    I love this site, but #25 is absolutely incorrect. Indeed Skoda is part of de Volkswagen Auto Group, just like Audi, Seat, Volkswagen, Bugatti, Bentley etc. While cars like the Ibiza and the Polo share a great deal of their parts (platform, engines and transmissions), there isn’t a direct relation between models from Lamborghini and Skoda. The Audi R8 is to some extend related to Lamborghinis Hurácan, and Audi’s Q7 is the basis of Lamborghinis Urus (SUV) but that’s about the closest you get. No, a Skoda has nothing to do with a Lambo.

    25 is Bulls**t, yes they’re owned by VAG but lamborghini has its own rd team, factory, standards, etc..
    skoda is more like vw as theirs cars share a lot of components (chassis i.e.)

    Most cars under the GM umbrella are exactly the same. The Vauxhall/Opel Insignia is the same as the Buick Regal, only the badge is changed.

    Also Friendly’s ice cream and most supermarkets are made in the same factories. They are made using the same vats and all. Just different labels.

    Similac by abbot nutritions is the same as Kirkland. Had a friend that worked at the plant. The would stop the line and just change out the similac container with Kirkland.
