In 2011, ŠKODA UK broke the world record for fastest 2.0 litre supercharged production car on the salt flats at Bonneville, USA. Now six years later, the Octavia vRS is still breaking barriers and turning heads.
Chris Evans said in an interview with the Mail on Sunday "If SKODA keeps making cars as brilliant as this new hot hatch, in the end we'll all be driving one". The former Top Gear presenter has fallen in love with the car all over again. Hes the current owner of a Superb Sportline and states although that is morme powerful it shares its speed over all four wheels, whereas the vRS has its 245hp 245hp going exclusively, and instantaneously, to the front axle” with spectacular results.
Matt Saunders, Chief Tester at Autocar stated “Past vRS estates had potential – this one actually achieves it.” Now the top car in the hot hatch section people can expect big things from the vRS 245.
The vRS will have an exclusive range of clothing and accessories which will be released later on in 2017.
