Common guys, sarcasm is not the way for any healthy discussion. Keep the discussion respectful.

I am sorry about my post as well, but when people make claims it should be substantiated with some relevant news etc.. Something besides "Trust me, I know this stuff" reasoning...


By nature, I tend to question something when I feel that the reasoning behind it doesn't make sense? How can the Scorpio be inspired by Bagira? Doesn't Mahindra not have it's own product development teams that are thinking about strategic products?

@Samurai san et al, can't you keep this locked till Force announces the said elusive vehicle with the Merc mill in question, Om santi?

I've been hearing about this vehicle even before my son was born, and he's now in UKG. Now look, more and more fictitious vehicles keep appearing...

Just my 2c.

I totally agree with Sandeep. Every now and then someone comes along and informs us that the patient is alive but when we go in and look at the life support monitor, all I see is a flat line....

Last I heard was they were planning to assemble and launch a re-badged Chinese SUV. Before they could even book a ticket to Shangai, Doshis from Premier steals this idea and launches another Chinese clone. Loosing your dinner to Mahindra/Tata is understandable but allowing Doshi to take away your meal is in-excusable.

I agree with what 007 BOND told about the model Baghira. The Baghira i dont know whether it was inhouse product or under licence from Mercedes Benz but what i have read on internet it never got into commercial production. If you see the radiator of trax its mentioned BTL BAGHIRA. All trax owners do see it i myself have seen it in a Gurkha.

Nobody is questioning the existence or planned prodution of the Bhagira, what we find hard to accept is that the idea for Scorpio was stolen from Bhaghira.

Have to agree with 4X4..

This thread seems to be getting OFF topic. SO If its ok, requesting the Mods to lock it till the actual engine in subject line is available...

Guys, I'm closing this thread until the Gurkha is actually confirmed for launch with the OM611 common-rail (if at all).
