The 20th year of the prestigious Sachsen Classic vintage car rally took place on August 17-19 in the German state of Saxony, not far from the Czech border. The rally, whose route leads through the diverse Saxony landscape and traditionally visits several towns in the region, attracts a large number of spectators. There are always crowds of people coming from all over Europe to watch the four-wheeled treasures.

Škoda dispatched a total of seven cars and crew to the 20th edition. Spectators could see, for example, the beautiful Škoda 1100 MBX coupé, the historic Škoda 1101 Roadster and 1101 Cabrio, the classic Felicia model or the more modern 110 R and Rapid 135 coupés.

Škoda 1100 MBX

Although based on the standard Škoda 1000 MB, the beautiful Škoda 1100 MBX frameless coupé is a real rarity. Only 2,517 were produced.

Škoda Rapid 135

The Rapid is a popular Škoda coupé from the 1980s. The 135 version marked the end of the era of rear-engined cars, as it received the power unit from the Favorit model. Only 1,272 were made.

Škoda 1101 Cabrio

The oldest Škoda brought to the Sachsen Classic this year was a pair of 1101 series models. The elegant Tudor cabriolet attracted a lot of attention.

Škoda 440 Spartak

The sleek two-door Škoda 440 saloon was built in the second half of the 1950s and used proven technology that makes light work of vintage rallies today.

Škoda Felicia

The gorgeous Felicia convertible has traditionally been one of Škoda’s most admired historic cars. Its classic lines are simply irresistible.

Škoda 1101 Roadster

The second representative of the 1101 series at the Sachsen Classic was the Roadster version, which lacks the window frames of the Tudor cabriolet. Only 547 units were ever made.

Škoda 110 R

The racing Škoda 130 RS was nicknamed the “Porsche of the East”. The Škoda 110 R was the production version that gave ordinary drivers a chance to get a taste of its magic.
