Skoda has announced details of a limited edition version of its hugely popular Fabia Monte Carlo model, called the Monte Carlo Tech, with an enhanced specification over the standard model.
The Skoda Fabia Monte Carlo will be limited to 1,000 cars and buyers will benefit from a state-of-the-art Amundsen satellite navigation system and Bluetooth connectivity at no extra cost.
These are in addition to the Skoda Fabia Monte Carlo’s striking sports-styled exterior, which includes piano-black body trim, black door mirror covers and radiator grille top, smoked headlamps and black 17-inch lightweight alloy wheels.
Inside, the Skoda Fabia Monte Carlo there are all black sports seats which boast additional side support. Both Monte Carlo Tech versions come with black roof lining, a perforated leather steering wheel with red stitching, and a leather handbrake and gearstick gaiter. To complete the look, silver kick plates and steel pedals are fitted as standard.
The Skoda Fabia Monte Carlo is available in two striking colour combinations – red with a black roof or white with a black roof.
There are two engine choices: a 1.2-litre TSI 105PS petrol and a 1.6-litre TDI 105PS diesel.
Sales of each engine will be restricted to just 500 units of the Skoda Fabia Monte Carlo.
The cars are priced £11,990 OTR and £12,960 OTR respectively.
The Skoda Fabia Monte Carlo was launched in January 2011 to celebrate 100 years of the Monte Carlo Rally, and to commemorate the 110th anniversary of the company’s motorsport commitment.
Since then the Skoda Fabia Monte Carlo has been a huge success for the brand in the UK and more than 4,000 have been sold since launch.
The Skoda Fabia Monte Carlo is a decent well made car – Skoda has been in the top 10 of the JD Power Survey of Customer Satisfaction for the past 20 years.
There’s also a very good finance deal on offer from Skoda though, as I keep saying, the Skoda Fabia Monte Carlo is one car that will undoubtedly be cheaper to lease than to buy.
