Footnotes

  • Capitalising on rallying successes - the Skoda 130LR won its class in the 1986 RAC Rally and took Group B honours in the same event in 1987 - SK Distributors of Brackley, Northants developed a tuned model for the road, the resulting Estelle-based Sport being shown at the London Motor Show. Changes to the engine included a ported and gas-flowed cylinder head, high-lift camshaft, sports exhaust system, balanced crankshaft/flywheel, tubular inlet manifold and a better carburettor, usually a Weber. Power went up from the stock 55bhp to around 75-80 horsepower, resulting in a useful gain in performance.
    The Sport's five-speed gearbox boasted closer ratios while the running gear featured lowered/up-rated springs, Spax adjustable dampers, a thicker front anti-roll bar and Minilite-style alloy wheels. Customers could choose from options that included a colour-matched full body kit with works-type 'bathtub' rear spoiler and fog lamp-integrated front grille (both of which rare items are fitted to the car offered here). Inside, the Sport featured black cloth upholstery, stereo radio/cassette, Mountney steering wheel and a sunroof.
    'E996 BDV' is the 46th of the 222 Sport 130s built by SK to broadly FIA Group N specification, its number being stamped on the chassis plate. Believed to be the only surviving saloon, the remainder being coupés, this car was discovered a couple of years ago abandoned in a council garage and comes with expired MoTs verifying the 29,800 miles recorded. Described as in generally good condition, with mint interior and excellent chassis, this rare, limited edition Skoda is offered with (copy) magazine article, MoT/tax to March 2010 and Swansea V5.
