Streamlined icon of the brand: The SKODA 935 DYNAMIC celebrates its 85th birthday
The expertise that the engineers gained in this area with the 935 DYNAMIC was incorporated into the design of the series models that followed shortly afterwards, such as the ŠKODA POPULAR MONTE CARLO of 1936 and the “motorway version” of the ŠKODA RAPID 1500 OHV presented in 1939.
However, there is another reason the ŠKODA 935 DYNAMIC remains a highlight for technology fans to this day: As a boxer engine, the water-cooled four-cylinder engine with a displacement of two litres has opposing cylinders and is mounted in front of the rear axle as a rear-centre engine.
The construction and design of the ŠKODA 935 DYNAMIC and the knowledge gained through developing it prompted the Mladá Boleslav brand to enter the 1937 Monte Carlo Rally with a modified, more compact version. The vehicle was moved to ŠKODA’s used car stock, and all traces of it were lost.
However, the history of the only ŠKODA 935 DYNAMIC ever made is very well known: ŠKODA sold the vehicle as a used car to a private buyer in 1939, and repurchased it from the same individual in the 1960s. Three years ago, the museum workshop completed the meticulous restoration of this unique vehicle, which has been among the highlights of the ŠKODA Museum in Mladá Boleslav ever since.
