Radical Skoda estate celebrates the firm's rallying success and features racing modifications

Skoda has revealed design sketches of its new Skoda Fabia Combi R5 show car, which will make its debut at the Wörthersee tuning festival later this month.

Built to celebrate the Czech firm’s success in rallying with the regular Fabia R5, the Combi sits on 18in alloy wheels and features a unique green, white and black design. Dominating the rear is a large spoiler, while a wide central exhaust can also be seen.

Power for the concept comes from a 1.6-litre turbocharged petrol engine, with drive sent to all four wheels through a sequential five-speed transmission.

As many as 200,000 people are expected to attend the Wörthersee event, which last year hosted the unveiling of concepts including Skoda's Yeti XTreme and CitiJet concepts and Volkswagen’s GTI Roadster concept.

The new Fabia takes the old pragmatism upmarket and rocks the supermini segment in the process, eclipsing rivals that once had a tight grip on the market

nice but

Wouldn't Skoda time be better spent working on something that will actually make it into production

Rapid sport?

Yeti x treme

Citijet? To name a few

They need to concentrate on being equal with very in terms of quality and not be considered the poor relation especially with it's newest products, close but saving the best for VW when clearly it wouldn't upset it's market share. Hyundai and kia for example.

Love it!

The rally car looks like a modern day Delta EVO II to me, especially in plain white which the press pictures show. Not beautiful parse but very purposeful and aggressive like the EVO without being too over the top. Would love to have one with most of the cage removed, necesarry luxuries and the rear seats/doors reinstated, would be the perfect useble sports car for our less than perfect roads
