Here are a couple of pics of the new Skoda Octavia WRC rally car.<br>Skoda is owned by VW and the Octavia is based on the same<br>platform as the A4 and Passat, using the same 1.8LT 20v engine.<br>The Octavia is more of a mix between the A4 and the Passat.<p>-george
Isn't this Skoda based on the Mk IV chassis of the NBeetle, Golf IV and etc?

As far as I know it is based on the same platform as the Passat. It has the <br>same engine lay out. Size vise, the dimensions are close to the A4.<p>-george
But the engine goes the wrong way... That's what lead me to believe its based on the MkIV chassis.<p>It could be based on the A4-Passat chassis and the engine/trans turned to use the developed drivetrain. Maybe?

George - I co-drove for Mitch McCullough in the white and blue 323 GTX in '93 and '94. I also co-drove for Kurosh in the Coupe Quattro at Gorman and Indio one year ('95?). It's great to know you're doing well and building a new car. If we do another motorsports area at the LA Auto Show this year, I'll try to include you (if the car's finished). I'm going to post some photos of Kurosh's car on my web site soon. Check it out.<ul><li><a href="http://home.earthlink.net/~webbracing">Webb Racing Home Page</a></li></ul>
