On the occasion of 110 years of motorsport efforts at Škoda Auto and to celebrate the International Rally Championship title won with its Fabia S2000, Škoda Auto presents a limited edition of the Fabia RS – altogether 200 vehicles in the colours of the championship-winning Fabia S2000. The car is green (Rally Green), with a white roof, white alloy wheels and stickers in S2000 colours.
Presented at this year’s Geneva International Motor Show, the Fabia RS comes with a new four-cylinder engine with double charging. Although just 1.4, this unit offers a power of 132 kW. Along with this powerful engine, the Fabia was 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.
