Skoda unveils one-of-a-kind Mountiaq pickup

A one-off Skoda pickup called the Mountiaq has been designed and built by 35 Czech students at the car brand’s vocational school.

The group of students used a Skoda Kodiaq as the base for the design and began by reinforcing the car’s body before removing the roof and building a bulkhead.

New windows were then added at the back and sides and the front doors also had to be shortened and widened to fit the new shape of the vehicle. Modified bumpers, running boards and door sills were also added.

The Mountiaq has a 2.0-litre TSI petrol engine pushing out 187hp, and it sits on 17in Rockstar II wheels with off-road tyres that increase ground clearance by 100mm over the Kodiaq Scout.

In the back, the load bed features a set of hidden storage compartments underneath the tailgate, with the vehicle pictured finished in a tailor-made Sunset Orange colour with snorkel, winch and bull bar.

Interior spec of the Mountiaq includes leather seats with orange detailing on the gearstick and steering wheel, and a 320W speaker system boosted with a 2,000W amplifier and subwoofer.

However, it looks like interested parties will have to make do with a picture, as there are no plans to build the 4×4 commercially.
