Skoda Octavia RS, a name that brings a smile to enthusiasts' faces and a proud feel to owners who own this badass sedan. However, legends are those who take the modification to another level and add extra horses to their whip. The earlier RS230 and newer-gen RS245 are very much in the talk about making more power, we shouldn't forget the one who started this trend. In this article, we have a modified Skoda Octavia vRS first-gen that makes 210 bhp.
Yes, a modified Skoda Octavia vRS first-gen which used to come with a 5-speed manual gearbox. Simple mechanicals and no technology but just pure bliss of power and performance. This first-gen vRS belongs to Paul and this sedan is clean as a whistle.
The stock unit on this one makes 150 bhp but it has been finely tuned to churn out an extra 60 horses. This now makes 210 bhp. This modified Skoda Octavia vRS sees a stage 2 Evotech motorsport ECU tune which comes with pops and crackles. We have shown you several Polo with pops and crackle sound before.
This 1.8-litre turbocharged engine was used in Audi TT at that time and was the only engine at that time which came with 5 valves per cylinder. This modified one also gets Milltek sport downpipe with a Remus endcan and a BMC DIA intake system.
Furthermore, to improve the ride quality it gets an adjustable suspension upgrade from D2 and EBD Brake rotors along with Brembo pads to decrease the braking distance. It also gets NGK Iridium spark plugs, Forge motorsport blow-off valve and 18-inch wheels wrapped in 225/40 18 rubber.
The stock vRS used to come with 16-inch wheels in 205/55 R16 alloy wheels but this one is updated. The stock used to cover 0-100 km/h sprint in a matter of 7.9 seconds but we are guessing this lap time is improved with the added power. This FWD car gets a top speed of 235 km/h.
