Recently launched Mahindra Scorpio N was one of the most anticipated launches from Mahindra this year. Like usual, Mahindra surprised everyone with the pricing as well. The price for the new Scorpio N starts at Rs 11.99 lakh, ex-showroom and the top-end diesel manual version costs Rs 19.49 lakh, ex-showroom. Prices for the automatic version would be announced soon. Ever since the pictures and videos of Mahindra Scorpio N have surfaced online, we have started seeing several render images of the SUV in different avatars. Here we have a render video where the Scorpio N has been reimagined as an extreme off-road SUV.
The video has been uploaded by Bimble Designs on their YouTube channel. In this video, the artist has completely customised or modified the Scorpio N as per his imagination. Starting with the front, the grille at the front has been completely blacked out. All the chrome elements on the grille have removed as well. The headlamps are still twin projector LED units however, the LED DRLs are not visible in the rendered version. The stock bumper of the SUV has been replaced with an aftermarket off-road metal bumper. There is an electric winch at the front as well. The bumper also extends to the lower part of the car to form a metal skid plate.

Coming to the side profile, the dual tone alloy wheels on the Scorpio N has been replaced with an aftermarket alloy wheel with chunky looking off-road spec tyre wrapped around it. This has increased the overall ground clearance of the SUV and the approach angle has also improved because of the bumper. The lower window chrome garnish on the SUV has been replaced as well. There is a not foot board or rock sliders installed on the car. The video does not show what all modifications have been done to the rear of the car however, we assume that the rear bumper might have also been modified.
On the roof, the metal cross bar has been installed on the stock roof rail and a luggage box has been installed on it. Other than this, no other modifications are seen on the car. The artist has only made minor changes to enhance the overall look of the Scorpio N and the results are just beautiful. The SUV looks like a proper off-roader and ready to take on any type of terrain. The blacked out exterior along with the modifications give it a rugged look.
Mahindra Scorpio N is offered with both petrol and diesel engine options. Only the diesel automatic and manual variant of the SUV will comes with 4WD system. The petrol version of the Scorpio N is powered by a 2.0 litre turbocharged unit that generates 203 PS & 370 Nm in manual and 380 Nm of peak torque.
