Škoda has reached an epic milestone, having produced its two-millionth Škoda Octavia in Vrchlabí.
Whilst only a new entry into the Australian market, Škoda Auto is a well established manufacturer in its home nation of the Czech Republic.

Altogether the company has produced 1,315,000 first-generation and 685,000 second-generation Octavias since the market launch several years ago.
Not one to rest on its laurels, Škoda has also begun testing the first of its Fabia Super 2000 prototypes.
Based on the second generation Fabia, the prototype is destined to compete in the Super 2000 category.
In compliance with the FIA regulations, is equipped with a two-litre atmospheric four-cylinder petrol engine, a six-speed sequential transmission and a four-wheel drive system with three mechanical differentials.
