The Ferdinand Porsche Birth House
in Liberec-Vratislavice newly exhibits the
Auto Union Type C Grand Prix (1936),
a detailed replica of a monopost
designed by Ferdinand Porsche. In the
1934-1939, the "Silver Arrows" were
among the most successful participants
in the then top category of car racing
Grand Prix. The racing special with the
6.0 V16 / 520 hp (382 kW) engine
in front of the rear axle reached speeds
of more than 313 km/h and captured
numerous victories. A separate exhibition
commemorates another sporting event
of 1936, the long-distance drives
of the ŠKODA POPULAR and RAPID.
CAR AND DRIVER PREPARING FOR WINTER
In addition to ourselves, our cars also need preparation for a demanding winter
season. Changing to winter tyres is a no-brainer. Petr Krásný, Vehicle Safety
Development Specialist, recommends not waiting until the last minute to
change tyres - tyre shops tend to be overcrowded and you can end up waiting
up to 2 weeks to change them. It's also worth wiping the dusty and greasy
insides of windows with the appropriate products or wipes. This will get rid of
unwanted glare, for example from the headlights of neighboring cars.
Changing the windscreen washer fluid is also related to the coming winter.

ŠKODA AUTO is supporting the Czech Republic’s participation
at EXPO 2020* in the United Arab Emirates as a partner. The car
manufacturer is providing Czech Commissioner-General Jiří František
Potužník with the all-electric SUV ENYAQ SPORTLINE iV for the
duration of the World EXPO. The World EXPO is being held under the
banner ‘Connecting Minds, Creating the Future’ and is dedicated
primarily to the topics of sustainability and mobility.
** Due to the pandemic, the international exhibition is taking place one year later
than originally planned.
Since its introduction in spring 2017, the KAROQ has contributed substantially to the
Czech carmaker’s success. Alongside its “big brother” the KODIAQ, this compact
SUV has won over numerous customers and car magazines worldwide, playing a key
role in shaping the development of the ŠKODA brand in recent years. More than
500,000 units of the KAROQ have rolled off the production lines since 2017. In
2020 and in the first half of 2021, it was ŠKODA'S best-selling SUV and the brand’s
second most popular model overall after the OCTAVIA. The refreshed
ŠKODA KAROQ will make its debut in a digital media presentation on 30/11.
