  • Born on the rally track: Škoda Monte Carlo models stand for tradition, motor racing and lifestyle




    • MONTE CARLO trim level pays homage to the successful ŠKODA motor racing history
    • Sporty accessories and black design elements have defined lifestyle versions since 2011
    • Trim level for SCALA and KAMIQ to debut at the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show in September


    Monte Carlo, the glamorous urban district of the Principality of Monaco, is synonymous with lifestyle, elegance and motor racing. ŠKODA has claimed some of the greatest victories in its motor racing history at the famous Monte Carlo Rally. As far back as 1936, the company released a limited edition of 70 vehicles bearing the MONTE CARLO name. Since 2011, select ŠKODA models with a particularly sporty design and numerous black elements have commemorated this tradition, which is now continued by the SCALA MONTE CARLO and the KAMIQ MONTE CARLO. Both vehicles will be premiered at the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show.


    The Monte Carlo Rally and ŠKODA have a long-standing association stretching back over a hundred years. As early as 1912, when the Monte Carlo Rally was only in its second year, vehicles from Mladá Boleslav were among the competitors. In 1936, ŠKODA POPULAR took second place in its category – marking the start of the MONTE CARLO models. Following this outstanding success, ŠKODA released a limited edition of 70 vehicles that were derived straight from the rally car; they were the first to be given the MONTE CARLO designation.




    Exactly 75 years later, ŠKODA revived the celebrated name when it introduced the ŠKODA FABIA MONTE CARLO as the sporty lifestyle version for the second FABIA generation in 2011. Even after the changeover to the third generation, the FABIA MONTE CARLO remains the model series’ dynamic top variant. From 2014 to 2019, the Czech car maker offered the ŠKODA CITIGO, ŠKODA RAPID and ŠKODA RAPID SPACEBACK MONTE CARLO, and the ŠKODA YETI MONTE CARLO was sold from 2015 to 2017.

    This success story continues seamlessly with the current-generation FABIA MONTE CARLO, which is now joined by the MONTE CARLO versions of the ŠKODA SCALA and ŠKODA KAMIQ. These sporty lifestyle variants are named after the Monaco district that has been the home of the Monte Carlo Rally since 1911, with its legendary Sisteron stage, or the drive across the famous Col de Turini. Numerous black elements provide additional sporty accents, making the design appear even more emotive and dynamic. The ŠKODA SCALA MONTE CARLO for example has black detailing in the front apron, while the ŠKODA KAMIQ MONTE CARLO comes with black roof rails. In addition, the new top variants can be identified by a special badge.


    The SCALA MONTE CARLO and the KAMIQ MONTE CARLO will be introduced to the public at the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show from 10 to 22 September 2019.

    Re: Brand New S7 Vorsprung missing the Parking Assist Feature

    I’m still working on it. They are being very evasive at the moment especially since I mentioned that I think they might have breached my statutory rights

    I now have my car and can confirm it does not have that feature either. I went in to MyAudi in the website rather than the app and it listed all the features

    I did use the pins. I took it to the dealers to have the alignment done too, and I was told the driver’s side camber (I think) was just off the mark?!

    Remember if you did not use alignment pins, get it checked...

    Sounds like you'll get there one way or another. Take a look at the driver's door to see what screw heads you'll need to work with.

    A4 3.0 TDi - yes another one!

    A friend purchased this a few months back. I had dark suspicions over it at the time but I kept quiet, this means I now feel guilty for this little cowbag.

    You can fit the Shalambra wishbones but it can get pricey and few companies offered them last time I looked.

    Re: Bucking bronco. Vacuum problem?

    The turbo has a wastegate as it is not a VNT unit so no VANES, if it was stuck open you would have underboost. Check the charge pressure control lines

    Re: B5 a4 Power steering failure?

    Certainly not a rack prone to failure, any visible leaks around the boots?
