Ever wondered why the Skoda Rapid is being spotted oh so often? Well the company is testing the car in a hurry to ensure it is completely ready for production before September. Skoda has confirmed the display of the Rapid at the Frankfurt Motor Show and the launch would happen by the end of this year.
