The ‘Mahindra Thar’ NFTs

Mahindra Thar has been a superhero for the brand as well as in the lives of owners as it helps break through new frontiers, challenge the self and do what others simply can’t.

Staying true to the NFT space and the aesthetic that one sees, Mahindra is showcasing their superhero - the All-New Thar, conjuring the superhero’s story, in surreal surroundings using popular visual styles that verge on the fantastical, symbolism and written narratives that accompany each NFT.

  • NFT 1 - Born of the Earth: Born of the Earth, forged from elements hidden deep within, The All-New Mahindra Thar embodies an evolution of the extraordinary. Our superhero comes from a lineage toughened by time and shaped by winds of change; from forefathers that have braved the wrath of the sun, the cold indifference of the winter snow and everything in between. As successive generations evolved to battle the unpredictability of nature, the Thar character began to emerge, destined to become a country’s timeless icon: a name pronounced in the same breath with mythical superheroes who were born to explore the impossible.
  • NFT 2 -  Taking Flight: The first flight of any superhero fires up our imagination, giving flight to a dream and giving purpose to our superhero. Realizing this purpose means evolving with change. With pure 4x4 energy at its core, The All-New Thar takes a leap of faith by embracing new powers to meet the demands of a new generation searching for a sense of adventure. The limit of what is possible is like shifting desert sands; every generation pushes it forward from the last and it’s The All-New Mahindra Thar turns their flights of fancy into a thrilling reality.
  • NFT 3 - Standing Tall: As Mahindra Thar became the people’s icon, the name became synonymous with the ability to take on extreme adversity. The All-New Thar takes on the toughest terrains, raging rivers, breath-taking inclines and death-defying dunes. Myth and reality begin to blur as stories of Thar’s impossible feats start to spread across the world. Is it a car, is it a beast, is it a superhero? One thing is certain: The All-New Mahindra Thar stands tall above everyone else, only because we feel the same way when behind the wheel.
  • NFT 4 - Exploring the Impossible: As the All-New Thar powers through your life, you are shaken from your routine to rise from that bean bag of daily grind. The All-New Mahindra Thar shows you that life is outside, at the fringes, in places beyond your line of vision. That there are boundaries that you must cross, that the road not taken is the only way forward. The roar of the All-New Mahindra Thar is not just a call for you to go out and explore the impossible, it’s also that feeling deep down telling you that you are alive.
