The Goodwood Festival of Speed 2013, to be held on the grounds of Goodwood Estate from July 11 to July 14, is going to witness the unveiling of Skoda’s new debutant the 2013 Octavia vRS (Laura RS in India) as per the firm’s announcement. The Octavia vRS is the sports version of the 2013 Octavia that made its global debut last year in the month of December.
This Czech auto manufacturer made sports car is expected to be making use of a 2.0 liter TFSI petrol engine that will churn out approx 220 bhp and 350 Nm of torque. Apart from the 250 bhp petrol version suggestion, there is going to be a turbocharged 2.0 liter diesel engine version also. The power will be transmitted to the wheels through the six-speed manual.
Given that Skoda is possessed by VW and has access to a big parts bin it is expected that Skoda might also present the alternative of a DSG double-clutch together with paddle shifters.
In order to differentiate it from the standard variant, the sport version will have a sportier body, boot mounted spoiler, alloy wheels, different graphic scheme and revised suspension setup.
Skoda had rolled out the last Octavia 200 vRS during the run of the preceding vehicle in the nation, we can anticipate that they will introduce this machine in either Laura or Octavia shape a few months after its worldwide introduction.
