SKODA POPULAR Monte Carlo (1936–1939): The elegant model with rally DNA

Customers appreciated the four-cylinder engine with 31 hp (23 kW) and a capacity of 1.4 litres, which came from the larger RAPID and had proven its worth at the Monte Carlo Rally. The modern hydraulic brakes and precise rack-and-pinion steering also enhanced the dynamic characteristics of the POPULAR Monte Carlo, which can reach speeds of up to 110 km/h.

In 1938 the Czechoslovak government presented a particularly luxurious version of the POPULAR Monte Carlo roadster to the head of state of allied Yugoslavia, King Petar II Karađorđević, who was only 14 years old at the time.

The black POPULAR Monte Carlo coupé from 1937 shown here has been in the ŠKODA Museum’s collection since 1968. It was professionally restored at the turn of the millennium and has since been a representative of ŠKODA’s 125-year history at many classic car events at home and abroad. A second coupé is currently undergoing extensive renovation at the ŠKODA Museum workshops, and a POPULAR Monte Carlo roadster will also be rebuilt here soon.
