OCTAVIA RS II 2005-2013
ŠKODA launched the RS version, in both liftback and estate versions, one year after the premiere of the OCTAVIA II. Customers could choose between two engines, a 2.0 TFSI 147 kW (liftback and estate, maximum speed 240 km/h and 238 km/h, respectively, acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h 7.3 sec and 7.5 sec, respectively) and a turbodiesel 2.0 TDI 125 kW (liftback and estate, maximum speed 225 km/h and 224 km/h, respectively, acceleration 8.5 sec and 8.6 sec, respectively).
As an option, the car was available with a six-speed automatic DSG. In 2011 the OCTAVIA RS Bonneville Special achieved a speed of 365 km/h on a salt flat in Utah to become the then fastest “production car with a supercharged petrol engine of under two litres”.
