Skoda presents Fabia vRS at Geneva

Skoda is presenting its new Fabia vRS at the Geneva Motor Show this week.

It’s the second sports-tuned car after the Octavia vRS and will be powered by a double-supercharged four-cylinder petrol engine providing 132 kW of power, despite a capacity of just 1.4 litres.

A new compressor-and-turbo combination increases the engine power, making a maximum top speed of 224 km/h possible and acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in just 7.3 seconds. With fuel consumption of 6.4 l/100 km, the Fabia vRS offers very good fuel efficiency, as well as some environmental credentials.

The Fabia vRS boasts an aggressively designed front bumper and integrated fog lamps that can optionally be fitted with daytime running LED lamps. The vehicle’s unique position in the Fabia portfolio is underlined by 17″ lightweight alloy Gigaro wheels developed specially for the vRS, red-painted brake callipers, tinted windows, a new rear bumper with a diffuser and a double exhaust tip. Depending on the colour of the body, the roof, the rear spoiler and wheels for the Fabia vRS will be available in three different shades: black, white and silver.

The vehicle’s sports-tuned chassis with ESP, ABS and ASR is designed for a mix of power and safe driving performance. A tyre pressure monitoring system and an uphill start assistant are also part of the standard equipment.

The Fabia vRS is expected in New Zealand later in 2010 at which point pricing and specification will be announced.
