Feast your eyes on the most powerful ŠKODA Octavia RS yet, the RS230! Set to arrive in Ireland this July. As its name suggests, the new model produces 230bhp from its 2.0 TSI engine combined to a slick six-speed gearbox.
Thanks to the increased power, the RS230 can cover 0-100km/h in just 6.7 seconds, while it has a potential top speed of 250km/h, making it the fastest production ŠKODA Octavia of all time.
Prices for the new Octavia RS 230 start from just €35,995 (for the hatchback model), and we can’t wait for it to arrive here at Finbarr Galvin Ltd in Bandon. Step inside the new RS230 and you will notice it gets a special black interior and a unique display with a built-in lap timer, electronically controlled seats with memory function, a sporty three-spoke steering wheel and models with the DSG gearbox have paddle shifters behind the steering wheel. Outside, the car features a sporty exhaust tailpipe which gives the car a throaty exhaust note, 19-inch ‘Xtreme’ alloy wheels and also black detailing on the bumper.
For improved handling, the RS230 also gains an electronically-controlled front axle inter-wheel lock system which reduces understeer during acceleration and more precise steering through tight corners. The RS230 is available in both hatchback and combi versions here at Finbarr Galvin Ltd Bandon. Why not call into our showroom today and arrange a test drive in this exhilarating car. This 152 is definitely for you!
