Skoda has announced details of a limited edition version of the popular Fabia Monte Carlo model, called Monte Carlo Tech, with an enhanced specification over the standard model.

Limited to 1,000 cars, the newcomer benefits from a Amundsen satellite navigation system and Bluetooth connectivity at no extra cost to the customer.

These are in addition to the striking sports-styled exterior, which includes piano-black body trim, black door mirror covers, a black radiator grille top, smoked headlamps and black 17-inch lightweight Trinity alloy wheels.

Inside, the all black sports seats boast additional side support. Both Monte Carlo Tech versions come with black roof lining, a perforated leather steering wheel with red stitching, and a leather handbrake and gearstick gaiter. To complete the look, silver kick plates and steel pedals are fitted as standard.

Skoda Monte Carlo TECH is available in two striking colour combinations – red with a black roof or white with a black roof. There are two engine choices, a 1.2-litre TSI 105PS petrol and a 1.6-litre TDI 105PS diesel. Sales of each will be restricted to just 500 units. The cars are priced £11,990 OTR and £12,960 OTR respectively.

Fabia Monte Carlo was launched in January 2011 to celebrate 100 years of the Monte Carlo Rally, and to commemorate the 110th anniversary of the company’s motorsport commitment. More than 4,000 have been sold since launch.
