Skoda Felicia General Information

For Skoda the Felicia replaced the Favorit. The basic design was the same, but the old fashioned looking sharp edges of the Favorit were gone. Although the Felicia looked much more modern than the Favorit, technically the differences were not too big. Not that it mattered, in that respect the Favorit was a well capable car, having just won the 1994 "F2" World Championship, when the Felicia arrived ready for 1995.

There was an interesting variation in Felicia models. While the Favorit had only a 1300cc engine and as tradition dictated collected many 1300cc class wins for Skoda, the Felicia was the first Skoda that should grow into bigger classes. The Felicia also was the car that took Skoda into the kit car age. Basically all Felicia were kit cars with the wide wings, although they were not too extreme to stay affordable. And there also was a 1300cc version, called the KC1300, to satisfy the traditional Favorit customers. But for the works team drivers, action kicked off with the bigger 1500cc version from the debut of the Felicia. This was all Skoda had available at the time and it was a good engine, never mind it not being at the 1600cc A6 class limit. And many Skoda fans saw this as the ultimate version, since the 1500 was a proper Skoda engine while the 1600 was with Volkswagen help and not actually that much of an improvement! Still not quite 2 years later this tiny flaw was corrected and out came the KC1600, making the Felicia the only F2 kit car that was available in 3 distinctively different engine versions.

It was as well the Felicia KC1600 that came up with a real shocker, maybe the most famous giant killing act ever for a Skoda. On the F2 only RAC 1996 Stig Blomqvist was at his best and maybe loads of snow and ice helped his case. But for a 1600cc FWD A6 car to come 3rd overall, only beaten by a works Toyota Celica ST205 and a works Subaru Impreza 555, that surely was nothing short of a sensation! Stig also beat the best full F2 car by over 7 minutes! All that with a 1600cc FWD car in deep snow!
