Just as the ŠKODA team was collecting accolades in the World Rally Championship, the video, after being published, took off at dizzying speed and zoomed to a million views on social networks. ŠKODA FABIA R5 driving through downtown Prague as a taxi gathered more than 2.5 million views on YouTube and over 940,000 on Facebook.
The filming itself took place before last Christmas. A team of almost a hundred people contributed to it. The racing taxi was also accompanied by a specially modified six-wheeled buggy liberally festooned with cameras, a drone was capturing everything from above, and an entire team of camera operators was engaged in the streets.
