Skoda's small army of vocational school apprentices have clearly graduated from making tea to cooking up something called the ‘CitiJet'.

This is the Skoda CitiJet concept
Skoda’s Worthersee concept car is a two-seater sports convertible based on a Citigo
The Worthersee-bound concept car took 16 apprentices six months to build, and had the full backing of Skoda head designer Jozef Kaban and his team.
The CitiJet is based on the Skoda Citigo - that's Skoda's version of the Volkswagen Up - featuring a blue and white paintjob, 16in alloy wheels and a hand-made rear spoiler. There are two tailpipes at the back as well.
Don't get too excited though, because these workies haven't let their ambition run amok; underneath sits no insanely tuned 2.5-litre five-pot turbo, but a 1.0-litre petrol engine with 75bhp. Aww.
Still, there's a red-stitch leather lined steering wheel, a 300-watt sound system and music-reactive LED lighting inside.
"Our apprentices have put their hearts and souls into this vehicle," Jozef said. Not only that, but the car is actually more a testament to Skoda's ongoing commitment to high quality vocational training, and is thus a fertile ground for new automotive minds.
