A very interesting Škoda Favorit recently appeared for sale in Athens, Greece.
Its condition is unique, as it is a car from 1993, which for unspecified reasons has driven only 34 kilometers. It was available through an online auction.
And the condition of the car also corresponds to this. In the available photos, of which more than 200 appeared in the ad, the Favorit looks like new. Not only on the outside, but also on the inside. The front seats still have protective plastic, the Barum tires are also original. However, the seller warns that the tires will need to be replaced.
Minor cosmetic defects can still be found, these are small paint scratches, dents in the rear doors and the front bumper is also slightly damaged. Among the interesting features of the Greek “faček” are the stripes on the sides, ending with the inscription “Favorite” on the rear pillar, or the “Bertone” logos on the front fenders – these of course refer to the famous Italian studio that designed the body and interior design of the first Škoda model with a front engine and front wheel drive.
The interior also looks unusual with decors made up of stick-on strips with a wood look. It is, of course, an imitation. The equipment is LX, which is revealed mainly by the presence of a clock in the instrument panel – the more expensive GLX version had a tachometer there. The equipment also includes manually operated windows and rear-view mirrors or a heated rear window.
In terms of functionality, according to the seller, the car is absolutely fine, in May of this year, the Favorit was also serviced and received several new parts: battery, fuel pump, water pump, oil filter or brake pads. Of course, the oil was also changed.
Naturally, the engine is powered by a naturally aspirated 1.3-liter four-cylinder, paired with a five-speed manual transmission. The output should be 43 kW.
And how much did the unused Favorit from Greece finally sell for? Bidding stopped at 24,000 euros, which translates to about 589,000 crowns. In addition to the car itself, the new owner can also look forward to original catalogs, the original spare wheel and a set of tools.
