Keep going the good work. Hope the budget is less when you opting for Skoda V6, is it easy to source one form the used market? I doubt!!!

Nice project, guys!
I can't wait to see the progress on this one!

More often than not, i've seen heavily modded cars *trying* to tear up the streets here.
These cars have elaborate bumpers and grills and somehow, they almost always tend to overdo it.

This makes the vehicle look quite bad. Please, please try not to over-indulge, in the cosmetics here!

Unless you really want to!

Going by the CBZ conceptualized on paper & what has come out in reality, I can say that this contessa is going to come out well & turn a lot of heads. The Toyota V8 sounds yummy. Real muscle car territory. What may this project cost finally ??

Are you doing this commercially or a one off for yourself ??

All the best for your project.





Cheers

hey there everyone... I would really want to point out that i am not making a camaro replica. the picture of the red camaro was just to show how the body lines are gonna be. i am not a believer in replicating. so i guess i would like to say that i am rightly working on a new age - modern contessa. cheers!

Diplomatic!! , Any ways wish to see this come up nice, i am not being cynical but most of such projects have ended up in our classifieds section with obscene pricing. No doubt about your capabilities, All the best.
