Skoda Vision GT concept sports car revealed

Skoda is best known as an entry European brand focused on practicality, but is it uncharacteristically flirting with an open-topped sports car?

The Czech company has ‘revealed’ the computer-animated Vision GT roadster concept, paying homage to the little-known Skoda 1100 OHC two-seater from 1957.

Skoda calls the renders a “study of an all-electric racing car made in Mladá Boleslav”, and a “clear signal for sustainable sportiness and emotion in the digital age”.

Like the 1100 OHC, the Vision GT is a red open-top racing car. However, it’s designed as a single-seater, with the driver sitting in the centre. Skoda adds the flexibly suspended seat is designed to “optimally compensate for g-forces”.

Skoda says the futuristic carbon-fibre steering wheel is flattened at the top and bottom. Key information is apparently designed to be projected directly onto the driver’s helmet visor, similar to a head-up display.

The exterior design is inspired by Formula E racing cars, particularly evident in the two-piece rear wing.

Now, it’s clear this iteration of the Skoda Vision GT digital concept is far-fetched; just a fun exercise for the design team.

However, Skoda does have some form turning ‘Vision’ concepts into reality. The 2019 Vision iV concept previewed the Enyaq quite neatly.
