Mahindra Scorpio is one of the most popular SUVs in the Indian market for a long time now. While modifications are strictly banned in India, there are still many heavily modified vehicles on the roads. one the rarest modification jobs that are done on the Indian cars is transforming it into the limousines. In the past, we have seen a few vehicles that have been transformed into limousines. Here is one more such job on the Mahindra Scorpio. The result is quite interesting.
This modification job is done by Magneto11, who has worked on many transformation jobs in the past. However, this is the first limousine transformation by the modification garage. This Mahindra Scorpio has been stretched and turned into a luxurious SUV with the glass windows in between. The car retains the five-door set-up and the stretched part in the middle gets black windows. Apart from limousine conversion, the front and the rear of the vehicle looks the same. It, however, gets new chrome 17-inch alloy wheels.
The cabin of the stretched Mahindra Scorpio has been completely transformed and it now looks no less than a discotheque. The vehicle gets strobe lights, a long table that acts like a bar and the flooring has been replaced with a new soft-touch carpet. The cabin looks very plush from the inside with large windows and curtains and sofas. There is also a 32-inch LCD screen with DVD player that can be used for entertainment on the go. The vehicle gets an ambient light system that changes the whole look of the vehicle and the cabin does not feel like it belongs to a car.
The main cabin is separated from the driver’s cabin but they are interconnected through an intercom. The driver can see the rear of the vehicle through a camera that remains always on and acts as an ORVM.
The video does not say how long the Scorpio is but it seems like it has been stretched by two times the length of the original vehicle. Mahindra Scorpio is based on a ladder frame that makes such modification jobs possible. Such a transformation job on a vehicle with monocoque chassis like the XUV500 will be extremely difficult. However, it should be noted that such modification jobs are illegal in India since they can be dangerous and can break down. Such modifications weaken the integrity and strength of the vehicle and it does not comply with the regulations laid by the Indian government.
In the past, such modified vehicles have been seized by the cops. A very popular such modification based on Mahindra Scorpio was seized by Mumbai Police and RTO a few years back for breaking the rules. However, such modified vehicles can be imported by paying a large amount of taxes in legal ways. There is a Chrysler 300C limousine that operates legally in India and was imported. Many such Mercedes sedans have been imported and are available on rent for special occasions.
