The New Skoda Fabia Monte Carlo AnnouncedPublished 13 January 2011
The Skoda Fabia line is about to be extended with the introduction of the Skoda Fabia Monte Carlo, a new model with enhanced sports styling and bespoke interior. Launched to celebrate 100 years of the Monte Carlo Rally, and commemorate the 110 year anniversary of the brand's motorsport efforts, this special edition model is a nod towards Skoda's sporting pedigree.
From the outside, the Skoda Fabia Monte Carlo boasts a dynamic look, underlined by the introduction of piano-black body trim, which extend over the wheel arches and down the full length of the car, a black roof, black door mirror covers, a black radiator grille top, smoked headlamps and black 17" lightweight Trinity alloy wheels.
Inside the Skoda Fabia Monte Carlo, customers can choose between all black or, red and black sports seats which boast additional side support. Both versions come with black roof lining, a perforated leather steering wheel with red stitching, leather handbrake and gearstick gaiter with red stitching (with the red-black interior option). To complete the enhanced sporty appeal silver kick plates and steel pedals are fitted as standard.
The new Skoda Fabia Monte Carlo is set to make its first public appearance at Rallye Monte Carlo (19th - 22nd January 2011), where Skoda's current all-conquering IRC championship winning rally car, the Skoda Fabia S2000, finished fourth (in class) on its first outing at this legendary rally in 2009. In 2010, Skoda Motorsport finished second, third and fifth (in class) with Hanninen, Vouilloz and Kopecky, respectively.
Available as hatchback only, the car's trim is based on the current Skoda Fabia SE version, and the new Skoda Fabia Monte Carlo will be available with a wide range of engines.
