Rally - Skoda Fabia R5




At this weekend’s Essen Motor Show, ŠKODA will show off its new ŠKODA Fabia R5. Still regarded as a ‘concept’. The car looks remarkably well finished and just about ready to go.

ŠKODA’s Motorsport Director Michal Hrabánek confirmed: “The Fabia R 5 is scheduled to be homologated by mid-2015.”

Details are sketchy but the display board states that the car has a 1.6-litre turbo engine, five-speed sequential gearbox, MacPherson struts and will weigh at least 1230 kilograms.

Customer racing teams have already shown huge interest in the new machine following on from the proven success of the Fabia Super 2000 car.

In the 2014 rally season, ŠKODA and the Fabia Super 2000 achieved a hat-trick of titles in the FIA Asia-Pacific Rally Championship (APRC),  the Drivers’ title in the FIA European Rally Championship and a further five national championships.
