A trip down Skoda’s memory lane – designers breath new life into old icons

Felicia Cabriolet re-imagined 1

A collection of historic Skoda models have been re-imagined and re-designed with modern adaptations 

A team of designers at Skoda have started a makeover project taking the brand’s best-known models and giving them a modern design twist. So far, the team has re-imagined five models. 


The Voiturette A was first ever car created by Laurin & Klement, which would later become Skoda. It made its debut on 29 October 1905 before being shown at the 1906 Prague Motor Show. A two-seater that produced 7hp and had a top speed of 40kph, the Voiturette A included design details that were typical of the time, such as the wooden cabin and leather throne. It was the first in a long line of carriage-esque models that the company produced, with a staggering 18 other cars unveiled between 1906 and 1915, all of which used a similar shape and build as the Voiturette A.
