Indian-origin man offers world's most expensive car wash

Thirty-year-old car enthusiast Gurcharn Sahota takes up to 250 hours to systematically clean each vehicle with 100 cleaning fluids and wax and he ends up polishing the car inside and out five times.

He uses a computerised microscope to take a close look the bodywork for the minutest scratch that is not visible to the eye, Daily  Telegraph reported Tuesday.

"When I was younger I washed neighbours' cars and my dad's car whenever I could. They never paid me, I loved it so much I did it for free. Things have built up from there and now I'm cleaning some of the fastest, most powerful sports cars in the world.

"People come to me and they want the best treatment going for their car. If you've got a 500,000 pound car then a few grand for cleaning is worth it. Sometimes I'll work through the night to get a car looking absolutely pristine. They're world class motors that deserve a world class wash," Sahota was quoted as saying.

Sahota lives with his parents - Gurbinder, 55, and Amarjit, 53 - in Derbyshire and he has converted the double garage into a workshop, complete with a Formula 1-style pit for scrubbing the underneath of cars.

"I treat every car like an individual project, I want them to leave my workshop looking better than they have ever done. I have my processes which I go through and I am meticulous about each one.

"I just want perfection. Finishing is the best part because you know what it was like when you started. That gives me great satisfaction."
