26 students at the ŠKODA vocational school have built their dream coupé: the ŠKODA ATERO is a spectacular car based on the compact ŠKODA RAPID Spaceback. The fully functional, unique vehicle is already the third ‘student car’ from ŠKODA Academy.
The students started work on the ŠKODA ATERO at the end of 2015. The team of 26 from the ŠKODA vocational school in Mladá Boleslav – four young women and 22 young men – developed and implemented the concept together with the support of the instructors, Technical Development, Design and Production departments.
Measuring 4.3 metres in length, the ŠKODA ATERO is a compact, two-door coupé. The 1.4 l TSI engine (92 kW/125 PS) and the 7-speed DSG gearbox have colour changes, the team of students made considerable changes to the chassis. The 18-inch wheels in the ‘Turini’ design come from the ŠKODA OCTAVIA. They are painted black with red stripes. Ventilated, manually perforated brake discs sit behind the front wheels. The ŠKODA ATERO is painted in metallic Black Magic, accessories (wing, spoiler, sills) come in Corrida Red; the radiator grille, air intake and diffuser insert are also surrounded by red contours.
