Last bid at 2 sec prior to close was 1,11,00,000 by someone in chikmagalur. That's some money spent on the first Thar.

Now let's see what is in store for smaller souls like us who can only afford the lakhs part of the bid. Hope Mahindra does not get carried away with auction success.

I was watching it live, did not see this reflect on the site. Also this would mean two people placed bid of 25k each. Anyhow will know by Friday I guess.

I bet that Income Tax sleuths are closely watching the top bidders. The IT department used to audit Daewoo Cielo owners in the 1990s by getting RC lists from RTOs countrywide, in case you're wondering how (un)real my thought is.

I managed to grab the below screenshot. And now after you said, I realised the name changed. This is interesting. Seems it was a refresh lag. It is from Delhi, correct. (I have a feeling the person is related to the "Minda" industries, the big auto parts supplier).

Anyone else has any info on TD vehicles ?
Sometime in Sept , I had received a call from a M&M run customer contact centre at Mumbai , and this call was in response to the interest I had shown on their website during their Unveil.

I got a call from the same number today evening checking if I would need a test drive ( is that even a question &#128522. She then confirmed some details and told me to expect a call from their dealer at Mysore Road.

Lets see if the showroom calls. Else , I shall be visiting the one at Bommanahalli.

Hope this 1.1 crore bid doesn't result in pricing overconfidence by Mahindra.

For sure it has given a boost to the desirability factor of the launch. The final bid screenshots are getting circulated in WhatsApp groups- and instead of the earlier 'Wrangler copy' discussions - it has now become 'Why pay more than a Wrangler?' discussions.

It's official! Thar #1 has fetched a whopping 1,11,000,00 INR at the 'Give to Get' auction.

Mahindra Thar Review : First Drive-screenshot_20200929193717_chrome.jpg

Mahindra will match the amount raised at the auction and the entire proceeds (excluding the on-road price of the vehicle) will be donated. ~2 crores for a good cause!

Additionally, Thar #1 will come with a customized badge with the winner's initials, serial number 1 on the decorative VIN plate on the dashboard and leatherette seats.

Eagerly waiting for the price to be released.
Hope M&M don't disappoint!

The auction price was crazy, and like someone mentioned, I can afford the Lakh part of it only!
I'll make a trip to Bommanahalli M&M showroom this weekend to check out the vehicle for real.

Fair enough, I stand corrected, not jugged, but "improvements" out side the normal

Stay home, the vehicle will not be there this weekend.

If you are talking about Sireesh Auto, Silk board, they said they are not going to have the TD vehicle before mid-oct. Or did someone confirm you it will be available this weekend?

Even I have my doubts with Shireesh Auto Bommanahalli. When I called today, they weren't sure and told that they will call back once they have info. Obviously things can change in the next 2 days, but I doubt.
It's strange because with such an anticipated launch, people will flock to the showroom only to get disappointed. This could have been the best use of a long weekend.

The same GTO who evangelizes pre-worshipped route?
Except for a couple of Mercs last decade and a Sunny has steadfastly bought depreciated used cars.
And has proclaimed he would wait for TWO years before buying a Thar, that too when he is so smitten by the Thar that he did the unbelievable, planning to sell off his old jeep!!!!

Nah, if he does that like @highwaypatrol said, he would definitely be the real plot twist villain.
