SKODA Rapid SPORT Concept Car to Premiere at Wörthersee
At this year’s GTI Meeting at Wörthersee, ŠKODA’s Rapid SPORT concept car will be making its world premiere. The 32nd edition of the famous Volkswagen tuning event will take place from May 8 to May 12, 2013.
Every year, the long Ascension Day weekend sees up to 200,000 tuning fans meeting in the Austrian town of Reifnitz for the Volkswagen event. This year, ŠKODA will present them with ŠKODA Rapid SPORT as a highlight a particularly racy study of its ŠKODA Rapid sedan.
“The GTI Meeting is a Mecca for all tuning and motorsports fans,” says ŠKODA’s chairman of the board, Prof. Dr. h.c. Winfried Vahland. “With the ŠKODA Rapid SPORT, we will put a decidedly dynamic and emotional version of our new compact sedan Rapid on display for the first time. This way, we once again demonstrate the competence of our team with regard to sporty vehicles and motorsports,” adds Werner Eichhorn, ŠKODA board member for sales and marketing.
The Rapid SPORT is painted in the metallic colours ‘Corrida Red’ and ‘Steel Gray’ and sits on 19” alloy wheels. The front of the vehicle features spoilers and an enlarged air intake in the skirt. Generously dimensioned fenders and massive rocker panels underscore the appearance of the vehicle.
