The Latest Rally-spec Skoda Fabia
Skoda Fabia is probably not going to be mentioned, but it has become an absolute sensation in rallying.
A total of twelve world titles and over 1,700 outright rally victories were won by the Fabia Rally2 and Rally2 evo between 2015 and 2022.
In addition to its wide arches, wings, and plenty of downforce, the RS is based on the latest fourth-generation Fabia road car.
Skoda's new Hyper Green motorsport colour, seen recently on the all-electric Enyaq Coupe iV vRS, may also be familiar to you.
There's a new engine here based on VW Group's 2.0-litre EA888 four-cylinder turbo, but it's been downsized to 1.6-litres with 285bhp and 317lb ft of torque for Rally2. Should still suffice.
With a five-speed sequential gearbox and super short-gearing, it can reach 124 mph. Neither front nor rear axles have electronic traction aids, so the vehicle has four-wheel drive.
With 35.8 meters of steel tubing used for the roll cage, as well as a strong protected and repositioned fuel tank, Skoda's motorsport team is offering two different braking systems to customer teams.
Due to its longer wheelbase, the latest Fabia has a completely redesigned suspension. Inside, a bigger main display should make it easier to operate the car during rallies - hopefully drivers.
