Skoda apprentices have the subcompact Fabia for pick-up converted. The study Funstar is plenty wild. That fits, because it will debut at the GTI meet at Wörthersee.
If automakers are planning an April Fools joke (recall to the Wild Bird BMW M3 Pick-up single piece of 2011) or generally seek increased attention, then the handle to the saw is an effective means. The thought probably Skoda and now had a team of 23 apprentices from the Skoda Academy on a three-door Fabia lend a hand. The result is the study Funstar, a kind Fabia pick-up, which will debut at the GTI meet at the Wörthersee (13 to 16 May 2015).
1.2-liter TSI must reach
The cut Fabia rolls on 18-inch wheels of the Skoda Octavia RS and is powered by a 1.2-liter TSI with 122 PS. The switching work is performed by a seven-speed DSG. Apparently the Skoda trainees wanted to initially install a 1.8-liter TSI, but the bigger generator did not fit under the small pick-up hood. Interior sets the Funstar with flattened steering wheel and grippy seats completely on athleticism. There is also a touch-screen infotainment system that will be compatible with all smartphones. A homage to the GTI meet the 1,400-watt sound system, including 200-watt subwoofer.
A little tuning charm should not be missed
The tuning theme is externally added with green LED daytime running lights and a green underbody lighting. For the transformation to Pick up the side panels had strengthened and the B-pillar to be widened. The loading platform consists of stainless steel. Already last year was Skoda his trainees to a project for the GTI meeting. According to the Czechs the former result called Citijet was a great success. Should the Funstar of similar success to be crowned, Skoda will let his apprentices screws again next year.
