Default Modified Scorpio - An email forward I received.

Mods: I did search on the forum but didn't find any such thread. Please close/modify this thread if found irrelevant.

Friends,
Heres a email I received yesterday of a modified scorpio.
not sure if this is an old forward that has resurfaced however this is the first time I have see this email.

I am only doing a copy paste from the email. Don't know the original source.

Some of the pictures of the modified Scorpio definetly look like photoshopped.

The in construction photos definetly look genuine.
Not sure whether this vehicle really exists. However its definetly worth looking at it least conceptually.

Heres how the email goes-
This dream SUV was customized by Kishan Lohiya.
Here is the letter from Kishan Lohiya:
Since my childhood I was always interested in cars and bikes, but once when I drove one of my friend's SUV I just fell in love with only big cars i.e. SUVs.. Its lovely feeling as if you are driving a military tank.. The branded SUV car designs in my country were not able to match my expectations. So I decided to make my own SUV with a good Indian branded SUV. I wanted a pickup truck like concept, so I cut my brand new 10 Seater Cab to make a beautiful cabin out of it. Then I was hunting for big tyres for it. I could get them all the way from California. I Air Lifted the tyres (Super Swampers:16 "Rim size ,36"Height) from LA to INDIA. These are the only tyres in my whole country. Got a Beautiful winch from Bangkok which is again American branded (WARN Winch). And also added a Air Snorkel on the side of the car which really supports the heavy design of the car.. I love the 4 lights which I have designed on the bonnet of the cab. Its looks really very macho with those lights.
Just wanted to say that I didn't use my computer at all for designing my car. I simply got started with the work and it came out really good.
Am sending the original picture of the cab which I have made. Its an Indian brand: "Mahindra Scorpio".
Thank you for taking interest in my baby. And let me tell you again that your site was really a great inspiration for me to make such a beautiful "2 Seater SUV Pick Up Truck".

Behind the Scenes"
It looks like there is no lift - only sheet metal cutting. The 36 inch Super Swamper tires look promising and are way out of the body.

Comparison with an original and un modified Mahindra Scorpio shows the much improved design.

Has any BHPian seen this in person?

@Allan - May be this can give you some inspiration for your Scorpio mod.
