Skoda student roadster took to the roadsSeptember 12, 2020
The Czech automaker has published a video testing the Slavia concept roadster and its ideological prototype Skoda 1100 OHC.
In a new video, the company has demonstrated the continuity between the 1957 track sports car and the 2020 sports car of the year. The world rally champion in the WRC 2 class Jan Kopecky took turns driving the modern Skoda Slavia roadster and then the Skoda 1100 OHC on the track.
Skoda Academy students borrowed the idea of an aerodynamic hump behind the seats from the 1100 OHC prototype for the Slavia roadster.
The Slavia roadster is built on the basis of the seriously modified Scala hatchback. The car has lost the second row of seats, got sports seats, brakes from the Octavia RS and massive 20-inch wheels from the Kodiaq RS crossover. The cabin also has room for a 2250 W speaker system.
It is worth dwelling separately on the name of the prototype, because the name does not refer to the racing ancestor, but to the name of the bicycles, which were produced by the founders of the brand Vaclav Laurin and Vaclav Clement. Skoda is not planning a serial production of the Slavia roadster.
