Skoda has created a new special edition Fabia vRS to celebrate its Intercontinental Rally Challenge Constructors’ Champion title it won this year.
There will be a limited edition run of 200 of the Fabia vRS S2000 and the UK will get 20.
The special edition model is fitted with a 1.4 TSI 180bhp turbocharged and supercharged engine, which provides a 0-62mph time of 7.3 seconds and 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.
Offered in Rallye Green, with a white roof, white 17-inch ‘Gigaro’ alloy wheels and race livery – similar to those which adorn the IRC championship winning Fabia S2000.
Skoda took part in 11 of this year's 12 IRC events and celebrated victory at seven of them. Besides these wins, Skoda crews achieved a further 17 podium positions.
The Fabia vRS S2000 arrives in the UK in January 2011. Prices will be finalised soon.
