I'm not sure anybody has ever written about a Skoda Yeti on a dyno. That's about as crazy as racing camels or eating tree bar and about as interesting as well.
But the Yeti is one of Skoda's most successful models. It was named Family Car of the Year in 2009 by Top Gear Magazine and it came fourth in the European Car of the Year awards. Cool right? Not really…

Of the hundreds of thousands of Yeti sold in the past five years, I'm willing to bet at least a quarter were base models with the 1.2 TSI turbo engine, like this one. With 105 and 175 Nm of torque on tap, they go 0 to 100 km/h in about 12 seconds and are only available with FWD.

The only thing for that is a bit of chip tuning, and French company BRPerfoormance has just release a video of one of their projects. The Yeti now makes a much more reasonable 131 hp and 233 Nm of torque. It's like camel racing with monkeys for jockeys – not cool, but at least it's not boring either.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
