Škoda at the head of the Tour de France. The evolution of the red car
This year will be the twentieth that a red Škoda leads the riders in the famous Tour de France. Several generations of the Czech carmaker’s models have already served as the race director’s car. Let’s take a look back at them.
The year is 2004 and the Tour de France director rides for the first time in the red Škoda special.
The first director’s car was the first-generation Superb, which was replaced by the second generation in 2008. A third generation followed eight years later, and from 2019 the car was the Superb iV with plug-in hybrid drive and purely electric driving capability. The purely electric Enyaq continued this trend in 2020.
