Take a look at this nicely-maintained Tata Sierra. It is from Sri Lanka and is the cleanest example that we've come across. Read more about it here.

Tata Sierra was the first car from the Indian carmaker. Based on Mercedes-Benz’s T2 platform, it was introduced in the country in 1991. It still enjoys a cult status around the enthusiasts. A lot of restored examples of the Sierra can be seen in mint condition. However, this time around, we came across a Tata Sierra from Sri Lanka, and it is the cleanest example we’ve ever seen. This Sierra belongs to Leon De Silva. With a black paint scheme, it just looks gorgeous. The owner has added some aftermarket bits on the car to make it look even more appealing. Also, there’s hardly any flaw to talk of, which showcases how well-maintained this example is.

The owner of this Sierra has added an aftermarket nudge-guard at the front. A set of auxiliary lamps is also fixed on it. The bumper is tweaked as well, and it now houses LED fog lamps. On the sides, one can see that it now rides on a set of 5-spoke alloy wheels. Furthermore, it gets a snorkel to wade through deep waters. A spoiler is fixed on the rear-end, which accentuates its overall appeal.

The massive ORVMs, however, are now painted in chrome. We are not aware of the changes, if any, have been performed to the interior of this car. Being the very first car from Tata Motors, Sierra was also the first Indian manufactured car to come with features like power windows, adjustable steering, tachometer, and air conditioning.

Powering the Sierra was a Peugeot-sourced 2.0L 4-cylinder diesel engine. It used to belt out a peak power output of 63 horsepower. However, it increased to 87 horsepower in 1998, with the introduction of a mid-cycle update. Talking of the gearbox, the Sierra came with a G-76 5-speed stick-shift unit. A 4WD layout was also a part of the package. With the optional 4WD drivetrain, it came with self-locking rear differential and manually lockable front hubs. Earlier this year, Tata Motors showcased an electrified iteration of the Sierra, which is likely to go on sale by the end of next year.
