No ways, man! It is a completely different animal.

Its a space frame chassis with a carbon fibre body on top.
Engine is a 2.5 litre TDI with 280bhp and 570Nm
0 to 100 km/h in 6.1 seconds

Note:
The 2 spare wheels mounted at the rear for perfect weight distribution.
The race car cockpit with the full vehicle information system with diagnostics.
The built in high lift jacks for fast wheel changes in case of the common punctures.

Default Our own Mahindra Scorpio doing its part at the Dakar Rally 2010

Here is a pic of Scorpio flexing it muscles to help the Aprilia team in the 2010 Dakar Rally.

The white truck, carrying all the supplies for the Aprilia team got stuck in the middle of the Atacama desert (Chile) when trying to get to the checkpoint at the Dakar .When others failed trying to pull it out.. The Mahindra Scorpio came to the rescue. The Aprilia team finished 3rd.

Name:  Scoprio pulling aprilia truck.jpg

Isn't anyone following this year's event at all? I did not see any thread on the 2011 Event anywhere. Or did I miss it by some chance?
Its sad to see that people are not interested in the mother of all Motorsports Events. Boy I used to dream of participating in the Dakar as a kid.

Excellent pictures there. Happy to see someone else who really loves the sport. It was great to see Al-Attiyah take the podium. Sainz was also doing good, But hard luck for him that he had to settle for third place on the podium. Awesome driving as usual none the less.

You can watch the videos of the 2011 event from the official Dakar channel on YouTube. Enjoy watching. Wish the videos were in HD though.

Amazing pictures. The pic of the crashed chopper gives some idea as to what lengths these guys go to get exclusive pics.

Don't expect this to be broadcasted in India.
You can find the daily highlights easily on the Internet.
