Skoda Octavia vRS Hits 202 mph At Bonneville –

Skoda Octavia vRS

Skoda took a heavily modified Octavia vRS to the Bonneville Salt Flats and managed to reach a top speed of 202.15 mph (325.33 km/h). The engineers from the company’s team in United Kingdom along with REVO Technik fitted the car with the 2.0-liter TSI engine from the VW Group and they’ve tweaked it in order to output 500 hp (507 PS / 373 kW).

However, in one of their previous announcements, Skoda said that this engine will fire between 542-592 hp (550-600 PS / 405-441 kW) and a peak torque of 332 lb.-ft (450 Nm) while using high-octane fuel as well as 26-28 PSI of boost.

The guy behind the wheel was journalist Richard Meaden and he hit that speed during the Bonneville Speed Week.
