Tata Motors commissions Big Daddy Customs on a modernized Tata Grande
Posted on: Jan 25, 2013 - 1:09pm IST
Since the time the Evoque-inspired Tata Moonrover spread across auto blogs, enthusiast pages and forums like a new meme, we’ve had one eye on the projects that Big Daddy Customs are working on.
Their Facebook page updates with a gallery after every project is finished, and it was updated this week with a very interesting piece of work.
Tata Motors awarded Big Daddy Customs an opportunity to work on modernizing the Sumo Grande. The objective of the project was to transform the image of the Grande from a very utilitarian, MUVish vehicle to an urban, sophisticated and modern SUV.
According to Big Daddy Customs, Tata had strict guidelines to not touch the sheet metal parts. The softer exterior organs like the bumpers and lights could be remade as if the final product gets the green light, it would not cost Tata a fortune to manufacture.
Big Daddy have redesigned the front bumper and grille combo, put on floating side steps, reworked the rear bumper and infused LED lights into the stop light cluster. Ultramarine blue-matt grey finish was chosen throughout the body work and the wheels to lend it a very unique look.
Big Daddy has also modified the branding – they are calling their version a Xenon variant as it shares many common parts with it.
What part of this customization project would you like to see go into the facelift of the Tata Grande?
