Being a fan of affordable performance and Skodas does come with its perks these days, as I think the Octavia vRS is a wonderful blend of go-fast bits and true family value. We're talking a cavernous boot big enough for any dog and 220 PS from a 2.0-liter TSI engine.
But is that enough? I think now, especially considering the "same" 2.0-liter TSI gets upgraded to 265/280 PS in the SEAT Leon Cupra and 300 PS if you go for the Audi S3/Golf 7 R. Wouldn't it be great if there was a car worthy of that sort of performance?

Hmmmm… I know, how about a Skoda Superb vRS? That car is already a flagship of sorts, but beyond the heavy V6 version, it doesn't pack umph. What we need is an all-wheel drive, turbocharged luxury family car to finally settle the score and cement Skoda's reputation.

Just in case you can't picture what that car would look like, here's a rendering to give you a firm idea, courtesy of Theophilus Chin.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
