To coincide with the launch of the third-gen Octavia vRS' ad, Skoda has prepared what they call the "vRS Mega Man-Pram" baby carrier.
We checked the calendar and it's not April Fools' Day so this Skoda-branded baby carrier is for real. It was created to star in the 2013 Octavia vRS promo and comes with massive 20-inch alloy wheels which are actually bigger than what the car has. These wheels are covered in all-terrain tires and stop efficiently thanks to oversized brake calipers with high-spec brakes including brake lights. The Skoda baby carrier received a hydraulic suspension, high-beam headlamp, anti-stress push-bar grips, wing mirrors and sports-style upholstery.
Skoda commissioned a survey of 1,000 dads who were asked if they would spend more time with the baby if they had a "higher spec and more stylish buggy." 76 percent of them said they would be inclined to spend more time if the baby carrier would be beefed-up.
