A trending Instagram reel has captured the attention of car enthusiasts, showcasing a unique Tata Motors’ Safari with an unconventional setup of six wheels instead of the conventional four. The viral footage has sparked a storm of shares and comments, with netizens marveling at this modified Safari’s unusual appearance.
The white-colored Safari, noticeably elongated, now accommodates two extended seats behind the rear, expanding its seating capacity for six individuals. This augmentation not only alters its size but elongates the wheelbase, potentially offering enhanced stability on rough terrains. However, this alteration raises concerns regarding adherence to vehicular regulations, as there’s no indication in the video of the necessary registration with the local transport authority after such a modification.
The video, garnering over 33 thousand likes, has stirred admiration for this modified Tata Safari. Comment sections are abuzz with speculations and opinions. Some viewers jest that the car owner seems to have a penchant for trucks, while others are in awe of this unconventional transformation. The Safari proudly sports ‘Ladakh’ in English on its body, each of its six tires adorned with sleek black alloy wheels. The vehicle’s length mirrors that of a limousine, yet surprisingly, its width remains unaltered.
Contrasting this modification to the standard Tata Safari available in the market, the typical model measures 4668 mm in length, 1922 mm in width, and 1795 mm in height. The stock Safari operates as a front-wheel-drive car, housing a robust 1956 cc diesel engine and offering both manual and automatic transmission options. Recently, an updated version of the car hit the market, with the base model priced at Rs 16.19 lakh ex-showroom.
