The Monte Carlo comes with plastic body moldings for the wheel arches and the entire side of the vehicle, plus 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 black theme was also carried over to the inside, as customers will be able to choose optional a special black with red inserts theme. All versions will come with black headliner, 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 special edition model will be available with an extensive, market-differentiated engine line-up that includes the 105 hp 1.2-liter TSI petrol and 105 hp 1.6-liter TDI diesel engines.
“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.
