Trib­ute to a rally leg­end — the Czech way

The Witness - Wheels - - MOTORING -

Top Czech designer Petr No­vague and Marek Hoff­mann, CEO of auto-body man­u­fac­turer Kovovýroba Hoff­mann joined forces to re­make the Skoda R130 RS, a car that be­came a leg­end among Czech rally fans in 1975. They used an Audi R8 to base their ‘Hoff­mann-No­vague R200 Non-Fic­tion’. But its fans can just call it the Erko. The car will be on dis­play at the DOX Cen­tre for Con­tem­po­rary Art in Prague un­til May 11 and it can be or­dered. But with a start­ing price tag of 255 000 (R3,3 mil­lion), there may not be many tak­ers.
