Skoda released an official teaser shot of the CitiJet Concept which is set for debut at this year’s Worthersee GTI meeting. The event, as you know, is for the fans of Volkswagen GTI dynasty, but all VW subsidiaries will also show up paying their homage.
This is Skoda’s tribute to the mother company, built by a team of their best apprentices. The car’s a design study to see if it is possible to make a convertible version of the Citigo supermini and how would the public react to such a thing.
So the task force of young apprentices got busy chopping off the roof of the Citigo, at an angle, and fitting it with a couple of extras. The result is Skoda CitiJet Concept, and it does look rather good.
Besides the roof job, the car has also received a rear spoiler, dual exhaust, 16-inch wheels, and a special metallic blue paint job. Interior features include leather treatment with red and white accent, special floor mats, and, since it’s been made by a couple of youths, a banging stereo.
The engine in Skoda CitiJet Concept is the standard Citigo 1.0 liter petrol unit. It makes 75 horsepower. It does 0 to 60 in about 14 seconds, and if you push it to the ragged edge, it might do 105 mph flat out.
