Yeah, but in that snow I would rather be inside the Scorpio listening to the stereo, adjusting the heater and drinking hot chai out of a thermos, watching GTO freeze his nads off.

I am curious, how did those Scorpios hold up on this little excursion(s)? Looks like they got a work out.

@Maddy42
Yeah, thats the one in Pune, it looks even better in the Monsoons with mud covering its sides! When are you getting yours here?

@Vinod_Nookala
Me too! That should be fixed later this year. Planning on a 550XD...

Has the chassis of vehicle being driven by the lady on the beach been stretched?

Alfa kilo,

The picture is that of mahindra CJ500 with petrol/diesel engines sold abroad, hence the extended wheelbase.
