Skoda Octavia RS-P Launched in Australia

Following the Australian debut of the Octavia RS a few days ago, the Czech manufacturer is now revealing an even sportier model called Octavia RS-P. Unfortunately, the car won't be mass produced so it's quite impossible to find one of these at your local dealer but it shows once again that Skoda is capable of bringing more power to its appealing models.

Specifically designed to boast more performance than the Octavia RS, the P model is powered by the 2.0-liter turbo tweaked to provide an extra 3 to 5 kW (4 to 6 horsepower). Enhancements include a three-inch stainless steel mandrel bent exhaust system and performance air-filter, wrote today.

This means the new Octavia RS-P generates a maximum power of 190 kW (255 horsepower) and 350 Nm of torque, the source added.

Just as expected, the car comes with modifications concerning both the exterior and the interior. Black 18-inch alloy wheels, green brake calipers and new badging are some of the upgrades worth mentioning. It boasts fully adjustable damper, Yokohama ADVAN AO48 225/40 R18 tires and 355 mm front discs with four-pot calipers at the rear and 310 mm rear discs.

Inside, the Octavia RS-P doesn't bring so many changes, as the main modifications between this new model and the recently-released Octavia RS consist of the new badging placed on the dashboard.

As previously mentioned, the car is only a concept for the time being and, as far as we're concerned, it won't enter mass production too soon.
