Škoda introduced two world debuts at the 31st GTI Meeting in Wörthersee, Austria this week. Both design studies were based on the Škoda Citigo, including the Citigo Rally, which brings the company’s rally successes to the road.
Meanwhile, the Škoda Citigo DJ Car served as a turntable and a mixer for DJs appearing at a concert during the festival.
The Škoda Citigo Rally concept was a white car with a black roof and color accents. It had enlarged bumpers, rear wing and forged 18” wheels. Other rally features included wider fenders and side skirts. A centrally mounted exhaust dominated the rear-end, jutting from a diffuser in the rear bumper.
The Citigo Rally’s interior also differed from the street version in that it included a rollcage, race seats, and lightweight dashboard. The central console also carried a raft of switch and buttons reminiscent of a rally car.
The rally-car-inspired study made its debut at a time when the Škoda Citigo is making its first appearance in European markets. Accordingly, a production Citigo was on display at Wörthersee with a ‘Sport Design’ trim package.
On Thursday night, several DJs appeared at the GTI festival, including surprise guest Tiësto. He was mixing samples of his hits on the Škoda Citigo DJ Car. The prototype was a mixer on four wheels. The car’s rear could be retracted from the B column back, turning the vehicle into a mobile stage. This is where DJ Tiësto played for thousand of fans, supported by a PA system with almost 100,000 watts of power.
