Praveen M, Engineer-turned-motorcycle journalist. I'm a sucker for cruising down the highways, and twisties in the hills.

Today, Skoda India confirmed the launch of the Skoda Rapid Monte Carlo Edition this month. The Skoda Rapid Monte Carlo will be launched in a red exterior colour and will get gloss black finish on the front grill, outside rear view mirrors and the roof. It will also get a spoiler lip in the same gloss black along with a rear diffuser. The car will ride on new dual tone alloy wheels, images that were shown to the media today in Mumbai, revealed.

Inside the Rapid Monte Carlo will get a sporty looking leather wrapped steering wheel which will get red stitching. The seats will be finished in a shade of black, red and white in line with the international Monte Carlo editions. The car will also get sports aluminium pedal. The red stitching can also be observed on the gear shifter cover. The use of gloss black finish can be seen on the AC vent surroundings, enhancing the novelty of the interior.

Mechanically the Skoda Rapid should be the same as the model sold currently, which gets 1.5L diesel and 1.6L petrol engines paired to five-speed, six-speed and seven-speed transmissions.
