Skoda 110 R
During the ’60s, Skoda’s primary sedan model was the 110. It was an essential four-door car with a rear-mounted four-cylinder engine. In Eastern Europe in those days, sports cars were almost nonexistent as a category. So Skoda wanted to introduce a sports coupe to widen its appeal and export sales. The result was the Skoda 110 R, a true sports coupe with a dynamic fastback design and more power (via Magazine DeRivas Ivez).
They presented the 110 R in 1970 and it immediately became a highly sought-after model in Eastern Europe. It retained the basic technical layout but had an upgraded engine producing 62 HP. But even though the performance was diminutive by today’s standards, back in early 1970s Czechoslovakia, it was a proper sports coupe.
