The Mahindra XUV700 took the market by storm when it was launched in the Indian market. It became very popular among the buyers. We haven’t seen many customized Mahindra XUV700s on the market yet but here’s one. This XUV700 is wrapped in Nardo Gray.
The Nordo Gray paint scheme became popular because of Audi. They were the first to use the Nardo Gray paint shade to enhance their performance. However, now many customization shops have started offering Nardo Gray wrap and even paint. For this reason, many people have wrapped their cars for a more sporty look.
Here the XUV700 is wrapped in a glossy Nardo Gray. The wrapper doesn’t do justice to the XUV700’s character line. For this reason, the XUV700 looks a little dull and smooth. So far, we don’t know if any changes have been made to the interior.
