Mahindra and Mahindra Ltd. today launched a limited edition run of the Mahindra Thar. These are the last 700 units of the 4x4 off-roader ahead of it going out of production in light of new safety and emission norms. The Mahindra Thar 700, as it is being called, will get new features and be priced at Rs 9.99 lakh ex-showroom India. Mahindra is also using the Thar 700 to commemorate 70 years of Mahindra vehicle manufacturing. It's the latest in a line that includes greats like the CJ, the MM540, the Classic and the Legend.
New feature additions to the Thar 700 are stylised 5-spoke alloy wheels, decals on the side and bonnet, black finish on the grille, silver finish on the front bumper, leatherette upholstery with the Thar logo on the front seats and an anti-lock braking system (ABS). Topping all this off is a special badge on the vehicle with the signature of Anand Mahindra, chairman of the Mahindra Group. The limited-run Thar will be available in a new Aquamarine colour, along with the Napoli Black shade.
The Thar 700 remains mechanically changed otherwise. It pairs a 2.5-litre turbocharged diesel engine to a five-speed gearbox, making 106PS at 3,800rpm and 247Nm between 1,800rpm and 2,000rpm. Also present is a transfer case and a mechanically locking rear differential.

We believe that the enthusiasts will see it as their last chance to own a piece of this Mahindra legacy, as a must-have garage collectible. The Thar is clearly an extension of our 70 years legacy and what brand Mahindra stands for. Over the years, it has successfully shaped the lifestyle vehicle segment while being popular with the off-road tribe."
