ŠKODA 130 LR

This is a Czechoslovakian rally car based on Skoda’s 120 model. While it had a classic sedan shape, these models of Skoda were rear engined. Following the success of the Skoda Estelle Rallye in the ’70s and early ’80s, the 130 LR was an evolution of the previous model and its factory effort to build a competitive B-9 (under 1300 cc) Group B rally car. Although it was no match for the upper classes, it did however perform quite well against its direct competition with the likes of the Citroën Visa. After the cancellation of Group B, the car was allowed to compete in national events until 1988. It shared some of its parts with the MTX 160 RS prototype.

The 130 lineup was introduced in late 1984. It basically was a 120 model but with a wider track and the larger 58 HP 1.3L engine.

It is unofficially reported that Skoda built 200 units of the 130LR specifically for rally use but that seems unlikely…
