It is the fastest series production Skoda Octavia till date, capable of accelerating from 0-100 km/h in just 6.7 seconds, all the way up to a top speed of 250 km/h (electronically limited).
The engine is mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox, while a 6-speed dual-clutch transmission (automatic) is also available. The Octavia RS 230 is the first Skoda car to be equipped with an electronically controlled limited-slip differential as a standard feature for a highly dynamic cornering experience.
