In the Spotlight: Skoda 125 Years

Buy tickets Expo

Description

Of all the car brands still in existence, this Czech make is the fifth oldest in the world. Originally, the brand was called Laurin & Klement, named after its founders. The company joined forces with the machinery manufacturer Skoda in 1925, taking over its name at the same time. Before the war, the company built outstanding light passenger vehicles. In 1936, Skoda even succeeded in winning the Monte Carlo Rally. However, the long, rich history of the brand is less well-known here, because until the 1970s, Skoda sold very few cars in Western Europe. The turning point came in 1987 with the Favorit, and then, starting in 1989, after the fall of the Iron Curtain, Volkswagen became a strong partner in the company.
