Abt Sportsline Skoda Octavia RS

Skoda Octavia RS received a tuning package from ABT Sportsline and now the 2.0-liter engine is able to deliver 240 horsepower. After fitting an exhaust turbo charger with inter-cooling, the Skoda Octavia RS TFSI can produce 270 horsepower at 5.700 rpm and 350 Nm at 2.900 rpm. It can sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in 6.5 seconds and can reach a top speed of 251 km/h. The model using the iS technology gains higher speeds at lower engine speed and a reduction in fuel consumption by up to four liters per 100 km, but in the same time, a lot of driving pleasure. The tuner took care of the car and made it look not only sportier, but in the same time, more elegant. The available type wheels are the Z4 with 17-inch and Z6 in 18-inch. This is not all. ABT Sportsline offers suspension springs which lower the car by up to 25 mm.

Increase in power and sporty styling for the Skoda Octavia RS
Abt Sportsline has created power increasing tuning packages for the sporty Czech compact car with 2.0 TFSI engine. Through common chip tuning the performance of the standard 200 HP model is increased to 240 HP. In addition, Abt Sportsline´s innovative iS-technology is also applicable to this model. With iS, or intelligent Sport, the potential of modern control electronic is used in a perfect way and combined with a modification of the standard gearing unit, thus bringing about reduced consumption data. The Skoda Octavia RS with iS technology gains greater speeds at lower engine speed and a reduction in fuel consumption by up to four litres per 100 kilometres as well as a surge in driving pleasure at the same time.

Maximum power is gained by fitting an exhaust turbo charger with intercooling. The Skoda Octavia RS TFSI now performs 270 HP at 5700 rpm. Maximum torque tops 350 Nm at 2900 rpm (standard model: 280 Nm). The Octavia sprints to the 100 km/h mark in 6.5 seconds (standard: 7.3 seconds) and top speed reaches 251 km/h (standard: 240 km/h).
