Special Thanks to our friends at Novinky.cz who have shown a reader video of the Rapid test mule with tricky camouflage testing on public roads. If you recall, Volkswagen India used a tilted Ford emblem on the boot a Focus’ bumper on the Vento’s test mules to mislead us. The European Rapid maybe brought to India as an extension to the brand and be positioned between the redesigned Vento and the next generation Octavia which is coming next year. The Rapid for Europe is expected to be a twin brother to the MissionL concept. But there are no near confirmation  of its launch in India.
