Skoda Citigo Rally Concept
At the largest tuning event featuring vehicles of the Volkswagen Group, ŠKODA AUTO showed exciting concept cars.
The village of Reifnitz is a traditional meeting place for tuning fans. Every year in May, one may experience the pure excitement about automobiles, this year being the 31st time the meeting is held. This meeting is counted among the largest and most important events of its kind. As the third largest brand of the Volkswagen Group, ŠKODA presents new model highlights to fans as well. For the concert highlight in the evening, ŠKODA has created a special surprise. The music produced by the almost 100,000 Watt strong sound equipment will be mixed by a DJ in a “ŠKODA DJ Car”. This vehicle was especially designed by the ŠKODA design team for the car show at Wörthersee. A team of journalists and Czech celebrities in special ŠKODA models will drive from Prague to the foothills of the Austrian Alps – among them the two Škoda rally champions Jan Kopecký and Juho Hänninen.
“They say the driver’s seat has the best view of Wörthersee,” says Jan Kopecký, ŠKODA Motorsport factory driver. “That’s why I’m excited to be able to experience in person the legendary atmosphere at Wörthersee this year.”
The creations based on the new ŠKODA Citigo are sure to fascinate attendees at ŠKODA’s stand in Reifnitz. The design of the “ŠKODA Citigo Rally” takes its dynamics from ŠKODA rally cars. Its front end impresses with a massive bumper as well as a generous air intake and spoiler. The car’s rear end is marked by a centrally positioned exhaust end pipe and the down-force wing extending the car’s roofline. Low-profile tires on forged 18-inch rims promise stability and uncompromising traction.
Besides the “ŠKODA Citigo Rally”, another highlight is the appearance of the “ŠKODA Citigo DJ Car”. Its rear end widens behind the ‘B’ pillars to create an open stage for the DJ inside the car. The “ŠKODA Citigo DJ Car” will see live action when DJs put on dance music for several thousands of fans on the center stage at night.
