The steel rims are real head-turners - do post some info on them & tyres too.
Would love to know more about her under bonnet contents and some info on that skirting, looks pretty neat.

Regards-Sonu

Thanks, Sonu.

The steel rims are popularly known as "off-road steel rims" (-30 offset, 8J, IIRC). I bought them new at Rs. 20k for a set of 5 from a Facebook contact. The tyres are Maxxis Bighorn 762 MTs 235/75-R15, which I bought from the same person at Rs. 7k per tyre.

The colour of the car is the Hyundai's new 'Pristine Blue'. HT was opted due to the practicality appeal, but I had it painted matte black so that it looks a bit understated, yet offers contrast to the car's colour.

Under hood, its absolute stock - except for an upsized radiator. I had the entire engine work done a couple of weeks back.

The "skirting" you enquired about is an OE plastic cladding.

She's beautiful! Loved the second picture.

Like it has been said above, subtlety does it. Overdoing it messes it up.

Insane! But how did they manage to get it registered as a private vehicle? Wouldn't it's payload capacity exceed the passenger load capacity?

And are those earlier gen Fortuner wheels?

There was one under renovation here as well, but no activity on the thread for some time now. http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/4x4-ve...-1-ton-24.html (Nissan 4W73 aka 1 ton)

I have seen this mental Gypsy doing the round around my house, and it sounds dastardly! Hands down, the best sounding modded 4-pot car ever! I'm sure it woke the dead as it flew down the service road next to the Indiranagar-CMH Road cemetery!

Oh man, THAT is a wet dream! Sorry...
What all has happened here, and how much did that end up costing you?
Love it!

Is it equipped with a 7.62 mm machine gun? Your Xenon looks like it belongs to the armed forces!
