Skoda has fully restored the last 966 Supersport

Only one Skoda 966 Supersport exists on Earth, with Skoda to completely restore it and expose it in their museum. The racing car, along with two others, produced in the early 1950s, participated in its first race on September 24, 1950, at the Grand Prix of Czechoslovakia and it raced for the last time in 1962 at the hands of the Slovakian racing driver, Ivan Micik, who had it in his possession for many years. In 2007, Skoda bought it and then began to restore it.
