vRS Special Edition gets more kit for little more cash
20 February 2007

You can tell that the new Fabia is on the way – Skoda has just released a special edition of the old car.

Based on the top-spec sporty diesel Fabia, the vRS, 1000 special-edition models will be made, all with Race Blue metallic paint and red brake calipers (normal vRSs get green calipers).

Inside, there's black leather upholstery with numbering for each car (1-1000), cruise control, a six-disc CD changer and dark-tinted glass.

Under the bonnet there's the same grunty 1.9-litre turbodiesel powerplant with 128bhp and 236lb ft that's helped shift 11,000 Fabia vRSs over the past four years.

If you'd like to buy one, it'll cost a very reasonable £12,990 - £615 more than the standard vRS.

There shouldn't be any difficulty remembering what you're after when you get to the showroom, either, because those marketing geniuses at Skoda have called it the Fabia vRS Special Edition.
