Gurcharn Sahota details cars. Although the term “detail” is used loosely in this case. What’s the most you’ve ever paid someone for a detail? $200? $300? Maybe $1,000, if you’ve got an Aston Martin DB4GT that you’re entering in a Concours event? Well, if you take advantage of Sahota’s services, be prepared to spend up to $10,000 for one of his trademark “supercar baths.”

Far more than a standard detail, Sahota’s services include a pre-wash with precisely measured, pH balanced water, a micrometer to measure paint thickness for just the right amount of buffing and/or wet-sanding, and Brazilian wax that costs more per tin than many compact cars. But if your vehicle of choice is a Zonda, Enzo or a Bugatti SuperSport, one of Sahota’s Baths can be worth far more than the asking price.

“If one of my customers wants to respray a million pound car it could cost them up to £100,000. Give it to me for a couple of weeks, I’ll charge a fraction of the price and it will look even better.”

Sahota adds that his services aren’t just for cars exhibiting wear-and-tear from being used:

“If you give me a new car I can make it look better.”
