The best-preserved Škoda Favorit has traveled only 34 kilometers

Škoda Favorit

The Skoda model Favorit, which left the factory in 1993, despite its age, has only traveled 34 kilometers, and the current owner bought it last year for 24,000 euros.

Škoda would not be where it is today if it had not produced the Favorit, and this particular model was an extremely important factor in Volkswagen’s decision to take over the company. It was designed by Bertone and is the first model of the Czech brand with a front engine and front wheel drive. It was created after the Czechoslovak government made a decision in December 1982 to be fully developed by June 1985, that is, to start production within a period of up to five years.

The favorite was “launched” in July 1987 at the Brno fair, and was improved in the second half of its life cycle after Skoda was taken over by Volkswagen in 1991. The hatchback was “retired” in 1994 when the Felicia arrived, which was later replaced by the Fabia.

The photos show the restored Favorit from 1993, which is like a time capsule. The original owner from Athens bought it 30 years ago, and the car traveled only 34 kilometers. Those kilometers were covered on the way from the salon to the garage near the home of the owner, who decided after buying the car that driving was not for her after all. The favorite stood in the garage for 30 years, and in the fall of last year it was sold at auction. Runner Jiri Mičanek Junior bought it for 24,000 euros, it says

The new owner does not plan to drive the car much, which is in excellent condition except for a few minor scratches. The interior is perfect, while the seats are still protected by nylons.

The Favorite is equipped with the LX equipment package and includes imitation wood and graphics on the sides.

The car is powered by a 1.3-liter engine with a “powerful” 54 hp and uses Bosch electronics instead of a carburetor. The maximum speed is 137 km/h.
