You might have him confused with Sudhakar, who made those crazy looking cars from his in-house company called Sudha Cars.

Godspeed,

Alok

It's from Hyderabad for sure .. Saw it on Minister Road .. it's a monster .. I think the person has even changed his suspension recently .. the ground clearance of the vehicle is atleast a couple of feet !!

This one is brilliant work, especially if the fact that no computers were used while doing the design. I showed these Scop pictures to my German colleagus over here, and their perception about the Indian automotive scene changed drastically within minutes. They were thinking its still in the bullock cart driven ages...
Kishan, you certainly deserve some deep appreciation man...!
M&M, Wake up! redesign your flagship model!

HE HE, that was a little overstated, but yeah the job is good, lot of work gone in, but I doubt if that car exceeds 80 KMPH anymore, too much weight for not such a responsive engine.
However someone took the initiative at least,

Not really, it takes a lot to be an offroader other than a powerful engine, has lot do do with Chasis which is pretty average for Scorpio, but for the price its a decent buy.

Even the BMW X5 has a great engine but it's pretty bad offroad, The Top Gear Reveiw by JC made the car look like a big joke, but that car serves its purpose, I mean how often does anyone offroad with their SUVs abroad. In india , road offroad, all the same

Hey all,

Luckily i got to meet this guy, Kishan Lohiya, last week. He is a close friend's close friend and we were discussing his Scorpio. HE said he has been working on this design and mod from past 3 years. He had to get the Tyres and Alloys airlifed from the US and just the tyres and alloys cost him around 2.5lks! He has ready offer for 50-55lks for this vehicle too. Only thing , his personality isnt like his Scorpio. He is a nice guy, average height, but quiet slim. For a driver of a scorpio like this, i thought he would be a more bulky one.

Soon, hopefully i will have a drive of that, and then will come the interior pics and all. I heard there is a very good music system too in it.!

Also, as of now, the car can touch upto 110kmph
