I guess these are DC designs and they were shown in an autocar issue. The Scorpio looks fine but really its wierd to see a stretched Cielo

Cheers

Now I have seen everything - A hatchback Limo (Skoda Octavia)!!

The Mahindra Scorpio is not exactly stretched out as a limo, Mahindra had heard too many customers complaining about the 2nd row leg room being inadequate. So they built a prototype from DC. I have seen the car at my Jeep workshop and it is nothing short of outstanding. Look carefully and you will see the spare tyre hooked on where it belongs - The rear tailgate!! I also remember a 2nd and 3rd row air-con system inside. The only ugly part was the front end, it had a typically akward DC front bumper treatment.

The job on the Scorpio is really good. An already good looking vehicle has got even better. Now if they just sort the braking and handling out, India will have an SUV that'll be really worth its value.

I agree with Aditya the Scorpoio mod is the only really good one. If need Merc Limo i would buy it from the manufacturer would give one to DC to modify. Btw has any seen DC modified E Classes?? Yuck!!!

Cheers

By any stretch of imagination, the color red and a few prancing horse stickers do not make a ferrari. So stop worrying abt it.

I like your sense of humour.
Do you actually want to see a streched Wagon R?
Let's try a digital stretch before anybody ventures.
Cheers.
