Slavia bug propelled by Škoda 1100 OHC sports model 
In thinking of the thought for the Slavia creepy crawly, the learners took motivation from the Škoda 1100 OHC. Introduced in 1957, this games model was an open-top two-seater race vehicle planned by Škoda for use in continuance rallies. With its low and extremely streamlined body made of glass fiber-fortified plastic and a load of only 550 kilograms, the Škoda 1100 OHC, controlled by a 1.1-liter four-chamber motor with a yield of 92 PS, arrived at a maximum velocity of 190 to 200 km/h, contingent upon the hub proportion.

Exhaustive alterations to the body 
To change the Scala bring forth out of the dark top Slavia, following the case of the Škoda 1100 OHC, the students played out various alterations to the vehicle's body, overhauling numerous territories and adjusting existing arrangements. They fortified the underbody, eliminated the rooftop and welded the back entryways set up, consequently turning a reduced hatchback model with a lot of room for five individuals into an inflexible two-entryway two-seater. To divert the wind stream over the vehicle, they built up an uncommon spread with trademark twin speedster bumps behind the seats, which mixes into a similarly new boot cover including an incorporated back spoiler. The understudies gave extraordinary consideration to clean advances on the A-columns and entryways. 20-inch combination wheels from the Škoda Kodiaq vRS show up.

Unique pearlescent paint finish in White Crystal Blue

Programmable LEDs, situated beneath the side ledges extended from the Scala Monte Carlo and behind the compound wheels, give client configurable powerful outside surrounding lighting in blue, red and white - the three shades of the Czech banner. The enlightened Škoda wordmark likewise duplicates as pointer, brake light and switching light. A "DRIVE 125 YEARS" identification on the front entryways reviews the organization's establishing in its commemoration year. 
Energetic inside with white features

The seats' side reinforces highlight dark carbon calfskin with white differentiation sewing. These unmistakable creases likewise add extraordinary appeal to various other inside components completed in dark calfskin, for example, the middle armrest, move switch gaiter, handbrake switch gaiter or the back spread plates. A similar blend is found in the lower 66% of the guiding wheel edge, while the upper third is done in white cowhide, just like the move switch handle. At last, an especially attractive detail is the dark cowhide bundle rack highlighting two weaved lions that house two indented bass speakers. The subwoofer has a yield of 2,250 watts, with the rest of the speakers including another 320 watts. The Slavia's boot obliges two Škoda electric bikes. The collapsing e-bikes are an ideal, eco-accommodating answer for what is known as an excursion's "last mile". 
"The Škoda Slavia emanates a unique dynamism in any event, when stopped. The new, bumped back spread, new boot cover and enormous wheels show up, which is additionally upgraded by the hustling seats and four-point safety belts in the inside. The understudies have figured out how to instill their vehicle with its own individual character while acing the building difficulties associated with transforming a shut body vehicle into an open-top insect," says Zdenk Stanke, group pioneer at the Škoda Academy.Martin Slabihoudek, the top of the Škoda professional school, includes, "Taking an interest in the Student Car venture is viewed as an amazing privilege among the learners at the Škoda professional school. You're allowed a chance to have a hands-on understanding of what it resembles to configuration, create and fabricate a vehicle without any preparation, from the underlying clear page to the completed vehicle. Being upheld by specialists from different offices is extraordinary, and they additionally imparted a few stunts of their exchanges to us. This is conceivably significant for our ensuing vocations.

Founded in 1927, the Škoda vocational school in Mladá Boleslav is known for its excellent standard of training. Since then, more than 23,000 students have graduated from the school. The current, 900-strong student body, is being taught in 13 different technical courses. Each successful graduate of the school is offered employment at Škoda AUTO. In 2013, the vocational school became part of the Škoda Academy and established a new tradition in the form of the Student Car project. This annual project enables young talent to design an original vehicle and then build it themselves. The first such vehicle was the CITIJET in 2014, a two-seater version of the Škoda Citigo.
For the trainees, participating in the Student Car project represents a unique opportunity to apply and improve the skills they have learned in a practical context. The current student team were once again eager to interact with experts from all Škoda departments. They received valuable tips in the Development department, and during a visit at Škoda Design, department head Oliver Stefani and his team personally assisted the students with the creation of their first design sketches for the Škoda Slavia. The Production department provided recommendations for suitable materials and technologies such as 3D printing.
"The Student Car project provides our trainees with an intensive behind-the-scenes look at all development and production departments at Škoda. Learning from Škoda experts in various areas is a very enriching experience for our students. Sadly, this year's coronavirus pandemic and the resulting social-distancing measures and plant closures have hampered this exchange to an extent. It's also had an impact on how the trainees could work together during the final construction phase of their vehicle. Nonetheless, their boundless enthusiasm, exemplary discipline and adherence to comprehensive hygiene and safety standards helped our students to come up with an impressive vehicle," says Ivo Vollman, instructor at the Škoda Academy.
First precursors dating back to the 1970s
The students' creativity and craftsmanship are increasing almost every year. The CITIJET was followed 12 months later by the FUNSTAR pick-up based on the Škoda Fabia, and then came the ATERO, a coupé take on the Škoda Rapid Spaceback. 2017 saw the students return to the Škoda Citigo, this time with the all-electric ELEMENT. The fifth Student Car, presented in 2018, was the SUNROQ convertible based on the Škoda Karoq, and in 2019 students transformed a Škoda Kodiaq into the impressive MOUNTIAQ pick-up. Early versions of the Student Car project date all the way back to the 1970s. Following the construction of several small tractors and, later on, a Škoda 120 pick-up, 1975 saw trainees at the Škoda vocational school produce four exemplars of the Škoda BUGGY Type 736 by hand. One of these prototypes was carefully restored in 2017, again by trainees from the Škoda , and is now on display at the Škoda Museum in Mladá Boleslav.
