The Hulk is a new modified Thar by DC Design. Mechanically, DC2 Hulk still comes with the same engine provided by Mahindra. However, DC2 has customised the exteriors as well as the interior.
According to DC2, designers wanted to maintain Mahindra Thar’s rawness with a touch of luxury.
Earlier I showed you a list of modified cars by DC & you guys flooded the comment box. Before I show you DC modified Mahindra Thar, let me give you a glimpse of Dilip Chhabria.
DC Design now rebranded to DC2 is a well-known car modification house in India. The company specializes in customising cars, bikes, and motorhomes. That not all, DC2 also design and manufactures a range of concept vehicles, Vanity Vans as per request. Let’s check the details about DC2 Hulk, shall we?
Mahindra Thar Hulk’s Luxurious Interiors
Inside DC2 Hulk, you get a new luxurious skin. The dashboard & other inside components have been wrapped with red-colour leather upholstery. Compared to the ordinary Mahindra Thar cabin, the DC2 Hulk cabin is upmarket and comes with newly designed bucket seats for all the passengers which is pretty exclusive. Usually, I’ve seen similar car interiors in luxury car brands like Bentley.
In terms of features, DC2 Hulk comes fitted with a massive sunroof (1200 mm x 980 mm) covering the entire roof, blue ambient lighting on air-con vents, ceiling lights, and lots of chrome/metal finishing.
Mahindra Thar Hulk’s Modern Exteriors
The exterior is the most unique part of DC2 Hulk. The car modification company has added more rugged elements to the exteriors. On the side, you see massive fenders covering wheel arches which give bulky looks to the off-roader.
In the front, it has all LED triple-beam headlamps with 9 spoke soft finish grille and new wide-body panels. Here, I loved the LED design and combination with the front facia of the Hulk.
Hulk has a redesigned bonnet with scoops to add aerodynamics and provide more air to cool down the engine. In addition, DC2 Hulk also gets a retractable sidestep. Usually, you see this feature inexpensive SUVs like Range Rover but it is indeed a nice feature seeing the effort passengers might face while going in-out of the vehicle.
Mahindra Thar Hulk’s Engine & Specifications
Mechanically, Hulk’ engine remains the same.
DC Design is all known for cosmetic and body changes. They usually don’t take part in engine mechanics. Under the hood, Hulk offers the same ongoing Mahindra’s 2-engine option – a 2.2-litre diesel engine and a 2.0-litre turbo petrol engine. Both the engine comes paired with a choice between a 6-speed manual and 6-speed automatic transmission.
With the help of DC2 design and comfort after customization, you can enjoy all-terrain all say flawlessly.
Mahindra Thar Hulk’s Price
DC2 Thar customization costs around Rs. 10.75 lakhs. Of course, it doesn’t cover the cost of Mahindra Thar (new or used). To give Mahindra Thar owners different choices, DC2 offers different packages for the exterior and interior modification.
The exterior pack of Thar Hulk costs Rs. 4.5 lakhs which includes body panel kit, big 26-inch wheels, multibeam headlamps, blacked A-pillar, and all aluminium auto-retracting footsteps. In terms of interiors, DC2 charges around Rs. 2.5 lakhs which covers red-leather upholstery, metal finishing, and lighting.

Individual package includes:
|Sports Seats||Rs. 1.5 lakhs|
|Sunroof||Rs. 2.5 lakhs|
The exterior of Hulk is pretty good. At first impression, I loved the multi-beam lighting and side profile with big off-road wheels, adding muscle looks to the Mahindra Thar. Inside, Hulk comes packed with luxury with given practicality by the manufacturer. I felt the modification price of this DC modified Thar a bit overpriced.
