The new student car will carry the name SLAVIA, a homage
to the first bicycles made by Laurin & Klement. ŠKODA
Vocational School students will thus join the celebrations of

The SLAVIA is spider version on the basis of the SCALA.
Apprentices were inspired by the racing special 1100 OHC
(1957). The student car runs on a 1,5 TSI and 110 kW
petrol engine. Its white hi-tech paint with blue pearlescent
effect gives it an extraordinary gloss.
