    Don’t be put off by flashbacks of the old image of Skoda’s, the Octavia actually does look quite alright. See some pictures here.

    Skoda are reported to want Sir Sean Connery to appear in a new TV advert for their cars.

    According to the Daily Telegraph, Skoda are willing to pay Connery £1 million to drive its new Octavia model in an advert to be shown in mainland Europe.

    The paper says the ad will show Connery driving the car through the Scottish highlands before emerging at the Eilean Donan Castle near the Kyle of Lochalsh.

    Connery will be forever linked with Aston Martins thanks to his role as James Bond.
