Skoda has announced several Tour de France Special Edition models including Yeti, Octavia and Superb for the UK. Available in either Red, White or Blue – the national colours of both the UK and France – only 198 units of each car are available to customers. That's the exact number of cyclists entered into this year's race. This year's Tour de France will start in the UK on July 5th.

Priced at £23,490, the Yeti TdF is based on the Outdoor SE 2.0 litre TDI 140HP (103 kW) 4x4 model. Additional specification includes an Amundsen satellite navigation system with DAB digital radio, Keyless Entry and Start System, floor mats and an internal bike rack.

The Superb TdF is priced at £28,490 and is based on the Estate Outdoor 2.0 litre TDI 140HP (103 kW) 4x4 and has the same enhancements as the Yeti, along with a space saver spare wheel and boot net programme.

Priced at £24,290, the Octavia TdF is based on the Estate SE 2.0-litre TDI 150HP (110 kW) 4x4 model. It has the same enhancements as the Yeti and Superb, with the addition of roof bars and a roof-mounted bike carrier instead of an internal one.

With the famous race starting on 5th July, this year's Goodwood Festival of Speed – just a week before, on 26–29 June – was the obvious place for Skoda cycling credentials to take centre stage. Visitors will even get the chance to win VIP hospitality tickets to see the cycling action.

Visitors to the Skoda pavilion at this year's Goodwood Festival of Speed will be invited to ‘Ride the Summit' with the chance to stand on top of the podium against the spectacular backdrop of Goodwood House.
