Today it’s respected as a global partner of the sport, and is celebrating the UK stages of the Tour de France with three stunning limited edition models.
To mark the first three race stages taking place in the UK, ŠKODA is launching unique limited edition versions of the Yeti, Octavia and Superb.
Each has been designed with the keen cyclist in mind, and comes with ‘le Tour de France’ badging, waterproof seat covers and bike wheel bags – all of which feature the Tour de France logo. In addition, customers will receive a centenary edition of the Rouleur Tour de France book and a competition entry to win a VIP Tour de France experience.
Available in either Red, White or Blue* – the national colours of both the UK and France – only 198 examples of each car are available to customers. That’s the exact number of cyclists entered into this year’s race.
Priced at £23,490, the Yeti TdF is based on the Outdoor SE 2.0-litre TDI 140PS 4×4 model. Additional specification includes an Amundsen satellite navigation system with DAB digital radio, Keyless Entry and Start System, floor mats and an internal bike rack.
The Superb TdF is priced at £28,490 and is based on the Estate Outdoor 2.0-litre TDI 140PS 4×4 and has the same enhancements as the Yeti, along with a space saver spare wheel and boot net programme.
Priced at £24,290, the Octavia TdF is based on the Estate SE 2.0-litre TDI 150PS 4×4 model. It has the same enhancements as the Yeti and Superb, with the addition of roof bars and a roof-mounted bike carrier instead of an internal one.
