Skoda Fabia RS+ and Octavia RS+ Concepts

Skoda has release the design sketches and information on the Fabia RS+ and Octavia RS+ concept models, which will be presented at the 29th GTI Wörthersee tuning event which takes place in Austria on 12-15 May 2010.


Skoda Octavia RS+ ConceptŠkoda Auto is going to appear at the GTI tuning event at the Wörthersee Austrian lake on 12-15 May, 2010 with the tuned Fabia RS+ & Octavia RS+ vehicles plus two Fabia Super 2000 race cars.

Designed by Škoda Auto designers, the display cars will be used to present special optical packets and colour adaptations based on self-adhesive foils.

The Fabia RS+ concept is based on the Fabia RS. “The adapted version of the series-production car shows the potential and the characteristically pure and clear build of the Fabia’s body, such as the separation of the roof by arranging the windows in a continuous line.

"The two-colour combination underlines the car’s unique architecture – the green colour bears reference to our rally achievements and the unique connection with the S2000, the grey colour represents the vehicle’s sporty expression and simplicity combined with design details”, says Jozef Kaban, Head of Design at Škoda Auto.

The Fabia RS+ has been designed specially for the Wörthersee event. Its shape highlights the optical width of the car. Special features include the headlamps and the radiator grille that give the car a sharp look.

Skoda Fabia RS+ ConceptThe front and the tail are fitted with black spoilers and diffusers, and the bonnet is decorated, for the first time in this model, with visible air exhausts. The interior, including sports seats, comes with new materials in the colours of this concept car.

“The Octavia RS+ has its roots in the successful series-production model. The objective of this concept car is to stress the attractiveness and unique character of the RS model line. While the two-colour paint and the adhesive foils underline the car’s elegance, the spoiler kit highlights the sporty expression of this vehicle. The features that give the Octavia RS+ a striking look include black-tinted headlamps & integrated LED-based taillights, as well as new materials and colours used in the interior “, adds Kaban.

Furthermore, Škoda Auto is going to present two Fabia Super 2000 race cars.

The GTI event in 2009 saw about 5,500 exhibitors and over 130,000 visitors. The key event topics, i.e., motorsport and tuning, also appear in the accompanying programme that includes attractions such as airbrush “tattooing”, freefall simulations and a giant model car race track.
