Mahindra and Mahindra on Wednesday, presented India’s Olympic medallist PV Sindhu and Sakshi Malik with two specially customised Thar off-roaders.
Mahindra’s head honcho, Mr Anand Mahindra announced on Twitter last month that they will be gifting a brand new customized Mahindra Thar SUV to India’s Olympic Heroes.
Two ladies made the India proud by winning the Bronze and Silver medal respectively at the 2016 Rio Olympics.
PV Sindhu, who was the first Indian sportswoman to win a silver medal at the Olympic Games was gifted a silver-coloured Mahindra Thar by Dr. Pawan Goenka, executive director, Mahindra and Mahindra, which represented her silver medal winning performance. Sakshi Malik won the bronze in the women’s 58kg freestyle wrestling competition and to honour the same, she was presented a red-coloured Thar with a bronze grille up-front.
New Mahindra Thar gets beefier bumpers, reprofiled grille and bonnet, flared wheel arches, tweaked side sheet metal design, new foot boards on the sides and a redesigned exhaust pipe. We can also expect new alloy wheel design (accessory) and hubcaps.
