personally i dont think the contessa limo as wacky. No strech limo comes strech from factory except Lincoln. Most Limos are made in local body shops. The only thing that does not look good (its not wacky though) is the rims. Else looks acceptable to me. You must see a Sonata made into Limo by DC. If you see that you will definately put it in this section.

Btw is that Vinyl top?

the conti-limo looks really nice IMO. Looks very well maintained and the quality of workmanship seems to be pretty good .

I'd so totally buy the stretched conti if offered for something around 1.5!!!
Besides, the limousine mod on this particular vehicle is acceptable bearing in mind the default size of the car, which of course is LARGE!!!

+1 MARCUS. Conti LIMO looks quite good and well maintained. Some good multispoke chrome finished alloys and Change of front grille to chrome plated one will make it look much better.

This car looks really cool. The Contessa could have been developed better by HM. They chose to stick with the India name tarnishing lump of tin on wheels instead.I hope this car finds a good home.

Nice job done, IMO. Clean finish, and the only thing that ought to be done is paint the full body black & thrown on better alloys. Presto!! You'd have a decent limo at your service!

Conti has got great rubbers on it.

Vijay,

Did you happen to see a modified swift also at this place. Two days back was passing through panchwati autos and just had a glimpse of it. Swift was looking pretty awesome. Any idea if that is also for sale over there

if you are saying of white swift with 205/60/r15 rubbers, thats not for sale but its of the owner of that place, if not havent seen any swift on sales there yet, but they have few endavours and one toyota corolla and one toyota prado on sale.While i was there they sold one audi A4 for 18L, was pretty good deal and audi was in good condition too.

That's a neat job. Very well done.

Just curious, what would be the turning radius for this guy?

Hi Vijay,

Do you know these guys, are they reputable enough. Am looking for a used Scorpio/accent. Any idea if they might be having it for sale.

Thanks for your reply

Looks to be elegantly executed. The same color combination on a regular Conty body would have looked even more smashing.
