Skoda marks RallyScotland win 16 | 11 | 2010

    JUST A MONTH after it dominated RallyScotland and clinched the Intercontinental Rally Championship, Skoda has unveiled a special edition Fabia vRS S2000 to commemorate the all-conquering Fabia S2000.

    The special edition model — limited to 200 cars worldwide and with just 20 coming to the UK — is fitted with a 1.4 TSI 180bhp turbocharged and supercharged engine, which catapults the car from standstill to 62mph in 7.3secs and on to a top speed of 139mph.  The engine is mated to a seven-speed DSG twin-clutch gearbox which can operate in two modes – fully automated and manual Tiptronic.

    The limited edition comes in Rallye Green with a white roof, white 17in Gigaro alloys and race livery, similar to those which adorn the IRC championship winning Fabia S2000.

    Škoda took part in 11 of this year's 12 IRC events winning seven of them, including RallyScotland last month. Besides these wins, Škoda crews achieved a further 17 podium positions.

    The Fabia vRS S2000 will be available at Skoda's Scottish dealership network from January. Prices will be announced closer to the launch date.
