The new generation of ŠKODA SUPERB has been sprayed with the noticeable ‘Corrida Red’ – especially for its appearance as the ‘Red Car’, belonging to the event’s director. For the powertrain, a 2.0 TDI/140 kW (190 PS) engine coupled with a DSG six-speed transmission is used. With the most interior space in its segment, the ŠKODA SUPERB makes the perfect mobile command center for Tour management.
It’s from here he’ll also entertain dignitaries, such as French President François Hollande, ready to serve them chilled Champagne from the minibar and present them with panoramic views through the car’s retractable glass roof.
Speaking about the car Prudhomme says: “I love my ŠKODA SUPERB. It’s a fantastic car. Gilles Maignan, my driver, is 6’2″ [190 cm] like me, and I can sit in the back very comfortably – even crossing my legs isn’t a problem.”
As the official Red Car leading the rider field, the ŠKODA SUPERB will be visible to millions of fans, especially since it’s the only car permitted to cross each stage’s finish line with the riders.
