@Pram....Dude, believe me, in person, these cars look magnificent. The Claddings might look bad to you, but to me, they look butch and perfect....To each its own!!

@Frank, as i siad, they are available on order. And they cost a bit more than usual. Also, india is not a developed market for custom built cars.......

These vehicles usually command a premuim of 2-3 lakhs above the OTR price of a Normal Scorpio/Bolero

Hence the low numbers

thats the issue i wanted to bring up. less interest by mm in getting these niche vehicles on the road. i feel the demand for these will soar if more of them are seen on the road. thats where the 'even i want one' factor creeps in!

I don't think too much of the modded Scorpio, but LOVE the Inspira. There was a discussion on this 4x4 elsewhere on the forum too. If only Mahindra marketed their customisation department better, I am certain it would have a lot more takers.

The Scorpio is good but not great enough. Side cladding should be made more eliptical.Otherwise nice execution.

I like The Invader done up by Mahindra Customs especially in a greenish-grey colour.

Saw a Getaway today on my way to work. Seems like if you chop off some of the extra long overhang it looks a lot like the scorpio derivative (platoon) featured here on this thread.

The ugly wheel arch cladding on the Platoon is missing on the gateway (thank God)


Cheers

The wheel arch claddings looks seriously wierd!
Who would fix a squarish cladding on a circular wheel arch?

Frankly I dont think the white scorpio ( aka platoon) is that ravishing, however the inspira is quite good.
