The advent of social media has been so phenomenal that a lot of major auto companies are using its reach to strengthen the bond with buyers, prospective buyers and enthusiasts alike. Remember KTM teasing us with the date for the Duke 390 launch? The kind of response it generated was mind-numbing.

Now, Mahindra has gone the Facebook way. Earlier it had shared a 'coming soon' teaser image, on its Facebook page, of the Scorpio Special Edition. Mahindra has now confirmed the launch of the Scorpio Special Edition, via the World Wide Web. It is priced at Rs 11.88 lakh, ex-Delhi

The changes in the Special Edition are simply aesthetic with a few feature add-ons. It gets additions like dual tone leather seats, leather wrapped steering wheel and gear knob, an integrated roof-mounted DVD player with a 9" screen, glossy wood trim on the dashboard, door handles and centre console, blackened scuff plate, chrome alloys, dual front airbags, 'Special Edition' badging and decals representing chequered flags.

No changes have been made to the powertrain. The Scorpio is powered by the 2.2-litre Turbocharged oil-burner that delivers 122PS and 290Nm of peak torque.

There has been no word on the pricing yet, but one can expect a premium of around Rs.20,000 over the standard Scorpio. In the month of July, the Scorpio was able to sell more units than the Duster. The Special Edition seems like Mahindra's move to garner more interest considering that the festive season is almost here. Mahindra is also working on a new Scorpio and we might just be able to see it at the 2014 Auto Expo.
