Sipi is a fairy who hangs above us like a huge, ever-smiling, men’s fragrance-smelling umbrella. He can be called anytime, anywhere to lend a helping hand, and he’ll be there in an hour with one of his Transits for sure. A dangerously maniac car collector (the street in front of his house is full of his vehicles), a radio-control and model car freak, Sipos is a Swiss knife made of human flesh. Totalcar is just one job amongst his zillion occupations, but he endears it the most. Lives with a girlfriend and two dogs.

This is the video that makes one half of the world’s population want a Skoda

If all rear-engined Skodas were this fast, who’d want a Porsche?

But folks, it’s a highly modified version of the130 LR which is the already highly modified version of the standard 130, aka Estelle. You can’t just buy a Skoda like this. Unless you’re looking for one that fits in your palms:

In Great-Britain Skoda was quite popular even in the 80’s; a lot of Skoda Estelles were sold there. In those days the old Skodas were famous for proper rally action. Unfortunately, the road versions were not that tail-happy and reliability was a serious issue. A lot of Skoda jokes were born at the time, like”  Why do Skodas have rear heated windows? - To keep your hands warm when you are pushing them” or „What's the difference between a golf ball and a Skoda? - You can drive a golf ball 200 yards.”

"It's about a second quicker
than the M3..."

What is it then? A BMW 2002 from the 70's, an M3 from the 80's? No, it's a hybrid from 2013, but not quite on the line of Toyota's ideas.
