Team Mahindra Adventure's Super XUV500 finished fastest and became the overall champions of Desert Storm 2014. Known to be one of the toughest rallies in India, Desert Storm, boasts of a rally route which spans 3000kms across locations like Sadarseher, Bikaner, Jaisalmer & Jaipur, where conditions are tough and the heat unforgiving.
The Super XUV500 was driven across these challenging terrains by Sunny Sidhu (Driver) & PVS Murthy (Co-driver). In fact, it created history by becoming the first ever diesel vehicle to win the Desert Storm rally. Last year Mahindra Adventure bagged the 2nd, 3rd & 4th places in the 11th edition of the Desert Storm and with this year's triumph over the rest of the teams, it has taken the competition to a new level.
Commenting on the success of the XUV500, Mr. Vivek Nayer, Chief Marketing Officer, Automotive Division, Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd. said, "With this spectacular win at the Desert Storm 2014 the cheetah inspired Super XUV500 has unmistakably marked its territory in the extreme rally-raid format in India. We dedicate this unprecedented win to millions of Mahindra customers & fans across the nation"
