Skoda Octavia RS230


Skoda has unveiled its new Octavia RS230, which was first shown at the recent Geneva Motor Show and is set to go on sale across Ireland this July. With a top speed of 250km/h this new RS is the fastest series-produced Octavia of all time. To increase traction this new model is equipped with a limited-slip differential as standard. Just some of the standard equipment includes 19” alloy wheels, new sports seats, black design twin exhausts and front grille. Prices are yet to be confirmed but we would envisage a starting price of €36,500. Commenting on the new Octavia RS230 Raymond Leddy, Head of Marketing for Skoda Ireland said, “Many of us would love to drive a sporty, high performance vehicle but are disinclined to do so because we assume they are impractical, costly and expensive to run. The Octavia RS has always enjoyed a unique proposition discounting these myths. The car offers exceptional luggage and interior spaciousness and fuel economy from just 6.4 l/100km (44 mpg).”
