wrangler style LED tail lamps.
Talking of the powertrain, it has been upgraded as well. Powering this beast is the 2.6L chain-drive oil burner unit, which comes from Scorpio. This turbocharged unit in its stock avatar belts out a peak power output of 116 PS and max torque of 277 Nm. It comes mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox, which filters the power to all-4 wheels of the car via low-range transfer case. However, it gets a custom T8 exhaust system here, which gives it a bassy exhaust note. But, if there’s any bump in the power output, it is not yet known.
