Customised Mahindra Bolero inspired by Mercedes G55 AMG has been crafted by Kerala-based tuning firm R&T Auto Catalyst
Mahindra Bolero is certainly one car which can do some real tough tasks. But what if a Mahindra Bolero turns into a Mercedes-Benz G-Wagen? Yes, exactly that happened when Kerala-based R&T Auto Catalyst modified a Bolero to give it a G55 AMG like appearance. The modification is so good, that at exterior it’s really tough to identify the car as a Bolero under the skin.
Both the SUVs come with boxy shape, which has helped the car modifier to give the Bolero a Mercedes-Benz G-Wagen appearance. Mahindra Bolero’s stock body panels were swapped with G-Wagen mimicking body panels, which are built by R&T Auto Catalyst. The modified SUV comes with similar headlamps, horizontal LED lights, identical front grille with plenty of chrome garnishing, and the similar front bumper as well.
The front hood, side profile, wheel arches, footboard and taillights also look identical to the G-Wagen. What’s more interesting is that the rear door has been modified exactly like the G-Wagen, which gives it a real G-Wagen like vibe. The modified Bolero runs on wide and meaty AMG replica wheels, which ensures the car looks like a real Mercedes-Benz G-Wagen.
While the exterior of the car sports plenty of elements making the Bolero look like a genuine G-Wagen, interior of the car has been heavily redesigned as well. Though the interior doesn’t look as much similar to G55 AMG, as the exterior is. It sports a lather wrapped steering wheel with three-star logo on it. Apart from that, the centre console and AC vents come with wooden trims. Unlike G55’s touchscreen infotainment system, this modified car gets a stereo system, while instrument cluster are very different as well.
Inside the cabin, the modified Mahindra Bolero features new seats, new upholstery, which altogether made an attempt to make the car look like a very upmarket one. On powertrain front the car appears as Bolero only. The 2.5-litre stock turbo diesel engine remains intact under the hood. The car looks like a Mercedes-Benz G-Wagen at exterior, but inside it the character of Bolero is still same.
