The old yellow yeller with dollops of yellow pancake makeup has to be a DC job!. A perfect vehicle for the Halloween Parade.

Didn't like the design at all, right from the first pic it is a big let down, cheap way of mounting a Winch, the storage roll cage, what is the purpose? No 4wd and calling it extreme is the biggest joke of all, all this wasn't enough, so they painted it Yellow and Black, nice Taxi colour for the Mumbaikars.

The only good part in this is the Cycle carrier and the Jeerycan installation, I am just talking on looking at the pictures, how it may be while driving will be known only after T.D.

Instead the one's posted by Parm are looking much better. Overall I would anyday prefer a Tata Xenon then this so called extreme scorpio.

Interesting. The interior is horrendous though, my eyes would hurt after some time seeing all that yellow infront of me!

I wonder if 'bits' from this extreme Scorpio can be carried over to the conventional Scorpio. The claddings(same color) and wheels would look great on a normal black/white Scorpio just as much.

Is this offered too? Not the full blown modifications but just certain parts.

Well the yellow colour is quite indigestable (esp. the colour theme of the dashboard).

Trust the M&M customisation department to come out with something this funny!
here is photo of a better looking Scorpio:
Hey the vehicle has the winch in the right position! (Remember someone share his experience of having the winch very low to get more pull off the vehicle)

No 4WD, snorkel in an extreme looking made for off-roading! Seems more of an display model than an actual deal maker!

+1 to that. The winch mounting is so pathetic that I really suspect if it could take the stresses it would be exposed to while winching.

I think it does have 4WD, I saw another pic on facebook which show 4WD switch. or is it something different

Some of the modifications does look good, but yellow color sucks

i take my words back about 4WD not being offered, my apology for that overlook, but i stick to my other comments!

with that standard OE fitted bumper i would wonder what kind of punishment it would stand up to in 'Xtreme' conditions?

I stand corrected on the 4WD, but all other comments remain the same!

if this job is done by mahindra customisation, then the bolero attitude does have a Snorkel, so i think on request, they can provide one on this too.

The colour combination on the interiors is horrendous. I think Mahindra need to stop this push they are giving the scorp even though their new SUV is on the horizon.

One question, how are the costs and charges Mahindra Customisation charges for such jobs? I mean can someone compare with a full on customisation from an aftermarket shop?

Its better if Mahindras offer these "xtreme" elements as mods to existing / new owners, will lead to a bit more widening of the already existing smiles on the owners' faces. What say Dr. Goenka ?

Joseph, the Scorp still sells better than decent numbers. They are not pushing it. However, they are trying to get experimental at the cost of looking pretty mental.

Their new vehicle is more of a front wheel drive cross over than a SUV.

To top it all they are going to US with the Scorp. So unfortunately for you, this one's definitely not going for some more time.
