The “building of socialism” was not exactly an era for sports cars, and although the brand did produce some prototypes and race cars, the first post-war series-production car with a sporty spirit was the ŠKODA 110 R of 1970, a two-door coupé manufactured by the Kvasiny plant.
The rear-mounted engine drove the rear wheels, and the car’s maximum speed was 140 km/h. The frameless side-door windows were a unique thing at that time. The brand produced more than 56,000 cars of this model over ten years. The 110 R was used as the base for producing the 130 RS, the country’s most successful rally car for a long time.
