$47,000 for a 22-year-old Skoda Felicia! What went wrong?


A 2000 Skoda Felicia hatchback with low mileage is put up for sale in the Czech Republic. And they want to get at least 1 million crowns (about 46,740 US dollars) for it.

This is reported by RBC-Ukraine Auto with reference to AutoViva.

Note that Skoda Felicia was introduced in 1994 as a successor to the Favorit model and was sold in hatchback, combi and pickup bodies until 2001. In total, Skoda produced 1.4 million units of Felicia at the factories in Mlada Boleslav, Vrchlabi and Kvasiny during the release.

Then, Felicia was replaced on the assembly line by the first-generation Fabia model, in the development of which the parent concern Volkswagen has already taken an active part.

The sample Skoda Felicia put up for sale is notable for the fact that it spent almost its entire life in a garage – in 22 years of operation, the car drove only 14,100 km and did not receive any dents or scratches. The car retains its original paint and tires, and the “Trumf” decal on the C-pillar highlights the high level of trim.

In addition, the sample received an Octavia-style grille. Both outside and inside, the base of the car is in perfect condition – with upholstery typical of that time and multi-colored plastic.

Under the hood is an 8-valve 1.3 MPI petrol engine developing 67 hp. (50 kW) and 106 Nm of torque. Paired with the unit is a five-speed manual gearbox.

Will this “time capsule” be of interest to local collectors, despite its high price?
