Tata Hexa has been one of the most talked about cars made by the Indian automaker recently and had left us impressed when we tested it last year before its launch in January 2017. Now, a video of the car towing a Boeing 737-800 is doing the rounds on social media wherein it gets a chance to show off the amount of torque it generates.

The Boeing 737-800 aircraft is a stretched version of the 737-700 and seats 162 passengers in a two-class layout, or 189 in one class. The aircraft can go up to a maximum speed of over 850 km/h, measures almost 40 metres in length and has an operating empty weight of 41,400 kilos.

This comes after another video of the hexa went viral recently wherein the 7-seater SUV was being driven around on two-wheels.

What needs to be kept in mind is that when pulling a heavy object like an airplane which is on wheels, one needs to have enough power to have it moving from standstill. Post which, once the plane is in motion, the amount of torque required is significantly lower.

This is not the first time, though, that an SUV has taken to towing in order to show off the torque it generates. Last year, Range Rover Discovery had pulled a 100-tonne train in Switzerland. You can read it more about it here. Since Tata Motors owns Jaguar Land Rover (JLR), a point of 'inspiration', perhaps?
