Not even Len deserves a Skoda!

September 4th, 2014 at 3:30 pm by David Farrar

The Herald reports:

Auckland Mayor has opted for a less fuel efficient official car, just weeks after launching a new strategy to cut the city’s greenhouse gas emissions, it has been reported.

A new Holden Commodore has been delivered to Mr Brown for use as the official mayoral car — his third Holden in seven years, with a carbon footprint more than 70 per cent bigger than some of the alternatives, Radio New Zealand reported.

The Holden Calais V-Series V6 has a carbon footprint 50 per cent bigger than a Skoda Superb and 73 per cent bigger than a Toyota Hybrid Camry, the broadcaster said, and comes just over a month after Mr Brown launched the Low Carbon Auckland Action Plan, which aims to reduce the city’s greenhouse gas emissions by 40 per cent by 2040.

Not even Len Brown should be forced to drive a Skoda!

    A Calais V6 for the Mayor of Auckland. The preferred vehicle over a hybrid Camry and a Skoda…

    Hardly a reason to beat him up.

    Besides, given his ‘track record’, he probably prefers something with room in the back. :P

    A Skoda Superb with the 3.6 V6 is as powerful but nominally less fuel efficient than a Calais, probably the impact of the 4Motion system. The alternative 2.0 TDI is quite a bit less powerful (130 Kw to 220 Kw) but pretty efficient and not all that bad to drive. Typical diesel drive with heaps of low down torque but a somewhat narrow powerband. Superb is about the same size as a Calais (unless I am confusing my Skoda models, I think the Superb is a slightly modded VW Passat.

    These days though, hard to justify a diesel on $ economy, though they can use less fuel. Modern petrol engines are pretty efficient devices.

    I can tell you my choice would be the Camry. I would not object to the Skoda. Maybe a Holden Ute might be better. He can put the missus in the front cab and the mistress in the tray to keep them apart.

    David Farrar, you can now remove your foot from your mouth.
    Have you looked seriously at a current Skoda, I think not.
    They are a serious bloody car.

    You need to get out more. You ignore the salient fact it was the acquiring of the Skoda works in Czechoslovakia that seriously increased Herr Shikelgruber’s war success and now free from Russian domination Skoda has a new and laudible reputation.

    As for Lenny Pants Down Brown the only transport I would give him would be a Tumbril and a one way ticket or the steaming pile of sh#t can freakin walk If that is his preference.

    No he shouldn’t be forced to drive a piece of technological brilliance like the skoda. I wish he’d model his performance on what skoda have achieved in the past twenty years. though.

    What Len Brown needs is a vehicle that can be powered by hot-air, or the reflected brilliance of his shit-eating grin, to save us all some money.

    Perhaps if he had some kind of device attached to his wrist and linked to his personal vehicle, he could get from a to b simply by having his latest bit of fluff phone him for a wanking session. Alternatively he could put wheels on a common or garden table and simply hump it to his destination. If his personal gym is not working perhaps he could (God forbid) walk to his meetings. Of course he would have to take a packet of wet-wipes with him, because everyone who is forced to shake his hand will be made to remember where it had been, how often and for how long. And of course that they paid for the priviledge of getting Len to wank-off when he should have been oh, you know, not bankrupting the city.

    In short, I don’t know why anyone would be concerned with Len’s carbon footprint, he’s probably expended his allocation of a bucket and a half of ‘carbon’ already. As for reducing gas emissions, I’d suggest Len be encouraged to keep his mouth shut every time he feels it is necessary to remind us of his ‘family man’ credentials in a lame effort to sucker respectable hard-working and generally ethical people into voting him into another fat salary which he appears to think have entitled him to screw a) his personal ‘geisha’ as a way of getting over his marriage ‘difficulties’ b) build quixotic rail-monuments to himself that appear to go up the Khyber Pass (missis) c) blow the city budget employing people in jobs they aren’t qualified for d) engage in phone-sex on the taxpayer tab.

    I don’t like the man, If he was driving a car that is equivalent to his moral outlook, it would be ’52 Chevy – ostentatious, energy-guzzling, an obselete relic of a bygone age, narcissistic, chauvinistic and inefficient.

    ps David Garrett I find it hard to believe that you haven’t wanked for thirty years.

    Or didn’t as an MP.

Some models had duel carburettors on the engine to make it go slightly faster.

    I have a skoda. I get all the jokes and sniggers. But the reality is that VW and Audi are well engineered and all this excellent technology comes out in the modern Skoda for a relatively good price. Skoda could have gone the same way as all the british manufacturers. However the Germans came along in 1989 and took over and reorganised for the better. Foreign investment that the Czechs are proud of. I just wish they would come up with a better name than “Superb”

    Michael, my first european car was the Skoda, about 4 years ago now. Loved it. Progressed to the VW Passat equivalent, which is slightly more ‘polished’ with a 2L turbo engine. Fine if your not hauling a load, economical, just not ‘fun’.

    Then decided my big brother was right, tried Audi. Got a second hand A6 Quattro. Fell in love. And 3 months ago the Mrs finally gave in to my whining and said yes to the RS6. This thing is literally howling death, I cannot be happier. When Im towing the boat it feels like its going to pull the bolts out of the trailer :)

    As for Len, I passed up on shaking his mitt a couple of weeks ago. Ive never ever done that before, and probably will never have to again. He held it out with that supercilious grin and I just eyeballed him and moved on. There is no way in hell I want any part of that greebly little oick.

    I’ve got no love for the man & think he should have resigned about 3 times, given the clean green image its clear he should have gone for the Toyota. If he’d chose the Skoda he’d get tarred with the “posh Euro-trash” label – he’s trying desperately to relate to the ‘common man’ with the Holden.

    And I think modern Skoda are still made in the Czech republic, but with an Audi powerplant and VW chassis. Octavia RS = a serious car.

Not pleasant, but true, and no amount of spin can take the truth away. And if you cry bullshit on the book please feel free to further embarrass yourself in proving it is all a left wing conspiracy. p.s I’m not particularly left wing and certainly not Labour.

    You are an angry wee boy, Milk me. Take your teddy to bed and snuggle up tight. Say you are sorry to teddy for behaving like a twat.

    Don’t be afraid of the bogie man. He’s got bigger fish to fry.

    Count slowly to 500 and let the tension ease out. Breath deeply. In through the mouth and slowly out through the nose. Just keep telling yourself that you can be a good person and, when you grow up, it might be so. Maybe take an apple for teacher or nursey tomorrow. It might make you feel good.

    Nighty, nighty.

    Don’t hold your breath then Milk me. Some people have to work for a living so I am off the bed. Say your prayers and ask the angel of karma to forgive you.

    David “Baby Names” Garret. I am not of the Standard, however I do on occasion read its well written posts and intelligent and thought out ensuing discussions, you as an ex Labourite would appreciate it there and I am sure you quietly spend quite a bit of time lurking there.

    I think you’ve lurked a tad too long (6 seconds) and you need to go to the nearest firestation for a decent hose down..

    you FUCKING TOSSER

    If we were having this discussion 100 years ago, it would be about Skoda artillery. It would feature various East European generals saying how good their Skoda guns were. One or two German generals might chime in about how good Skoda’s heavy howitzers were at reducing fortifications. Leige comes to mind.

    Fast forward 90 years, and Skoda cars have an excellent reputation for reasons alluded to above.

    Griff: As DG said, that is a ripper. Milk Wimp: Remember something, your left-wing scum mates are not the only ones that have computer literacy . . . maybe your address should get published along with your details; being so abusive behind a keyboard is typical of gutless scum such as you.

    Surely if he wants to get about in a large impressive powerful vehicle with room for his ‘friends’ he could take the train ?
