is the other half as dirty as it seems to be in the picture?
Surely it is not a real rally car, a faithful reproduction perhaps?

Does Skoda screw around with the people who use these cars also? Replace original parts with fakes so that in the middle of a special stage, the engine blows up?

Yes!

Infact i think they have used some sort of cement mix as dirt, so that it is permanent!

It is very interesting to look at all the sections of the car. Definitely worth going to check it out if you're interested in that sort of thing.

This is an Ex- WRC car. Its been ages since Skoda competed in the WRC.
Although they've prepared a Fabia for the first Rally 2000 class ,next year onwards.
