Skoda Vocational School students have revealed their 7th concept car ‘Slavia’ — a Spider based on the Scala hatchback that we saw in 2018. Apparently, the inspiration came from the Skoda 1100 OHC two-seat roadster prototype.
To transform the Scala into an open-top Slavia, the team of 31 students did numerous modifications to the car’s body, redesigning many areas and adapting some existing solutions. They reinforced the underbody, removed the roof and welded off the rear doors, thereby turning a compact hatchback into a fairly neat looking two-seat roadster. The exterior is finished in White Crystal Blue with details in Black Magic.
As we can see, they’ve also created the buttresses behind the seats, and just behind them is an integrated spoiler on a reworked boot lid. The car rides on 20-inch alloy wheels from the Kodiaq RS while the brakes and wheel hubs come from the Octavia RS. There’s also a modified exhaust system.
The students have done a pretty good job with the interior too. Sporty highlights include Sparco racing seats with cushions and backrests in a black perforated leather finish and side bolsters in black carbon leather with white contrast stitching. Also, notice the embroidered lions behind the seats.
The Slavia Spider is powered by a 1.5-litre TSI petrol engine with 110 kW (150 hp) on offer. The engine is paired with a 7-speed DSG that drives the front wheels.
