Post Gautam Gambhir gets a Bolero Stinger

Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd. (M&M), the leader in the utility vehicle segment in India, presented ace Indian opener Gautam Gambhir with a Mahindra Bolero Stinger - a customized concept of the Mahindra Bolero.

Mahindra Bolero Stinger is a customized vehicle with some very sophisticated and exciting features. The Mahindra Bolero Stinger delivers an unmatched power of 97 PS, driven by a technologically advanced CRD engine. The custom built front guard with auxiliary lamps and an imposing front grille lend a touch of stylish elegance to the vehicle. A modified bonnet with stepped draw-in bezel add to the fine detailing of the Mahindra Bolero Stinger, which is further enhanced by uniquely stylised body cladding. Customised body paint along with special tail lamp bezel and rear roll cage lend the Mahindra Bolero Stinger a unique, sporty stance. Additional features include a premium MP3 player and a reverse camera with sensors. The Mahindra Bolero Stinger concept also offers custom fit colour co-ordinated interiors, customised floor carpeting and a unique leather suede upholstery that add a touch of glamour to this stunning offroader

First was the customized Scorpio, and now Bolero. For some reason, Its not inspiring me. The 2nd pics shows they could have thought something more good.

The bonnet looks horrible. Mahindra does try new things but seldom do they come out with classy stuff. I really admire their never say die attitude. Keep trying M&M.

Whats with color and that contraption on the bonnet. Looks like the brains of the designers from M&M decided to go for walk. Somehow the Scop' in yellow was much better IMO.

On the lighter side, he dint pay a penny so why complain eh ?

M&M has reaffirmed itself as the lead contender in the race for manufacturer of ugliest cars! Its a disaster, ergonomic failure, primitive, agrarian, Im out of words.

On seeing such lousy products, interest in likes of Scorpio take a beating!

Locally available jugads are better to look at than this one!

Maybe their Ad agency decided that its too ugly for the brochures - so they had to give it away free!

Seriously ugly and tasteless.

No Matter how ugly.
Its free and he may sell it at a premium.
It will sell at a premium because its owner by a cricketer and there are many freaks who would love to purchase this.

Just a thought.

Looks really ugly though.

I feel the Bolero is a good looking SUV, but this Stinger sure could do with some better strokes of work. For starters, the yellow's a bit too loud IMO, and the crew cab look could have been scaled down to give the rear segment a more classy look.

by god looks awful ! Instead of making clean powerful vehicles these guys are constantly adding frills to the skirts. always overworking on designs. always losing clean lines of 'form follows function ' minimalistic design mantra.
check this jeep. hope i can upload the images !
