The hot hatch vRS version of the latest generation Skoda Fabia will switch to petrol power in the form of Volkswagen’s 1.4 litre TSI engine instead of the current Fabia vRS’s 1.9 litre TDI engine. A switch to turbocharged petrol power was spurred by rising diesel prices in the UK and the higher cost of producing a diesel-powered vehicle, according to Skoda chairman Reinhard Jung.
The current Skoda Fabia vRS based on the previous Skoda Fabia design is powered makes 130hp and 310Nm of torque. 0-100km/h is achievable in 9.5 seconds. Shown above is the early 2007 1000 unit run of the Fabia vRS called the Skoda Fabia vRS Special Edition. – Source
