    A friend of Mr Pratap was facing some difficulty in walking. Doctors and relatives suggested him to use a wheelchair. But he didn't want any of those ordinary boring wheelchairs available in the market. He shared the same to Mr Pratap, and the idea of a cool wheelchair was born. Mantra Racing started the project, and to make the wheelchair like no other, they decided to install AC in it. The armrests and headrest are provided with adjustable vents to channel the airflow.

Other features include the lighting system, with hazard warnings. To make things more interesting, Mantra Racing has installed custom alloy wheels and a big spoiler at the back of the electric wheelchair. The blue wheelchair doesn't have an ordinary seat, but has a racing bucket!
