Skoda ’s 2010 IRC Championship win may not have gotten a ton of headlines from the press, but it certainly hasn’t stopped the automaker from releasing a special edition Fabia RS that was created to celebrate the automaker’s title win in the IRC, or as some folks would call it, the breeding ground and stepping stone towards the more famous WRC .
For their special edition vehicle, Skoda decked the Fabia RS with a Rally Green exterior paint with racing livery all around it and stickers taken from the official championship-winning S2000 rally car. There’s also the addition of a white roof to complement the Rally Green body color, as well as a set of 17-inch alloy wheels to finish off the dazzling look of special edition Fabia RS.
As for performance, Skoda gave the car a turbocharged 1.4-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 177 horsepower and 184 lb/ft of torque and is mated to a 7-speed DSG transmission that accelerates from 0-60 mph in 7.3 seconds with a top speed of 139 mph.
The special edition Fabia RS IRC has yet to be given a price tag by Skoda, but according to the company, the model will only come in limited quantities with only 200 units being built.
