Mahindra Group Chairman Anand Mahindra has presented a rare Thar 700 to Udaipur prince Lakshyaraj Singh Mewar. Mahindra recently handed over the keys of brand-new Mahindra Thar 700 -- available in a limited number and will be the last units of the current-generation model, reports cartoq. Thar 700 is priced at Rs 9.99 lakh.
“The Mewar family of Udaipur is a known automobile aficionado and almost 20 years ago, they inaugurated the vintage car museum in the city of lakes,” said the report.
Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd, part of the $20.7 billion Mahindra Group, in June announced the launch of Thar 700, the last batch of 700 units of the iconic 4x4 off-road SUV. Thar 700 marks the 70 years’ legacy of Mahindra, as its lineage traces back to 1949 when the first Mahindra vehicle was built in India.

Mahindra later took to Twitter to say that the car wasn’t a gift. “He acquired it at full price. He doesn’t need me to gift him anything!“ Mahindra tweeted.
The Mahindra Thar 700 will share space with hundreds of classic and vintage cars alongside modern cars like the Rolls Royce Ghost at the Udaipur prince’s residence.
