Topless Worthersee bonanza! Set to join the VW GTI Roadster Vision Gran Turismo and Seat Ibiza Cupster concepts at the long-running VAG show is the equally-roofless Skoda CitiJet concept.

Clearly based on the Skoda Citigo (a rebadged VW up!), the Skoda CitiJet is the work of 16 apprentices over six months. It features 16-inch alloys, a handmade rear spoiler and twin tailpipes. Under the bonnet resides a 75 PS 1.0 litre MPI three-cylinder petrol engine.

The interior is based on the special-edition Skoda Citigo Sport’s. The steering wheel, handbrake handle and gear knob are wrapped in leather, while seat covers and floor mats have a sporty material design.

The dashboard is a two-tone white and red, and a 300-watt sound system works with music-reactive LED lighting for a truly rockin’ time.

“Our apprentices have put their hearts and souls into this vehicle. Every little detail, no matter how small, was discussed, agreed upon and put into practice by the team,” said Skoda design head Jozef Kaban.

The 100,000th Skoda Citigo recently left the factory gates in the Slovakian capital of Bratislava, where the city car has been produced since 2011.
