Skoda Australia has launched a track-focused project car to promote the new vRS.
The Skoda Octavia RS-P features a turbocharged 2.0-litre engine, which produces 254bhp and 258lb ft of torque. A standard Octavia vRS produces 197bhp and the same 258lb ft.
These upgrades have been achieved by a retuned ECU module, a three-inch stainless steel exhaust system and a new enlarged air-filter.
Upgrades include 355mm front and 310mm rear disc brakes, which are hidden behind black 18-inch alloy wheels. It rides on grippy Yokohama Advan tyres.
Additional performance upgrades include reinforced front and rear strut-braces, fully adjustable dampers, and a rear suspension cross-brace.
Completing the look are honeycomb grilles, green brake callipers and subtle RS-P badging.
