Skoda launches Fabia RS Edition S2000

Skoda launches Fabia RS Edition S2000

To celebrate its 110 years of tradition in motorsports Skoda is launching a limited edition of its Fabia RS: the Edition S2000.

The special edition will be limited to 200 vehicles that will feature the colours of the hampionship-winning Fabia S2000. The car is green (Rally Green), with a white roof, white alloy wheels and has stickers in S2000 colours.

The Fabia RS has been presented at this year’s Geneva Motor Show and is powered by a new four-cylinder engine with double charging. Although it is a 1.4 unit, this engine has a power output of 132 kW (177 HP).

Another feature of the Fabia RS can be found on the braking system. In fact, the RS version is the first car in its segment to offer XDS, a system that electronically brakes the inside front wheel as the car corners in order to increase torque on the outside front wheel for a high level of agility in bends. 

Throughout the last 110 years the Czech brand has brought to world of motorsports vehicles that have made numerous remarkable achievements. The most recent one is another win at the International Rally Championship (IRC).

By marking its presence in motorsport Skoda also acquires expertise that is used in its car development efforts. Some examples include the RS versions of the Octavia and Fabia, which are popular amongst sporty drivers.
