Mahindra Scorpio is an extremely popular SUV in the Indian market. There are many modified examples of the SUV available in the Indian market but this modification is rather an unusual one. Here is a dancing Scorpio and a speechless cop, as you can see in the video below.
What is happening here?
The “Dancing Scorpio” seen in the video seems to be showing off its skills in front of a UP Police vehicle with the cop standing in front of him. The modified Scorpio is jumping on the front wheels continuously giving an impression of dancing. It is something similar to what we see in many modified cars in the USA but it is a rare sight in India.
The Scorpio seen in the video is not a regular one. It has been modified to make it jump. It features hydraulics attached to the front suspension that is controlled through a pump. The pump controls the hydraulics on the shock absorbers making the SUV jump continuously. The pump can be activated from inside the vehicle and it can give the impression that the car is dancing.
However, it may affect the car’s front axle and constant jumps like this can make the wheels out of alignment. It is not known if the vehicle has been booked by the police standing in the background but such modifications are not legal and the vehicle can be seized.
The Mahindra Scorpio has become a living legend in the Indian car market. It has been around for a long while now and Mahindra recently launched a facelifted version of the SUV with a bumped up power in the top-end variant. The Scorpio is available in many different configurations and it also gets a 4X4 drive layout with the 4-Low transfer case, which makes it quite capable. The Scorpio is priced from Rs. 9.34 lakhs to Rs. 16.34 lakhs (ex-showroom, Delhi).
