Skoda has become the first motor manufacturer to send a car to Mars but ,it’s not the place you’re thinking of
While Elon Musk’s own first-generation Tesla Roadster won’t make it to planet Mars, Skoda has successfully sent its flagship Superb model in the 280-horsepower Sporstline specification to Mars. Without making a big fuss about it, the Czech marque part of the Volkswagen Group has released video footage on YouTube to demonstrate the red-hot Superb was actually on a mission to Mars.
After checking the rearview mirror and the car’s Adaptive Frontlight System (AFS), the driver fires up the four-cylinder 2.0 TSI gasoline engine as well as the infotainment system displaying “Don’t Panic Elon!” on the touchscreen( the same mantra Elon Musk set on the dashboard of his electric sports car).
He then embarks on a journey to Mars… as in the tiny commune located in the Loire department in central France. After tackling the traffic at speeds of a little over 62 miles per hour (100 kilometers) per hour, he arrives at the destination.
He is greeted by dozens of people part of a very small community taking into account only several hundred people are currently living in Mars. After shaking hands, hugging kids, and taking photos, our hero walks away and bounces on the road as if he were in outer space. After all, he is on Mars where the gravity is much lower compared to what we have here on Earth and they also manage to prove that there is life on Mars.
