M&M is on a spree to Oust DC out of business, rumour is DC spoiled Anand's Car!!!! So BADLAA!!

What else can be on M&M's minds. India is the only place people think BLING sells, even here it is a bit too far!! This wont even sell as paper weights in the WEST.

M&M- Please redo the PEEP!!

PS - The 5 Yokos and 4 Recaro Seats and the winch and bling ROLL cage alone will cost upwards of 1.5LAKHS!!. Kiss Goodbye to the 5-6Lakhs price range...

Guys who waited for this, please book your MAJOR's ASAP

Lol, to be frank, the image of a jeep taken from another thread in the forum looks much better IMO

Default Thar Concept - a BIG disappointment

What a let down! This is a fine example of what not to do with your jeep ...

Just goes to show how much does M&M understand their Customer.

Floored, Yes. But it won't be for the reasons you think.
Well, can't say you guys weren't warned.

Anyway, forget all the bling bling, I am pretty sure none of them will make it to the production version.

So the MM540 4WD Wishlist thread turned out to be a total waste! Now there will be more waiting as what M&M Will really bring into production.
Gypsy & Major still the best choice for offroading.

Well M&M Could have really showcased the simple Bologna Thar or the one shown in Scoop pics.
Looks like they are adding all the remaining unsold plastic shapes, which are left in Customizing Dept, to thier CONCEPTS. & look @ the inetriors..
atleat we can see a solid axle up-front & alloys are really nice

Atleat they could have designed their own Wrangler like Jeep to be called as concept

Guys, this is the car done by the Mahindra Customizations dept. These are all "ADDONS". The real car does not look like this!

Default Mahindra Thar Adventure

All,
I got the opportunity to Visit Mahindra stall on very first day of Auto Expo, they had "Mahindra Thar Adventure" in Left Hand Drive Version. As per Mahindra Officials they do not have any plans in near future to launch Thar in India. this vehicle had 2497cc Crde engine with independent front suspension (taken from Scorpio). This vehicle has AC.
Interesting Conversation:
Me: This Vehicle was supposedly launch in India?
Mahindra Official: No sir.
Me: But i have seen Thar during trial run in Pune?
M O: Are you from Team-BHP?
Me: Yes. How come you know?
M O: Smiled mysteriously

Behram Saheb: You guys are really taking this thread seriously.

Rest: there was nothing exciting in Auto Expo for 4x4 lovers. I was very dissapointed.

Regards,
Shubhendra Singh
