The car looks amazing .Don't like the colour at all, a limo only looks good in white or black. Better get a bus driver for that thing ,he would handle her well

Is it an RS, a petrol or a diesel? Methinks the extra grunt of the RS would be needed to haul that thing around.

And what's next? The M800 stretch?

Why? Why would people spoil a perfectly nice car?
IMHO, even the 150Bhp motor will be hard worked to move this..this thingy

Thumbs up hello

As indian is growing & shining ...the corporates & HNi's huge profits reflects their taste in this kind of strected limo...........I think it is better to modify some indisn vehicle rather than imported a costliest one...CAN ANY ONE GIVE IDEA of the cost...I rem one person from delhi(packaging industry tycoon) got two skoda modified into Limo by Dc...not one...two limo...one for mumbai & one for delhi........in black colour.

The front end of the car gel well with the limo looks. Rest of the job looks well done, although black would be the choice of color to go for.

No need, I can get high-res pics if you want. There are two Sonata 2.7's in Delhi & both are for hire (read marriage-sharriage etc.) and both have been done by Pandit. I've seen those 2 & two more 124's being stretched personally. Apart from that he's done Amby's, Contessa's etc. earlier.

Since the Skoda engine is pretty torquey it wouldn't be all that hard to pull this thing around. Maybe the guy just uses it for crusing while he enjoys the traffic jams sitting in the back

I had this general query , Do you really require a light/heavy driving license , or it is okay with regular four wheel one?.

I feel there should have a mandatory training for the drivers ( like Volvo ).
