Skoda’s April Fools’ joke reflects the capabilities and versatility of their Yeti models by introducing a faux fur finish for it. It is said to be developed by Skoda engineers working in the Himalayas, and tested in the Arctic Circle. And the development code – you guessed it – is 010414. Come to think of it though, it’s not actually a bad idea. I mean these days people wrap their cars in velvet, so why not fur.

Skoda Yeti with Fur Exterior:

ŠKODA is celebrating the launch of its new Yeti range with a remarkable new special edition – the Yeti Ice. On sale today, the new model pioneers a radical new faux fur finish that has been developed by ŠKODA engineers working in the Himalayas.

The Yeti Ice’s faux fur has numerous advantages over traditional paint, as its inventor, Dr Yu Ciddingme explains: “The fur is so thick and luxurious that during our tests in the arctic circle, our test drivers didn’t need to use the heater.”

The new model is based on the new Yeti and Yeti Outdoor launched in January and was developed under the code number 010414. All models will be built to order with owners able to choose from a number of personalisation options, including side-partings and fur extensions.

Owners will find that maintaining the Yeti Ice’s fur is easy thanks to standard specification that includes a lifetime supply of ŠKODA-branded shampoo and conditioner, a comb and brush kit to preserve the well-groomed look.

Head of Special Developments, Prof Lukat Thedate said: “Everybody loves the new furry finish. People like to give it a hug and a tickle under the bumper.”
