The Mahindra Scorpio has been long in the tooth now. However, here's a modified Scorpio that looks as classy as the new 2020 model. Read on for further details.
There’s no denying the fact that the Mahindra Scorpio has started showing the time on its face, that comes courtesy of the latest-gen Scorpio introduced a while back. A car modifying workshop named Hybrid Custom has worked its ways to skillfully incorporate the newest avatar of the Scorpio into a ten-year-old model. Check out this neatly modified Scorpio that has been converted into a 2020 model.
The car featured here is a second-gen Mahindra Scorpio that was bought from 2011. They have given the Scorpio some certain mod jobs that make it look like the latest-gen model. It’s worth noting that all the parts used in the modification job are authentic and original.
The front end of the modified Scorpio has been completely reworked, seeing the infusion of a new bumper, grille, new headlamps and fog lamps and even a new bonnet lid. The custom DuPont gloss-black paint job looks brilliant on the Scorpio as the stock one. The side profile of the modified Scorpio received a slight change in the form of the new 22-inch five-spoke alloy wheels. The new alloys surely enhance the car’s overall look and attract more attention from the onlookers on the roads. The modified Mahindra Scorpio also gets added footrests along with the re-painted cladding.
Not much has been changed to the interior of the modified Mahindra car. While the dashboard layout remains unchanged, the cabin looks more upmarket with Nappa leather stitching all around. The diamond design pattern of the leather did give the cabin a more premium look. The car also gets new front seats sourced from Honda CR-V.
With all these interesting transformation jobs, the modified Scorpio now looks no inferior to a brand new 2020 model. However, do note that these transformations are for visual appeal only and the SUV remains mechanically the same as the original model.
As revealed in the video, the price of the second-gen Scorpio in good condition might be at around Rs 5 Lakh (estimated) while these modification jobs will cost you around Rs 2 Lakh. Since all the components and parts are authentically sourced from Mahindra & Mahindra, this modified Scorpio will certainly offer a decent quality.
First introduced in 2002, the long-serving Mahindra Scorpio has become a game-changer for the domestic brand in the Indian space. Carrying forward the legacy of the Mahindra MM540, the rugged-looking jeep-like SUV has been in production for almost two decades now and its popularity is massive. Mahindra Scorpio is highly appreciated for its decent reliability, great street presence, peppy engine, good resale value and low maintenance costs.
