Got this modded conti while searching over the internet.. don't know if anyone has posted this before! Don't know what the owner wanted to do with it.. a Skoda? Merc? It has a sun roof too!








EDITED: This car is for sale.. the owner uploaded these pictures last month.

I was using 205 55 15's, no scraping problems even in lock positions. I was only aware of the BMW rims but some else had pointed out that Skoda rims might fit but have not tried. However to achieve that had to completely custom build the suspension.

thanks for the advice sir.
what mods did you do to your suspension ?
i have got a clear advice from mr.Miyer, that 205 tyre width will scrape the suspension rods - panhard rods at the rear, and also will interfere in the wheel arches ?
can you please elaborate on your conti's suspension setup, sir ?
we would all be delighted to know more from your past experiments, so pls ....

i was under the assumption that contessa is a Indian made (designed and developed) vehicle till i read this thread....

i always wanted to my hands on it atleast once.but by the time i started driving (some 10yrs back) it became a rare car.

It is a superb car ,very comfortable i believe and heard from others.i ve never been in it
