The one I could think of at the moment is 1.3 Multijet unit from Ritz.

2. which is better fiber or steel work when it comes to making exterior body panel when we want good details
Sure it has to be steel, but fibre can prove to be easier when it comes to dents, scratches etc.

3. does nay body have idea how much contessa would cost in second hand market
Ditto to what KK Dutta said above. The price can range from anywhere Rs.50,000 onwards, depending upon various factors like condition, year of manufacture, number of owners, etc.

Drive Safe,

Fibre glass thing has to be done on steel mould!!

contessa is available from 50k , but the isuzu engine that it has in diesel is one hell good engine , but i fear some parts are difficult to get!


Power and good FE and affordable cheap spares - safari dicor engine set .

Harey bhai..! Knock the owner's door this midnight & get the car to your parking yard. 25k is a nice deal even if the car is in scrap condition (considering the steel rate)

Jokes apart, for her age I doubt the life left on her. If the body is ok, close your eyes and get her home.

All the very best.

Try getting a used 1.9 or 1.3 Multijet diesel, the other option which remains is the 1.4TDCi from Fiesta, but the Ford engine will definitely cost a bomb. If you are looking for a new engine, you have quite a number of options.

This is Ilango's department, so i wont get into this:smile:

new engine will cost more . already people with whom i have talked about this modification has gave me 3.5L for this modification .

Today or tomorrow i will meet them personally to talk about this project

torque ( reply i got from him was very good . He advised me only go for project if you can spend else its no use of spending money if car started falling apart before 4years )

So where are you sourcing the engine from? If you are looking for a used engine, then DDiS/Multi jet engine would be the best bet.

the great mayapuri market . you can find any engine there BMW,merc,m800,dicor ,etc . you name engine is there .
if getting enigne is so easy, then do add TDCi engine of Fusion/Ikon to your list. But be adviced it generates a meagre 68PS of power which may feel sluggish under Contessa skin.

A picture will help us to advise you better.

No offence intended; although the modification looks great but I don’t understand why most of the people go behind to make Contessa look alike to Mustang or Camaro. Sure, this car has potential to be modified as some popular muscle car but why not rather modify by retaining the actual looks and majesty of Contessa?

autopsyche (no reply from his side till now and he will be last person i will ask )

Performance Auto and Autopsyche can help. I have spoken to Arush for a few things; he was prompt and helpful in answering the queries.

tell you truth i have no interest contessa only reason i got interested in it because this car has potential of modification and its cheap to get . Also you can't build custom car as you will end up paying large amount of money just to make it street legal . So other way is to modify current car .

about why to make it look like camero or mustage as i am not rich guy who can buy and even run them so atleast i can fulfil my desire of owing same looking car or some what same .
