Skoda Superb Turbo by Rothe Motorsport

Motorvision, the online car magazine, recently got behind the wheel of a high-speed Skoda Superb. Tweaked by Frankfurt-based tuning specialist Rothe Motorsport, its restrained looks hide a big surprise.

Starting out with Skoda’s 194 kW (260 hp) 3.6 L AWD model, Rothe exchanges the engine for one of its turbocharged 3.2 L V6 units, as previously seen in the Golf R32, and also adds a full stainless steel exhaust system. The result is a Superb that produces 384 kW (515 hp) and 600 Nm (443 lb-ft) of torque – enough for a 0-100 km/h (62 mph) time of 3.8 seconds, while the 200 km/h mark appears in just 13.3 s. Top speed is 305 km/h (189 mph).

The only real giveaway to this car’s potential is those 19-inch OZ alloys, and the Audi RS 6 brakes behind them. Sensibly, Rothe also fitted a Bilstein coilover suspension kit.

Interested parties will need to stump up € 82,000.
