Skoda is the third brand from the Volkswagen Group who has announced its presence at the Wörthersee tuning event taking place from May 12–15, 2010.

The first one, the Fabia RS+, features a two-color combination. The green color bears reference to Skoda’s rally achievements and the unique connection with the S2000 while the grey color represents the vehicle’s sporty expression and simplicity. These colors are combined with design details, black spoilers and diffusers, and air exhausts on the bonnet.
The second one, the Octavia RS+ features the same two-color combination, black-tinted headlamps and integrated LED-based taillights, as well as new materials and colors used in the interior.
The two Fabia Super 2000 race cars will be presented by Mattias Kahle, who is supported by Škoda Auto Deutschland, and Raimund Baumschlager of BRR (private team). The Fabia Super 2000 features a two-liter atmospheric four-cylinder petrol engine, a six-speed sequential transmission, and a four-wheel drive system with three mechanical differentials. It made its racing debut in the 2009 Monte Carlo Rally.

Skoda unveiled at the Paris Auto Show the updated version of the Octavia . Although the Czech automaker does not sell to the U.S., they are owned by the Volkswagen Group, so its fun to see what comes out of the VW parts bin. In the case of the Octavia, it shares most of its parts with cars like the VW Golf and Jetta as well as a few from the Audi A3 .
The 2009 Octavia includes some minor tweaks including newly shaped headlamps, radiator grille and a one-piece bumper. The revision to the rear is mainly about new tail lamp covers and a dynamic bumper with integrated cat eyes.
Škoda’s rummage through VW parts continues with the engines including the 1.4-liter TSI engine and turbocharged 1.4 and 1.8-liter gas engines. The higher end powertrains can be combined with a seven-speed twin-clutch automatic DSG transmission. Although Škoda mainly sells rebadged Volkswagen products, the benefit comes in idea that it is VW products at usually a lower price.
The most successful Skoda model, the Octavia will be presented at the Paris Auto Show with mild facelift, similar to the Fabia and Superb, next to Greenline and Sportline models.
Skoda did not revealed any details about the new model, just that the design will be the same as the one found in the Fabia, Roomster and Superb. It was about time considering the the best sold model in the line-up is kind of oldish.
The Greenline models will include a eco-friendly Fabia with a CO2 emission of just 109 g CO2/km and Superb with 136 g CO2/km.
Dating back to the middle of the 1959, the Octavia RS is another model from Skoda that has 2 body specifications. It is available as a hatchback and an estate.
