Following a couple of previews Skoda has now revealed the CitiJet study concept in its full glory ahead of the Worthersee GTI meeting where the car makes its debut. The car was made by a team of young apprentices over six months.
That might seem like a long time considering the only thing they’ve done is chopping off the roof. But that’s just what meets the eye. There is more to the Skoda CitiJet Concept than just an open-top Citigo with a stripe.
Exclusive features of the Skoda CitiJet include distinctive metallic paintwork in blue/white and racy, blue 16-inch alloy wheels, a hand-made rear spoiler, a powerful exhaust with two tailpipes connected to the standard 75 horsepower 1.0 MPI petrol engine, two-tone dashboard, red-stitched, leather-lined three-spoke steering, and a 300 watt sound system with music-reactive LED lighting.
Skoda, of course, has no intention of making this car. They look at it a test that their students have passed with flying colors.
“Our apprentices have put their hearts and souls into this vehicle. Every little detail, no matter how small, was discussed, agreed upon and put into practice by the team. It was a real team effort. The outcome: a unique and emotional car, of which everybody involved should be very proud of,” says Head of Skoda Auto Design Jozef Kaba.
