Winged arrow cel­e­bra­tion

Yorkshire Post - Motoring - - NEWS -

ŠKODA is pub­li­cis­ing 85 years of its winged arrow em­blem. The first car to have the logo was the Škoda His­pano Suiza, a lux­ury car built un­der li­cence from the Span­ish mar­que.

The first was de­liv­ered to the pres­i­dent of Cze­choslo­vakia, Tomáš Gar­rigue Masaryk. Only 100 of the lux­ury sedans were built – all to or­der.

They were ex­pen­sive. Prices started at £6,785 and rose to £8,928. The con­tem­po­rary and lovely Škoda 860 costs £4,200.
