CORPORATE ARCHIVE AT ŠKODA SPACE
While you can find the traditional corporate archive where Laurin & Klement started producing bikes and
motorcycles, the more convenient option for employees is its online version. Access it by clicking the magnifying
glass icon in the top panel at ŠKODA Space and selecting the „Corporate Archive“ tab. Here you will find
concept art of historical ŠKODAs, archive issues of the Ventil (ŠKODA Mobil predecessor), unique photos and
other documents from the past.

120 YEARS AGO,
WE BEGAN OUR
AT THE FAMOUS
MONTE CARLO RALLY.
Laurin & Klement vehicles
joined the rally classic in
1912, and in 1936 a
model with the winged
arrow was on the start
line for the first time at
the legendary competition – the POPULAR
SPORT roadster finished
in second place in the
under-1.5-litre class. After
WWII, our vehicles initially
earned a name for
themselves in the
under-1300 cm3 class, as
demonstrated by the
OCTAVIA TS hat-trick
between 1961 and 1963.
In the 1990s, the
FAVORIT 136 L
continued this success
story in Monte Carlo with
four class victories in a
row, taking first place
from 1991 to 1994. The
4WD FABIA has been
sensational on the special
stages in the Maritime
Alps above Monaco since
the 2010s: FABIA Rally2
evo also triumphed at
Rallye Monte Carlo 2021.
