Mahindra has released a brief video showing a brown Thar Wanderlust’s exterior and interior. The registration plate says the one-off example is from Udaipur, and word is that the vehicle belongs to the city’s Royal Family.
The brown Mahindra Thar Wanderlust features camouflage graphics on the centre of the bonnet as well as in the lower body on the sides and black wheels with orange stripes. Inside, there's a contrasting dark brown upholstery in the modified off-roader.
The Mahindra Thar Wanderlust’s most appealing design characteristics are its wraparound glass area and the gullwing rear doors. It features 35-inch tyres, snorkel, CRC steel bumpers, electric winch, roof-mounted dune lights, Mahindra Scorpio-inspired high-mounted rear lights, custom fenders with integrated light tube side indicator and two 20-litre Jerry cans as well.
The Mahindra Thar Wanderlust is aimed at customers wanting something less extreme and plusher than the Mahindra Thar Daybreak Edition. Occupants sit in cosy leather seats and can enjoy sunlight and natural air through an electric sunroof. For it’s a more urban product, as features like a touchscreen infotainment system (Android-based) with navigation, head-up display, mood lighting and a sound system with an under-seat subwoofer are included in the modification package.
Wanderlust, one of the many different customisation packages available for the Mahindra Thar, costs INR 13.8 lakh. The brown unit in the video is the CRDe 4x4 model with the top-of-the-line 2.5-litre diesel engine (105 bhp/247 Nm), 5-speed manual transmission and a BorgWarner transfer case. The donor model costs INR 9,49,073 (ex-showroom Delhi).
