At the launch of the new car Martin Burke told Car Dealer the manufacturer was seriously contemplating a hot version of the saloon car.
‘We are most definitely talking about one,’ said Burke. ‘It would fit very well with our popular VRS line up.’
Skoda already has VRS versions of its Fabia and Octavia models, so it makes sense to add one to the Superb line-up.
Despite what we were told by Burke, a Skoda spokeswoman catergorically denied it was true. However, we still hope it is!
So what could be slotted under the bonnet of a VRS version? Well, being part of the VW Group there’s a whole host of potent powerplants it could borrow.
The most obvious is the one found in the Passat R36. It uses a 3.2-litre V6 unit that produces 296bhp and propels that car on to 60mph in under six seconds – it would make sense for Skoda engineers to start there…
