Skoda Introduces Fabia Monte Carlo
To be more precise, the Fabia Monte Carlo comes with plastic body mouldings for the wheel arches and the entire side of the vehicle, a black finish for the roof, wing mirror covers and radiator grille, as well as darkened headlamps. The same color is used for the 16-inch Comet alloy rims.
The interior also uses a black theme, with customers being able to choose optional a special black with red inserts theme. Both versions offer a black headlines, sport seats, a “small” leather pack (perforated leather-wrapped steering wheel with red thread, handbrake handle and gearstick gaiter – also with red stitching in the red-interior version), inner sill strips and metal pedal covers.
The vehicle can be fitted with a wide range of engines, which includes five petrol units and two diesels. The special Fabia will make its debut at the Monte Carleo Rally this month and will be showcased at the Geneva Auto Show, with order books opening next month.
“Referring to Skoda’s tradition of motorsport excellence, the sports-tuned Fabia Monte Carlo will make its debut at the Monte Carlo Rally where the brand’s current rally car, the Fabia S2000, has made remarkable achievements: fourth place in its category in 2009 when making its very first appearance at this event and second, third and fifth (Jakub: Juho, Voiullioz and Jan, respectively, all driving for Skoda Motorsport) places in 2010,” a company statement reads.
