Price Bulletproof Mahindra Scorpio
This YouTuber has turned his Scorpio completely bulletproof. This installation has cost him a whopping Rs 50 lakh. This might seem like a lot of money at the first glance and it is. But what you get in return might be priceless. Once you open the doors on this SUV, you will understand what has been done to make it bulletproof. The doors have become extremely heavy due to the bulletproof glass on the windows. The bulletproof windows are everywhere including the front, sides and the rear. The rear also houses a gate inside the boot made of steel. The owner mentions the problem of rusting at various places in the vehicle. The weight of the car has increased tremendously which is a bit of a problem for the engine. But the car still runs fine which is a testament to the engines of Mahindra.
Speaking of the engines, the Scorpio comes with a 2.2-litre diesel engine that makes 140 hp and 320 Nm of peak power and torque respectively. This engine comes mated to a sole 6-speed manual transmission. The higher trims also get a 4×4 drive system. The next-gen Scorpio is also about to make its debut very soon. It will feature Mahindra’s 1.2-litre direct injection turbo petrol engine that will make 150 hp. There might also be the convenience of an automatic transmission with the upcoming SUV. But tell us how did you like this bulletproof Mahindra Scorpio with the price of around Rs 50 lakh.
