"We are thrilled to customize the Scorpio Getaway Lifestyle concept for Bhaichung which, for him, represents the fulfillment of a long cherished childhood dream. With its sporty, stylish looks and go anywhere capability, the Scorpio Getaway Lifestyle is the perfect offroad vehicle for those who seek thrill and adventure. A high degree of customisation also makes it the ideal choice for Bhaichung to make a personalised style statement," said Mr. Vivek Nayer, Senior Vice President - Marketing, Automotive Sector, Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd.
"My love affair with offroad vehicles began with Mahindra. I grew up in the hills of Sikkim and one of my fondest childhood memories is of my father and me going for long drives through tea plantations and rugged terrain in a Mahindra. Ever since then I have always dreamt of owning an offroad vehicle that would be suitable for both the city as well as the hills. Life has now come full circle and I am absolutely delighted to receive my very own, personalised Scorpio Getaway Lifestyle concept from Mahindra which will help me relive the days of my youth," said Indian skipper, Bhaichung Bhutia.
A recipient of the prestigious Padma Shri and Arjuna Awards, Bhaichung Bhutia is already a legendary figure in Indian football and captain of the national team. In 1999, he was voted Asian (AFC) Player of the Month and also received the Sikkim State Award for his contribution to the sport.
The Mahindra Scorpio Getaway Lifestyle concept is built on the Mahindra Scorpio Getaway platform which is available in both 2WD and 4WD variants and is powered by the technologically advanced 115 hp CRDe engine. It is also BS-III compliant. Customised body paint, along with styled wheel arches and auxiliary lamps give the Mahindra Scorpio Lifestyle a sporty stance. This is further enhanced by a motorised sunroof and stainless steel guards for the front, rear and sides of the vehicle. The cargo bay with a motorised cover comes in handy on long camping trips as it provides ample storage space and also protects cargo in case of rain.
The vehicle's imposing exterior is aptly complemented by plush, custom painted interiors with custom stitched leather upholstery. Additional features include an MP3 music system with speakers, an iPod docking station and a reverse camera with sensors.
