We see aftermarket car modifications on a daily basis and slapping the logo of a premium luxury car on a ‘regular’ car is a rather common affair.
In a bizarre case, a Mahindra Scorpio owner installs an Audi logo and grille on his SUV. Scorpio is one of the most popular SUVs in our market. It has been around for ages. People have loved it due to its ruggedness and road presence. It remains the quintessential utilitarian SUV that we have all come to love and appreciate. On the other hand, Audi is an aspirational brand for a vast majority of people, not only in India but across the globe. Hence, we often see people replacing the badge on their cars with an Audi badge.

Audi Logo and Grille Installed on Mahindra Scorpio
The video has been shared on Instagram by pravesh_0011. It captures a man driving a white Mahindra Scorpio and parking it on the side of the road. He emerges from the SUV and says he finally bought an Audi. He is, obviously, referring to the large grille and the logo he has installed at the front. This large grille is fixed on top of the original grille that the SUV comes with. In all fairness, it doesn’t look out of place, and people could still easily deduce that this is a Scorpio through and through.

This incident highlights the length to which people go to make their vehicles stand out. Moreover, this also showcases the talent that aftermarket car modification houses possess and they could fit such a large grille on a car that it doesn’t belong to. There are also numerous other cases where they can slap body panels on cars to make them look like completely different cars. But note that almost all modifications that change the nature of any vehicle are illegal in India.
