Mahindra Bolero gifted to man who built car from scrap

Lohar's creation will be displayed at Mahindra Research Valley.

Dattatraya Lohar from Maharashtra was all over the news last month. His claim to fame was a small car built using scrap. Lohar has now received a Bolero as a gift from none other than Anand Mahindra.

The vehicle built by Lohar looked like a mini Thar and soon caught the attention of Mahindra's top boss. Lohar was offered a Bolero in exchange for his creation, which will be put on display at Mahindra Research Valley.

Anand Mahindra confirmed this on Twitter saying, "Delighted that he accepted the offer to exchange his vehicle for a new Bolero. Yesterday his family received the Bolero & we proudly took charge of his creation. It will be part of our collection of cars of all types at our Research Valley & should inspire us to be resourceful".
