Right from the very first Scorpio launched in 2002, butch and bold have been integral elements of this SUV’s design. A mega hit, the sheer number of Scorpios on Indian roads mean that a fair share of modified examples are around. Today we have yet another modified Scorpio, one that’s butch yet very funky due to the red paint job it sports. And that’s just the start of a long list of modifications.
The front end of this SUV has received special attention. The grille is a horizontal slat item, one that adds to the width of the vehicle, making it look more planted. The headlamps have been blacked out, and projectors have been added.
There’s the now-customary LED DRL integrated into each headlamp while two fog lamps sit right at the top of the bonnet. The front bumper is a completely new item with a a mesh underneath. The bumper also gets a stylish skid plate that’s more form than function.
The bonnet has been sculpted with a hood scoop and two air intakes while a snorkel snakes out from the extreme right. The mod job at front is topped off by a fender mirror, which is also a functional accessory.
This Scorpio rides on Hankook tyres sitting on wider, offset steel rims. The flanks of the SUV are more or less stock, and even the running boards have been retained. Rain visors are the only changes. The top of the vehicle gets roof marker lights while the roof rails carry a roof box.
At the rear, the stock tail lamps have been swapped out for the newer units that are standard on the facelifted Scorpio. The rear bumper gets an extension attached. To sum it up, this is one Scorpio that has enough to attract more than one glance.
