Default Lighting or normal problem

I have a small problem.
I started modelling a Pagani Zonda and I fell into a rather odd problem that I haven't seen before, but on the front fender I have a black spot.
My two sided lighting is turned off and all the normals are correct and I am still in the early stage off blocking the car out.
If anyone knows what is going on please let me know I don't want to run in problems at a later stage.
Any help or comment and suggestion is very appreciated.

Thank you Michael

Check to make sure your verts are merged and that you don't have any extra unwanted vertices lying around anywhere.
