In one of the most fascinating technological success stories in the world, Škoda combines the traditions of a hundred-year-old motoring brand with its modern image as a global car company. This lavishly illustrated text takes us from the motorbikes and racing cars made by Laurin & Klement to the Soviet-era jalopies of the Czechoslovak Socialist Republic through to the upper mid-range models on today’s markets, all with prominent Austrian economic historian Johannes Jetschgo in the driver’s seat – in his Škoda, of course. Fasten your seat belts – it’ll be quite a ride!
