Skoda used the GTI event at the Austrian lake Wörthersee over 12 to 15 May to display customized versions of its Fabia RS and Octavia RS models along with two Fabia Super 2000 race cars.

The fans' attention was of course focused on the tuned Fabia RS+ and Octavia RS+ that were used to present special color adaptations based on self-adhesive foils. Inspired by the Fabia S2000 rally car, the Fabia RS+ features a two-tone gray and lime paint theme with matching alloy wheels and a spoiler kit that includes front spoiler, side skirts and a rear diffuser. The hot hatch also gets a new bonnet with sculpted air vents, smoked headlamps and a black front grille as well as an updated interior with bucket seats and a sportier trim.

The Octavia RS+ boasts similar changes, featuring the same grey exterior color with contrasting lime alloy wheels and a more aggressive body kit with front and rear spoilers and a new rear diffuser. Other exterior highlights include the black-tinted headlamps, integrated LED-based taillights and blacked-out front grille. The upgraded interior with lime-colored accents and leather surface stitching round off the changes on the Octavia RS+.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.
