The much anticipated and awaited Goodwood Festival of Speed flagged off to today, and so did the slew of launches which we have been extensively bringing to you over the last few weeks.
This installment of news comes from the stands of Skoda as it schedules the unveil of its CitiJet concept car at the ongoing festival. The new convertible is based on the brand’s award-winning Citigo, and will appear alongside the Yeti Xtreme and VisionC concept cars during Saturday 28 and Sunday 29 June.
The Skoda CitiJet concept car was designed and built by 16 Sokda apprentices based at the firm’s headquarters in Mladá Boleslav, under the guidance of Jozef Kaban, Head of ŠKODA Design, who challenged the team to build their dream car.
The exterior features distinctive two-tone metallic paintwork, 16-inch wheels and a hand-crafted rear spoiler to emphasise the car’s sporting image. Inside, the CitiJet is fitted out with a red-stitched, leather-trimmed steering wheel, bespoke seat trim and a dashboard panel finished in white and red. Completing the interior package is a 300 watt sound system and music-reactive LED lighting.
The all-new stand from Skoda explores and celebrates the brand’s cycling heritage, with a host of interactive displays and activities designed to engage the visitors. One of the attraction is the ‘Ride the ŠKODA Summit’ that allows visitors to ride a Skoda bike up a special course constructed at the back of the pavilion. Other interactive features include a virtual Tour de France-style stage, and regular displays from a cycle stunt team. The Pavilion will also showcase ŠKODA’s growing range of cycles, which from 26 June can be ordered via the main Sokda consumer website.
