Do You Remember Me – Hindusthan Contessa

The Hindustan Contessa was a model of car which was manufactured by Hindustan Motors (HM) of India from 1984 to 2002.

There are a handful of enthusiasts that maintain Contessas in original condition.

To them, only Contessa can be hailed as a true “Indian Muscle Car” owing to its rear-wheel drive platform and coke-bottle styling
When introduced in 1983, it was one of the few Indian manufactured luxury cars in the market.

By the late eighties, Hindustan had tied-up with Isuzu of Japan and started manufacturing their 1.8 L 4ZB1 petrol engine and matching five-speed gearbox for installation in the Contessa.
