Skoda Fabia RS Rally 2 Breaks Cover With 300 Horsepower
The fourth-generation Fabia was introduced by Skoda a little over a year ago, and it was only a matter of time before the supermini would take on a racing theme.
the Czech automaker has been able to unveil the new Fabia RS Rally2 which, although it is based on the same MQB A0 platform, has gone through a number of changes.
In comparison to the Fabia RS Rally2's front-wheel-drive configuration and 150 horsepower, the road car is an AWD machine with 291 horsepower.
The car is powered by a four-cylinder engine with a 1.6-liter displacement and it pumps out 430 Newton-meters (316 pound-feet) of torque.
The Fabia RS Rally2 is equipped with mechanical axle differentials front and rear, thanks to Skoda's motorsport division.
Engineers have added electro-hydraulic control of the inter-axle clutch to disengage the front and rear axles via the handbrake.
This feature will come in handy when taking sharp turns. Obviously, the chassis is completely different from the road car, and the wheels are 15 inches (with 300-mm discs)
A special foam is installed on the inside of the Fabia RS Rally2's 82.5-liter fuel tank to reduce the risk of fuel leakage in compliance with FIA regulations.
