Welcome to Ridiculous Rebadges, a series of articles in which I go through and examine the details and circumstances surrounding some of the more infamous and some of the more esoteric vehicular rebadges throughout automotive history.
Well, I did, so yeah.

The HF Turbo stays in the family. He will use it as his daily driver, the Octavia RS will be used by his girlfriend.
That's what happens when you marry, remarry, have one child and another coming. Don't worry, though, he still has a Skoda Octavia RS.
There is a limited edition Delta Integrale with Martini livery. It does cost 72.5k USD/52.5k EUR though, but with only 20000 miles after 22 years it could still be great.

And I don't even care what the guy is saying, his story is probably as interesting as dialogues in porn movies. Background noise, all of them. But the beautiful, white brick, with it's fantastic Martini stripes... I get all tingly. Every single time.
But so right.
