Default Škoda 'Rally Sport' celebrates 40 years of awesomeness!

Škoda 'Rally Sport' celebrates 40 years of awesomeness!-rs.jpg

No need for an introduction here on what a Skoda RS translates to.
The press release from Skoda Auto reminds us that it is 40 years since Skoda introduced this moniker for 'Speed'.

Some interesting excerpts;
The RS magic is still young at heart, even as the story began in 1974 with the ŠKODA 180 RS and ŠKODA 200 RS racing cars.
They ran in an official motorsport competition for the first time in June 1974, then known as the Skoda Rally.
The 200 RS was powered by a 163PS 2.0-liter engine that could propel the car to a top speed of 210 km/h (130 mph).

The legendary ŠKODA 130 RS in the 1970s and 1980s, also known as 'Porsche of the East' was one of the most successful sports cars of its time.
The rear-engined, RWD car featured a 140PS 1.3-liter four-cylinder engine with speeds reaching 220 km/h (137 mph).

After couple of decades of somberness, the VW takeover paved way for the Octavia RS.
Rest is 'recent history'

Picture above shows the Octavia RS alongside the 200 RS

The pic doesn't seem to do the vRS justice. Here are some pics of the new vRS.

Coming soon. If we're lucky..
