Skoda Octavia vRS & Skoda Fabia vRS
Skoda have been producing the Octavia vRS and Fabia vRS for a few years now and have created a couple of gems. Having an alliance with VAG they have the best choice of all the VW and Audi components.
Skoda Octavia vRS (2013)
The Mark 3 2013 Skoda Octavia vRS (13 - present), made its UK debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed on Thursday 11th July 2013.
The Mark 2 Skoda Octavia vRS (05 - 13) has been developed using the MK5 Golf chassis and running gear plus the engine from the Golf GTI producing 200 bhp. With a top speed of 149mph and 0-62 in 7.3 seconds is actually slightly better than the MK5 Golf GTI. Add the largest boot in its class and you have a very pratical hot hatch.
The Mark 1 Skoda Octavia vRS (01 - 05) they choose the MK4 Golf chassis and running gear plus the engine from the Audi TT producing 180 bhp. What a combination, smooth power delivery, 0-62 in 7.5 seconds and a top speed of 146mph, comfortable to drive and faultless reliability and practical.
Skoda Octavia vRS R anyone? Here's a teaser for you. What would a standard 270 bhp Octavia vRS R be like?
Now that VW have released the new VW Golf GTI R MK6 with a very impressive 270bhp from the an uprated GTI engine. Imagine 0-62mph under 6 seconds top speed 155mph plus and all for under £25k on a Skoda Octavia vRS (R) sounds good. If it happens you read it here first. (vRSWorld).

The Skoda Fabia vRS will be available to buy from 29 July 2010 from £15,700, with a 0-62mph time of 7.3 and a top speed of 143mph. Using the same 1.4 TSI engine with a staggering 178bhp on tap as found in Seat's Ibiza Cupra and VW's Polo GTI, we at vRS World, expect demand to be high.
