I am confused. The Octavia vRS in post 1, 33 and post 43 look a mite different. The one in post 1 has the radiator grill crome rimmed, post 33 is fully smoked and post 43 is again crome rimmed and has tame alloy wheels.

The post 33 one is a looker and the most aggressive, esp the wheels. Anyhow i have already decided to have mine looking like number 33 .

On the looks front, I feel its a step-up from the current vRS. True to the tradition of VAG performance variants (GTi, vRS etc.), they have gone with a minimalist approach with the exteriors combined with nice sporty interiors.

OOOOh... is the gadget next to the hand brake an adjustable cup holder ? The rear seat arm rest (i read else where) has an adjustable cup holder.
The good parts :The seats, steering wheel and the dashboard (with a peak) look fundu.
The bad parts : they have done away with the Laura's organ type pedals and i don't like the 3 round and protruding climatiser knobs. Also this class of car should have a button start, has that been missed out on this vRS ?

Beautiful cars these Skodas. Feel like buying one in each colour! I just love their understatedly elegant looks. A mild mannered appearance that belies the devil within!

Got a chance to throw the vRS around a narrow little track in the Czech countryside

The Octavia looks fantastic with the vRS bits, the slight fold-lines on the bumpers, the low ride-height, and the red line on the rear bumper.

I drove the petrol & the diesel, but didn't get too much seat time.

The petrol was just a damn rocket. Effortless acceleration, good brakes with nice feel too. The DSG box wasn't as quick to notice a desired shift as I'd have liked it to be (especially on the descending hairpin).

The diesel engine sounded great for a deisel, and revved happily. There was a buffeting/resonant sound in the cabin, but it might have been from the winter tyres? The brakes were much worse - but probably because the pads were worn out.

This was a quick fringe benefit of going to Prague for the Superb unveiling (2015 Skoda Superb : Official Preview)

Here's a few pics:

Skoda has nailed it with this generation, adding just the right amount of aggression to the understated design. The Octavia 1.8 TSI+ DSG, with its chassis set-up for ordinary commuting, feels plenty fast as it is. This 2.0l 220 horsepower vRS variant with its electronically adjustable suspension will be an absolute riot! It's a pity that India will never see the 'real' vRS in India.

PS That vRS in the trademark Skoda green is yummy!
