Take a look at this modified example of the all-new Mahindra Thar which gets the first set of accessories from the Bimbra 4x4.
Modified examples of the all-new Mahindra Thar have started showing up across various social media platforms. However, the modifications performed on these examples are not extensive by any means. But, folks from Bimbra 4x4 have finally released their first batch of aftermarket accessories that new-gen Thar owners can get their hands on. The images of a prepped-up Thar were recently shared on a social media platform by Mr Taran Bimbra, owner of Bimbra 4x4.
In the images, the new-gen Thar can be seen donning a lot of accessories, and it for sure looks barbaric. The plastic front bumper is now replaced with a metal one. Also, it gets a metal skid plate to keep the radiator safe in case the off-roader manages to lick some dirt while tackling tricky obstacles. The most anticipated of all the accessories for the new-gen Thar was a Jeep Wrangler grille. Interestingly, Bimbra 4x4 guys have managed to make one, which seems like a direct lift from the newest JL series of Wrangler.
On the inside, it gets a set of armrests for the rear seats. Right above the rear wheel wells, the Thar had some empty space which the tuner has intelligently used to fix armrests. These armrests also have two cup holders and some storage space. All of these modifications are warranty-friendly, as it doesn’t require drilling any extra hole to fix any of these parts. The metal bumper, however, hasn’t been tested for airbag compatibility yet, but the tuner has confirmed of rolling-out airbag-compatible units in the market soon.
The new-gen Thar is offered with two engine options – 2.0L mStallion turbo-petrol motor and 2.2L mHawk turbo-diesel engine. The petrol unit is capable of dishing out a peak power output of 150 Hp and max torque of 320 Nm. The diesel engine, on the other hand, is potent at making 130 Hp of peak power output and 300 Nm of max torque. These engines can be had coupled to either a 6-speed MT or a 6-speed torque converter automatic. The all-new Thar is offered in a 4x4 configuration only and comes standard with a low-ratio transfer case and mechanically-locking rear differential. The availability of brake-locking front axle, however, is limited to the range-topping LX trim only.
