Aren't those Skoda badges? (That's a Czech-built vehicle, for those who don't know.) Hard to tell with the Honda Gold Wing-style rear taillight panel on there.

I especially like the Playboy bunny just behind the steering wheel; it really sets off the whole Starship Enterprise interior theme. "Cap'n, we need more power!"

Sadly, I've seen pictures of the stock version and, trust me, that used to be a good-looking car under there.

Yes, it's a skoda S110R Coupe. It has a whole, wait for it....1107cc . And no, it wasn't that good a looking car. But it was better than the beauty shown here.
These vehicles have been the butt of motoring jokes in europe for the past twenty or thirty years. Only since VW took them over, and with the introduction of the octavia and fabia are they shaking off some of the old image. Slowly....

That interior really gets me. It's like he went through a junkyard and just took every gauge, dial, readout, etc. he could find. Looks like a Radio Shack exploded in his front seat. Amazing.

Wow, a Car that rips off Ferrai and Lamborghini at the same time, and with a surprise, no decals?

Actually, there's a lot of Porsche in there too. Note the "930" front end.

Your Mama didn't think so...

That's just poor. I find the aqua personal organiser doubling as a keyboard intriguing. But even this monstrosity is better than a certain RWD, rear-engined car I could name...

I like how the steering wheel and shift knob are ergonomically colour-coded so that you can't lose them amidst all the other "controls". But I still can't figure out where you set the date for time-travel mode.

Good Lord, what a monstrosity!!! My favorite aspects:
-the THREE antennae, obviously for radioing telemetry ( but to whom?!? ).
-the AutoLand system on the dash ( "Call the ball, Maverick!" ).
-the alarm clock on the dash in the top photo. Does he live in there too?

Great, we got an imature little preteen here trying to be clever. Take your BS out of here. 'Mama' jokes should have been left behind in middle school.

There is no doubt that the car pictured is indeed the greatest ricer.

Although this car is fast because of all the gauges, body kits and wings it could be a lot better and faster if the owner had some good stickers. A couple of R-Type or vtec stickers would improve performance.

But seriously ... I don't think this guy could drive over 30mph or all the c r a p would start falling off.

That's a Skoda S110R coupe under all the bits, not a bad car. Here in England, Skodas have been the butt of a lot of jokes, but if you want seriously cheap, frugal and solid transport, then this is the motor to go for, if looked after, they don't seem to break, like my Honda based, Rover 827, a car that is much better than its reputation will allow.

I am intrigued to find out more, and possibly source ICE like the aluminium finished header, equaliser units used in this vehicle.

The interior is a little OTT, but intriguing nonetheless.....
