Default What a Mahindraaaaa !

Hello Folks,

Came across this amazing peace of machine on a visit to my water service workshop . This is one helluva beast in flesh. I have seen many SUV's in my life and so have I driven some good ones (LC Prado , Amazon,X5,Audi Q7,Pajero etc) but this one is so imposing . Its even more imposing than a Hummer H2 (Not H1) . The height , the width , the sheer rugged looks of it got my knees weak in a split second. Truly amazing Jeep . I salute the guy who has tastefully done this job. Hope mahindra gets out something like this globally . Mind blowing to look at ! Am sorry if I sounded too excited but it really was a treat for my eyes.

Ps : Sorry for the poor picture quality (Phone camera)

Hey, this is one MEAN machine.. I imagine myself at the wheel and sort of feel the terrain giving way like the seas parting.

Wow! Those pics are astounding indeed. Made the hair on the bac of my neck stand up. Its also got that "don't mess with me" look that is sometimes essential on Indian roads.

Great looking Jeep, high on character character. It seems to be owned by Harjeev's cousin. I have my doubts on how that suspension is going to work off the road though.

Looks more like a show pony, a good one at that, than a tough offroader. Racing seats on an offroader ? Does it really help ?

1) Wont the Hella lights in front of the Radiator block the Cool Air Intake and heat the engine / coolant further?

2) Tyres look great as also the rough paint job and the winch up front.

3) Have the battery and electics been boosted for the Halogens etc.

4) Is there also an engine transplant?

LOOKS GREAT, BUT what about the GO...

The 4th picture has very agressive look and has a "Don't mess with me" attitude.

But the tryes are kinda of very extreme i think. whats the use for such humongous Tyres

Racing seats would help stick on the seats while offroading
