Car modifications in India are not something new. In terms of performance, functionality, and aesthetics, petrolheads have been giving their four-wheelers a personal touch for decades. Recently, the car, which has caught significant market attention due to rising modification instances in the country, is the newly launched off-roader from the house of Maruti Suzuki: the Jimny. A while ago, we informed you that the SUV outperformed its counterparts with modifications worth approximately Rs 4.5 lakhs. In a recent development, a fresh modification case involving the first-ever Olive Green Maruti Suzuki Jimny has just surfaced online. Speaking of the modifications, the unique Olive Green paint job was given to the SUV by One Cars, in Gurgaon, while other changes were added by its owner: AM Racing. Let's read what interesting personal modifications the SUV gets this time.
New Maruti Suzuki Jimny Goes Olive Green
The latest modification has been on the entry-level Zeta version, as evidenced by the absence of fog lamps and headlight washers. The significant addition to the SUV is a striking Olive Green hue. As seen in images popping up online, the custom paint on the SUV invokes the picture of the Maruti Suzuki Gypsy, built for the Army. As a part of the modification, the new Jimny exhibits a blackened-out front grille, as well as, the roof, which is painted black. Overall, it offers a dual-tone appearance to the SUV. In terms of extras, we could notice window visors and Enkei rims.
The owner has also made several performance-boosting upgrades to the SUV, including the Enkei Japan RPT1 16x6J Zero Inset wheels, wrapped in Continental ContiCrossContact AT 235/70-spec tyres. There is also an inclusion of a Tanabe adjustable suspension package, which has a 14-click dial for height and dampening changes. Other notable custom components include a steering damper, front strut brace, front and rear adjustable lateral rods from Tanebe, and a Fujitsubo axle back exhaust silencer.
