Skoda Auto’s concept cars will take part in the largest tuning event that showcases vehicles of parent company Volkswagen Group. Skoda is prepping two concept cars for the event, the Skoda Citigo Rally and Skoda Citigo DJ Car. The May event will take in Lake Wörthersee, located in the Austrian village of Reifnitz, a traditional meeting place for tuning fans.
As the tuning event is considered one of the largest and most important of its kind, seven teams riding in Skoda vehicles will depart tomorrow from Prague and head to Reifnitz, Austria and unveil the company’s newest concept car at an exhibition area of more than 600 square meters. Tuning fans are sure to enjoy the 31st holding of the event, to be highlighted by a concert in the evening.
Skoda will bring in a special surprise for tuning fans during the concert. It is employing an international top DJ who will take control of the night’s music produced by almost 100,000 Watt strong sound equipment inside a Skoda DJ Car.
The Skoda DJ Car was especially designed just for the event. Gracing the tuning event will be a team of journalists and Czech celebrities, who will all arrive from Prague ferried by special Skoda models, two of which will be driven by Skoda rally champions Jan Kopecký and Juho Hänninen. Kopecký, Skoda Motorsport factory driver, expressed excitement in experiencing the “legendary atmosphere at Lake Wörthersee.”
