Skoda Octavia vRS hits 227 mph at Bonneville!

Not satisfied with cracking the 200 mph barrier, evo journalist Richard Meaden has taken Škoda UK’s 600 bhp ‘salt spec’ Octavia vRS faster than any other 2.0L forced induction production car, after reaching an incredible 227 mph at the Bonneville Speed Week.

The Octavia’s record breaking runs spanned two days at the legendary five-mile course with a 225.513 mph run last Thursday followed by a 228.647 mph run the day after.

“Our goal was to break 200 mph as a celebration of 10 years of vRS, and we have achieved that, and significantly more. The success is a tribute to everyone who has worked so tirelessly and with such passion to make ŠKODA a world beater,” said Robert Hazelwood, ŠKODA UK Director.
