Celebrating a decade of the Skoda vRS performance sub-brand, a 500bhp version of the current Octavia and dubbed the vRS Bonneville Special, has cracked the 200mph barrier.
With motoring scribbler Richard Meaden at the wheel, the car recorded a run of 202.15mph at the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah yesterday.

The car itself is a production Octavia vRS, with a few choice aerodynamic modifications, which include making it 80mm lower to the ground. There's also a new sub-frame, which houses a race-prepared intercooler.

The 2.0-litre four-cylinder TSI petrol engine remains, but with a larger Garrett turbo fitted. Generating more than 500bhp, and producing 30+ PSI of boost pressure, the Bonneville Octavia vRS also runs on bespoke high-octane race fuel (with water-methanol mix) rather than unleaded petrol.

The car has also been built to Southern California Timing Association (SCTA) safety regs, which means a reinforced roll cage, parachute, fire extinguishers and window cage.





Still a skip though.

See... lower = faster Razz

I don't get these bonneville 'specials'. Basically build a drag car with something similar to the standard one, in the vague shape of a regular car and try and convince idiots that other idiots might think they're driving the same car - is this the name of the game? Laughing

Well it's a production Octavia... running methanol injection.

Wonder if i can fit it to the Golf. That's a VAG to. Same as the 200MPH Octavia.

And a massive turbo... countless uprated internals... blah blah blah. IMO, if you're going to do something like that, make it an insane track weapon rather than something that can do 200 on a 3 mile straight...

In all seriousness... 20v Tubby. Do it Razz
