Seems she indeed has been enrolled in by M&M guys, otherwise why would she have reviewed the XUV 500 when it was launched ?



And she was around for the 100th MGE @ Rajhasthan;





Clearly IMO this move is by M&M more than the enthusiast in Gul

A normal scorpio without even a 4WD would have been good enough for driving on graded / hard mud track, all this has been done purely for visual appeal.

As for the real stuff, if subjected to extreme off roading, or even some bad slush, the CV joint and tie rods of this Mahindra weakling would snap.

This is a history with Mahindra Scorpio 4x4 and Thar which share the same suspension set up.

What I DO know is that SOMEONE is using it!!! I was just about to post these photos with the thread title, "expedition ready Getaway" when I saw your own post! Check out these pics I snapped just a few hours ago on the way down from Rohtang (was up there with the Marshal and family - see my "Our Marshal" thread). I would expect the vehicle and whomever was driving it could be found somewhere around Manali this evening. If I'd seen your thread earlier, I'd have tried to get a better look at the driver - from what I could tell, he/she was young and slim, driving alone, but with a Scorpio 4x4 support vehicle (bodyguard???) behind...

Got almost up alongside it just before we turned off for our place. Looks to be a very well executed / equipped vehicle. My wife likes these Getaways, so we were paying a good bit of attention to it the several km. we followed it down.

We did it in October 2007 on lightweight modified / imported bikes, and it was challenging enough at that. I met other folks who had tried it in a Scorpio and nearly died, and another who ended up pushing his Bullet Electra most of the way up the ridiculously steep, loose inclines. One 60kph (motorcycle travel club) member on a modified 500cc Thunderbird - from what I'm told - went off the edge last year, falling into a nallah, totaling the bike and apparently narrowly saving his own life by clinging onto some big stone in the current...

Nice concept and workmanship on the Getaway.

The only draw back I find in the Getaway is the rear overhang which is too much to make it an OTR vehicle.

Getaway is good as an expedition vehicle but not as an OTR vehicle. I always believe in a double cabin pick up as an expedition vehicle.

Here are few photos of the nicely done Mahindra Pik Up!

What can I say? I didn't mean to hurt her. She just assumed too much. Now she cruises the Himalayas hoping to catch up with me. She just might do it now that I own a Thar, now that I am on the side of the road with my hood up a lot.

Hi Guys,

It's great to see that the Getaway customised by Sarbloh Motors has caught your attention.

This particular Getaway, which had been christened as Super Milo was done by me for Gul Panag. She is currently on a trip to Pin Valley.

I will post the details of the work done on this vehicle tomorrow.

Regards,

Jaskirat Singh Nagra

Most of the people will have the same opinion, me included. In fact i am a keen follower of her travel journeys since the time i read about her escapades in scorpio which she had initially.

Congratulations once more for the awesome job. Any details on the TV show which is going to cover the journey?

Excellent work Jaskirat. Please do share the details and ofcourse the cost, if you can. Since it must be a sponsored work while executing the same am sure you would have got alternate ideas as well for individual pockets, lol. What would be a ball park figure would someone be looking at to modify a pickup into an expedition vehicle?

Well, if she was headed for Pin Valley:

1. Her GPS must've been malfunctioning, because she was driving in exactly the opposite direction (my photos were of the vehicle headed DOWN Rohtang towards Manali, around Kothi).

2. Even if she was driving the right direction, she'd have been disappointed at the entry to Pin Valley, as the bridge over the Spiti River was washed away in the storms last month, and I hear from a good source that it has not yet been rebuilt... perhaps that fact had been discovered already when I saw them?

Hi Eric,

You are right, she actually could not make it to Pin Valley. The day you saw that vehicle, i.e., 25th they were on their way back after 4 days of camping at Chatru. They had actually left on 20th July.

Will post some pictures when I get them from her.

The NGC show is for Ford Endeavor not Scorpio. So this might be a different series

Yes. You are correct, its not a Scorpio getaway.
The mention of this series is to only say, Gulpanag is having fun with not only M&M rides, but also with Fords too.

Dear Sudarshan Ji, Thanks for putting up the pictures of Super Milo (as Gul calls it) on Team BHP. This vehicle was customized by me (Sarbloh Motors).

Gul as many of you already know is a huge expedition enthusiast and would put this vehicle through rigorous use. The Tent, Hi Lift Jack etc. are all going to see definite use.

Rest assured, these are not for cosmetic purpose only, and have application in mind.

I think there is a TV show in which Gul Panag drives around the country in this vehicle. I must say M&M is doing alot of things to promote lifestyle vehicle culture.

Kudos to M&M.
Thanks mac187. Gul definitely plans to take this vehicle around the country. I don't know about the involvement of M&M though. She has just yesterday returned from a trip to Chatru on Rohtang Pass - Kunjum Pass at 3300m.

You got that absolutely correct genesis, Gul is a very gutsy individual. And I am thankful to Gul for having given me the opportunity of customizing her drive.

I don't know if there is any show planned coloneljasi. But I am sure there would be videos and pictures coming us on social media in next few days.

I am sure desertfox that you have experience to back your statement, but contrary to yours, after testing this Getaway on several terrains including slush, I find it quite capable. In fact I prefer it to standard Scorpio (4x4). I just wish it had a shorter overhang at the back.

I dont expect it to be subjected to extreme offroading of the kind indulged in by Gerrari Offroaders (see pic), but it very happily can take on river beds, sand, and slush.

Other photos are now up on her twitter page - definitely quite interesting!

Basically the way many of us here think of a 4x4 - not as much hardcore offroading as an adventure / expedition / go anywhere vehicle!
