The Super Mod
How do you improve upon an automobile that has never stopped scaling new heights on the sales chart? Well, if you go by the Mahindra way, then it is by refining and thereby improving it over the years. While the production version of the Bolero has seen constant improvement over the years there was a need for a version that would literally stand out in the crowd – enter the Customisation Division.
Since the first generation of the Bolero in 2001, Mahindra has launched four variants and five modded version from the Mahindra Customisation stable. The latest from the in-house customisation team is the Bolero Super Stinger which takes the rugged image of the highest selling Indian SUV to an all new high. What you see here is a new version of the Bolero Stinger that was unveiled in 2008. While the Stinger is powered by 97hp CRDe engine, the Super Stinger is powered by a 2523cc m2DiCR diesel engine producing 62.8 BHP of power and 195 Nm of torque mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox, similar to the stock Bolero.
The Bolero Stinger in its new avatar is styled to cater to the urban youth that would warm up to this variant as a driving companion in the city and on road trips. This SUV’s tough exteriors are complimented by a stylish scoop bezel, multi pod headlamps, 16 inch alloy wheels, custom paint and re-profiled bodyline.
Retaining the Bolero’s strength of being an off-roader, the Super Stinger has been further equipped with a snorkel, roll cage, fog lamps, skid plate to be a well-rounded off-roading machine. The rear body shell has been chopped off from the third row to make room for a cargo bay. The bumper has also been redesigned.
The interior now has new-age features such as a touch screen infotainment, home theatre audio visuals, unique mood lighting, heads up display and independent TFT screens. The Instrument panel is high on style with dual tone colours matched seamlessly with the door trims. The genuine leather upholstery adds to the premiumness of the Bolero Super Stinger.
