NICE! i enjoy seeing racecar builds out of LEGO most since there's always so much more to consider; and such personality! nice livery. awesome use of the Mixel joints for the A-pillars too, very cool. or should i say, xool! (if that's pronounced like "school", i shall edit ;])
Excellent Skoda model. A few more photos showing the side profile and diagonally from the front. would have been nice. But the body looks really good. The engine and interior are great too. Beautyfull Work!
