All new Skoda Octavia RS interiors revealed, to participate in Goodwood FOS
Anjan Ravi, I'm a true-blooded petrolhead. Hope you enjoy our news stories, launch coverages, motorshow coverages and test drive reports.
The all new Skoda Octavia RS was revealed only a month ago. At that time, Skoda had not issued interior images of the car. Hence, we could only visualize the Alcantara lined sporty seats in the otherwise well laid out interior.
Today, Skoda has sent us a couple of images showing the interiors of the new RS. Skoda reconfirms that the RS would make its world debut on July 10 at the 2013 Goodwood Festival of Speed. The all new Octy RS would be driven up the 1.7 kilometer hill and that would be the first time we get to hear what it sounds like.
The 2.0-liter TSI engine produces 220bhp of power. 0-100km/h takes only 6.8 seconds while the top-speed rated at 248km/h makes it the fastest production Skoda in history.
Skoda will begin accepting bookings for the RS sedan and Combi in a few months. Meanwhile, Skoda India continues to test the new Octavia which we think should be launched in the country by the festive season.
Skoda CEO Winfried Vahland said -
The new Octavia RS is about pure emotion and brings ŠKODA’s concentrated power to the road. This makes Goodwood the perfect setting for the debut of the fastest Octavia of all time. More than 100,000 visitors, fascinating motorsport that you can touch, automobile traditions and enthusiasm – it is this unique mixture which creates the charm of Goodwood. The new Octavia RS will be the highlight of this motorsport feast.
