What We Think
We can’t deny that this revamped Contessa has an incredibly striking appearance. It’s transformed an already attractive vintage sedan into something even more impressive. However, it’s essential to inform our readers that most car modifications are against the law in India and can result in a fine. It’s worth noting that these regulations can differ from one city to another. To stay on the right side of the law, it’s advisable to consult your local Regional Transport Office (RTO) before making any customizations to your vehicle. You might also consider having any approved modifications officially documented on your car’s registration certificate to ensure everything is above board.
