Many car enthusiasts like building their own cars or customizing their vehicles. Maia Rymbai of Jowai, Meghalaya, is one of these people, having converted a Mahindra tractor into a Mahindra Thar-like vehicle. Anand Mahindra, the chairman of the Mahindra Group, posted a picture of the vehicle on Twitter. 

In his tweet, Mahindra also stated that the customised vehicle seems to be a strange-looking beast. “Now that’s a strange looking beast…But it looks like a loveable character from a Disney animated film!" Mahindra further added. 

The customised vehicle is based on a Mahindra 275 DI TU tractor, according to Mahindra Tractors, a division of Mahindra Group specialised to agricultural and farming machinery. This is one of the company's best-selling tractors, capable of producing 39 horsepower and appropriate for both agricultural and haulage activities. 

The cabin also has a front windshield, as well as driver and front passenger side windows. The vehicle's front fascia is identical to that of the original tractor. The owner has, however, fitted a front bumper. Front wheel covers that seem like they belong on a Mahindra Thar are also there, as are side turning indicators. Although the back of the car is not visible, it looks to have a retractable soft top. It's unclear whether the tractor's owner has made any mechanical modifications.

He was awarded the Padma Bhushan, India's third-highest civilian honour, for the year 2020 in the area of trade and industry earlier this month.
