Modifying an old Mahindra Scorpio to the current model is possible. See the video here to understand how.
Mahindra Scorpio is in the Indian market for almost 18years now. It was launched for the first time in the year 2002. The first major design update, however, it got itself was in 2014. Nevertheless, the Scorpio remained the same under the skin. The body shell and ladder-frame chassis have not seen any crucial change since 2002. Well, this comes as a blessing because the older models can be modified to look like the facelifted Scorpio with ease. Here’s one video that showcases the same. It was uploaded on YouTube by The Gareeb Vlogger. In the video, he shows his old Mahindra Scorpio that is undergoing a modification job to sport the design of the facelifted avatar.
It can be seen that the front bumper, headlamps, and the bonnet of the SUV are replaced with those of the facelifted model. The side fenders are swapped with the newer ones as well. The rear quarter-panels are modified to house the new tail lamps, and the boot lid is replaced with that of the facelifted Scorpio. The rear bumper is from the facelifted version too. All of these parts are genuine Mahindra spares, thus conforming to the OEM quality standards. On the inside, however, this car is in a stripped-out condition as of now. The YouTuber, though, claims that it will be getting wrapped with a lot of leather. The interior of the car will be done in a two-tone fashion made of tan and beige colour schemes.
Powering the outgoing Mahindra Scorpio is a 2.2L 4-cylinder turbocharged diesel engine that is capable of dishing out a peak power output of 140 PS and max torque of 330 Nm. It comes coupled to a 6-speed stick shift gearbox. The pre-facelift model, however, was offered with a 2.6-litre turbocharged oil burner. This unit was originally developed for tractors. It belted out a peak power output of 110 PS and max torque of 260 Nm. The transmission duties were performed by a 5-speed manual unit. Also, there was a de-tuned version of the 2.2L mHawk engine, which generated a rated power and torque output of 120 PS and 290 Nm, respectively.
