DOUBLE FOR ŠKODA
In 1987, after a quarter of a century dominated by vehicles
with a rear-mounted engine and drivetrain, the ŠKODA
FAVORIT was a revolutionary innovation. As a rally car, the
FAVORIT regularly claimed victories in the under-1,300 cm3
class and held its own in the overall standings of the WRC.
Highlight of the FAVORIT’s motorsport career: Victory
in the ‘Formula 2’ category for vehicles with one driven axle
and a maximum engine capacity of two litres in 1994.
Four-cylinder eight-valve engine with 1,299 cm³
displacement and OHV valve control delivered 105 hp
and 117 Nm of torque
