The Mahindra Scorpio is among the best selling SUVs in India. First launched in 2002, the Scorpio became an instant hit and still attracts a lot of customers due to its rugged looks and value for money prospects. It also is a capable off-road tool and comes with fully functional 4×4 drivetrain complete with low ratio gearbox.Now Nagpur based NYC Customisations has modified a Mahindra Scorpio into a complete beast of a vehicle. Take a look at the video below which shows the SUV in its full glory.
The Scorpio is already a pretty good looking SUV with great road presence and an intimidating stance. However, this one featured here takes the word butch to a whole next level. Owned by Nikhil Yadav, NYC Customisations has done many unique mod jobs in past and this Scorpio is amongst the best among them. Also, note that the engine and other mechanicals have not been tampered with and this is a complete aesthetic mod job. Let’s now get to know all that has been done on this wild Mahindra Scorpio.
It is a 2006 model Scorpio and gets a black paint shade all over. The front end looks quite aggressive, almost ready to bite if set free. The bumper has been replaced with an off-road spec unit that comes with integrated LED DRLs along with twin auxiliary lights mounted on top. A large metal grille with verticle slats takes the centre stage that which has been blacked out for further visual drama.
The headlights now come surrounded by LED rings that double up as indicators and DRLs as per need. The bonnet gets a stylish metal frame along with a bump in between which further put a seal to the Scorpio’s rugged looks. The butch looking tires are 33-inch off-road spec units shod onto multi-spoke alloys painted in green. Custom fenders add muscle on to the SUV and it gets roof mounted orange lights. A snorkel has been placed on it to increase its water wading capacity.
The side cladding is also a custom job and adds to the overall look of the vehicle. Coming to the rear end, a jerry can paint in green indicates towards its off-road build and adds character to the overall look. The tail lights have been blacked out while a new custom bumper has replaced the stock unit. All the custom metal work on the SUV like the scuff plate, bumper, side cladding among others is fabricated in-house by the mod guys.
Further, this Scorpio now features twin tailpipes that adds sportiness to its build. For enhanced utility, the roof has been fitted with a carrier that can be used to carry any kind of load when on a trip. Without a doubt, it is one of the best off-road type mod jobs we have seen on a Scorpio. Hat tip to Nikhil and NYC Customisation for turning a regular Scorpio into this beast.
