    I don't get it. It's been totally stripped out and has racing spec surely?

    There is a 9 page article about this skoda in the latest EVO magazine written by the driver for this speed run . the only thing that was original from the production car was the body shell and the bulk of the engine everything else has been changed at some point
    Driving vauxhall,s for 30 + years
    and still loving it

    quote OfficialFabiaRS: "The car is a factory-fresh production Octavia vRS, with some changes made to improve aerodynamics and performance. It meets all the specifications for the fastest 2.0-litre supercharged production car record."

    I guess the point is to show what can be achieved with the engine if you want to get into modifying cars for serious performance -- and evidently it is the best 2.0T tuning platform available at the moment.

    Use of the word 'production' is totally misleading IMO.

    How many skoda dealers have these in stock, or could even get one for you....err...zero!
