Default Hi Sparsh

Your car looks great, but even i feel there is something missing to give it a fine and clean job. May be a chromed bumper for the front( if required for back also), remove that spoiler, get the original one fixed.
But overall great work.

Front grill looks more of RR Phantom, please install the bumpers, front bumper will sure help you to get her a looks of Muscle car, as of now its looking more of RR Phanom due to big grill.

@Sparsh,
The car is done up well except for front end.Please go for a better grill.Also front skirts look too flat like a wall.Make it more curvy.A nice grill like the one on camaro can change the whole look.Rest of the car looks awesome!

@sparsh,
Please stick carbon fibre sheet on the chrome lip above the grill.These simple mods can transform it to one of the best looking contessas.

@ sparsh,
Also try to make the front skirts less wide so that the front end will look more sleek.Take a look a the bonnet and try to make the grill and front bumpers gel with it


Also reduce the width of the grill and add a vertical centre piece which will make the grill look like wings.And also Try to put a nice vintage font badge on the grill saying contessa or vauhall or something like that.This will work well if the grill is black.

@ sparsh,
I really liked your car and would like it to look perfect.Just think over it and imagine how this can be accomplished.The front end of a car determines it's character.

Tips
1)Take some muscle car pics.
2)Draw lines like a mesh and note the relative locations of various parts like headlights,grill etc and finalise your proportions
3)Look for minute details that can stand out and enhance the looks without disturbing the whole picture.
eg:Use of chrome very carefully,use of brushed aluminium look weherever possible etc.

My suggestions may be very stupid.But if it gives ideas i am happy.I have a lot of ideas for my Safari but could not do it because of lack of vitamin M.But here i am suggesting only because u have taken the step.

i must admit i am dissapointed, i guess i shouldnt have been all that excited wrt the teaser pics.

but i would say there's still a lot that can be improved. i would be happier to hear if you still have more plans for the car, cause the base is already strong.

Thank You for the great replies and suggestions everyone..

Yes the car is not yet complete now if only some one can put in all the ideas and put it into a photoshop mod.

The car is looking bland because there is no stickering yet.

I dont mind spending more as long a it makes my ride look good.

I still need to get the alloys.Alloys can change the whole look of the car.

The front mesh can be painted black not a problem.

nice work
imho the front end looks like a luxury limo cause of the grill and the rear spoiler and side air intakes are out of place why rear side air intakes when the engine is in the front and you have bonnet air scoops
all you need to do is remove the rear spoiler and rear side air intakes
paint the grill black and install the front bumper in 2 pieces like in the chevy pic posted
and some sexy alloys and rubber and you are done

Check out this Conti. Now this looks like a Muscle car from the side profile view, it was Psycho's car and I bought it from him. Most of the magic is done by the wheels and the colour. Pics are hijacked from psycho's gallery since i never took a clean pic of the car when it was mine.

Your car with better wheels would look a lot lot better. But the side scoops just don't gel well enough with the muscle look. The grill in the grey Conti is much better for a muscle look than the mesh type you have put on.

How about removing the black bumper from the grill area and keeping the rest. And instead putting vertical single line in black on the grill.
@BBS - can you please do a rendering of this one?

Sparsh, I realize you have put a lot of work into your car and it mostly looks good. But the scoops and the front grill look very weird to me. I really liked the look of Sankar's Conti. It looks mean and thug-ish. Yours looks more like a car a circus would use for stunts. I am sorry man.. :-(

Sparsh as long as you like it, it is fine just a couple of touch ups:

1) Paint the mesh of the grill instead of the chrome
2) get bigger rims and tyres

enjoy the ride.
