Paris premiere for Skoda, 80 years ago

With the Paris Motor Show starting this weekend, Skoda thought it was apt to show us this model which premiered in Paris exactly 80 years ago, writes Brian Byrne.

It was the Skoda Popular Sport Monte Carlo, and this copy is a coupe version built in 1937 and now in the company’s own museum.

The car was produced in limited edition sporty roadsters, convertibles and coupes which are now considered among the most attractive vintage cars to have ever been produced by the brand.
