Another Birthday

It is not often that Motor Sport has reason to mention Skoda cars, but we couldn't let a 90th anniversary pass without comment. The firm was founded in 1894 by Laurin Klement, initially making bicycles. Its first four-wheeled vehicle was made in 1901, a motorcycle followed in 1904 and a voiturette in 1905. It makes Skoda one of the longest surviving car companies in the world and, to celebrate the event, they have Produced 90 "Celebration" Rapid Coupes for sale in the UK.
