Poor, poor taste. People like abusing cars that they can buy for cheap.

Spotted this in front of the famous accessory shop near my school (NPS) in Indiranagar.

6 lakh for a boat on wheels? Impossible. One can get 5-6 decent stock Mahindra jeeps for that price.

I guess the owner was going to make in to a "beach buggy" which is very popular in the U.S. as shown in the picture but failed miserably.

@Arkin
Nothing wrong with 6 lacs asking price for this innovative mods. You are getting a boat and 4x4 off-roading machine, isnt it?

It seems so, but I don't think Ajmer has a beach, so his idea is lame . Anyway, he wasted his time, his jeep and his money, and will have to sell it at scrap rates.

You bet!
But Ajmer has dunes.

It is definitely a nice effort except for color, track width and hood design.

Oops, didn't know. I agree he's taken an effort, but asking for Rs 6 lakh is ridiculous. I bet no one will buy it for that much.

This is true-blue weird AND whacky. I was literally dumbstuck. Saw many bad mod-jobs on good cars in this thread and the first emotion that comes to the mind is disgust; but with this one I felt strange. I still cant describe it.

First, the wheels are to die for. Second, why pink? Third, the front looks like a tractor. Fourth, why the plastic. Fifth, why such a poor design of the roof...

I am ranting because this project had SO much potential, if only the designer (as in the guy who visualized this buggy) had a bit more creativity. <Sigh> So much money and effort spent and the worst part is, the mod-job in itself isn't so bad either.

Maybe. At 1st I thought it was a Tata Mobile (407).
And that's the old gen Maruti 800/Zen OVRM I can see.
