Man get Bolero in exchange of a car he built with abandoned materials
Mumbai : In December 2021, a Maharashtra-based man had built a mini four-wheeler using abandoned spare parts. Impressed by his creation, Anand Mahindra offered him a brand-new Bolero in exchange to his car.
Anand Mahindra felt that his car will incidentally run into trouble for not complying with the norms; exactly a month later, the industrialist announced that Dattatraya Lohar accepted his offer and accepted the delivery of new Bolero.
Sharing the pictures of delivery ceremony, Anand Mahindra tweeted, "Delighted that he accepted the offer to exchange his vehicle for a new Bolero. Yesterday his family received the Bolero, and we proudly took charge of his creation. It will be part of our collection of cars of all types at our Research Valley and should inspire us to be resourceful."
The mini four-wheeler was built with an investment of ₹ 60,000, and it employs a kick-start mechanism, similar to what we see on a two-wheeler. It is a left-hand drive vehicle that has been built using old and abandoned car parts and it comes with a grille that looks similar to a Mahindra Thar.
Over the last few years, Mahindra has been looking to acquire unique cars for its museum. Among the collection is the old-gen Mahindra Thar that was used in Superstar Rajinikanth's movie 'Kaala', a special rickshaw built by a Kerala man, which has been modified to look like a Mahindra Scorpio from the rear.
