The exterior is cool,but I would prefer one in black.Again the orange interior looks gay.

Actually I read somewhere that these guys will customize the vehicle according to your taste and it will cost in the range of 3-4.5lacs.

The Scorpio lifestyle looks amazing. But the price tag is too heavy.

Are these brand new cars or can we give them our scorpio to modify?

Somehow on seeing the website, one is impressed as well as disapointed:

1) Impressed by the quality of work and the creativity and the Idea of doing it.

2) Dissapointed by a) The luxury / comfy option on the Scorpio just don't make sense due to the type of vehicle it is - Instead they could have given the scorpio a bit of Xylo style interiors. b) If someone wanted space and customized interiors then the innova with Carnation inteiors by DC are the best value. c) the Bolero platform is all show and no Go. The Engines dissapoint. d) the mods to the Scorpio are mild compared to the ones to the Bolero. e) Would love to see a top end Scorpio AT 4X4 being modified taking the pricing to even 13L for a unique and very high end vehicle.

IMO the headlamps looks hideous, the original headlamps would have looked better.
If this bolero doesn't come with CRDe engine and 4x4, its an absolute waste.

I wonder what it takes for M&M not to come up with such loud designs for the front ? That said this really looks alien and I doubt if there would be any takers in the Indian market. Keep it simple period !!

Infractions: 0/1 (5)

mostly cosmetic and hardly functional it seems?
looks like they are playing true to form - they always tend to focus on looking tough rather than actually being tough.
wonder why their design team is so "bling obsessive"

i have come across just one person who owns a Bolero Commando and i have not come across a single person who has owned a creation from this dept of MM.

i dont know why this dept still exists in MM?

They gifted a Bolero Stinger to Indian Cricket team member Gautam Gambhir, but never seen one on the road.

none of their vehicles have been ever seen on the road by anyone!

i hope JS Nanda ji is reading this. (the whole dept has a DC leftover).

I wish Mahindra customization would consider creating a *Rubicon* edition. A true off-roader, rather than bling bling....

Given below are two responses to my enquiry for Scorpio CEO (on June 03, 2008):

Dear Sir,
Its a pleasure to have heard from you. Request you to kindly note the responses in bold as under:

1. What is the rear leg-room (space between the 'bar' and the rear seat)? The rear leg-room in the picture looks small.
- The overall body shell is the same as the Scoprio and no increase in the length and width of the vehicle has been made. The packaging is so done keeping in mind the luxurious travel of our Customers such as you. Would recommend a test drive for the same. The demo vehicle would be in Mumbai by the 15th June
2. Travelling in the back seat of a typical Scorpio is a nightmare. Have you done anything to mitigate that (the see-saw ride)?
- the rear suspension has been fine tuned for better ride and handling. However, one must keep in mind that it is a limo concept on an SUV. Would again recommend a test drive for the same. The demo vehicle would be in Mumbai by the 15th June
3. Where is the luggage space (How many litres of luggage space)?
- since the concept is based on a limo city ride; the only condition luggage would be there would be while travelling to the airport. This could be placed either on the floor area in the passenger cabin or in the co-driver zone
4. No head-rests for the rear seat?
- the seat is a motorized recliner hence there was no possibility of mounting the same
5. I see that the rear seat is close to the back-door. What have you done to prevent the impact if some vehicle hits from behind?
- though the top end of the back rest is close to the back door, the lower ends have enough space since we have the motors and other electricals as well behind the rear seat. The position is same as the standard production 8 seater 3rd front facing seat
6. I would have preferred a back-facing rear seat immediately behind the driver(I would feel a lot safer).
- in a limo as it is the passenger envelope is encapsulated due to the partition, hence it does give a closterphobic effect. Hence, it is important to physchologically travel in the same direction as the motion of the vehicle. We have also provided a full time camera on LCD screen
Looking forward to serve you
Thanking you,

With Warm Regards,

Yours Truly,

Straight out of the 'Pimp my Ride' show! I kinda like it!. Adds that bling bling factor to it. All you need is some diamond chains, diamond rings on every finger, wear jeans so low, it appears to almost fall off and a NY Yankees shirt/hat, a cigar in the mouth and cruise around with 'Ghetto' playing in the background. For the love of god!
