It's no secret that we're fans of the Škoda Fabia S2000 rally car. The good news for us Europeans is that VW's Czech brand has decided to integrate some of that racing DNA (at least appearance-wise) into a Fabia RS model scheduled to debut at Wörthersee 2010.

This is Škoda's first visit to the big GTI gathering, and they've obviously come prepared. A green roof and alloys aping those used on the S2000 racer are the Fabia RS's showcase elements, along with a brutal lower front lip, smoked glass all around, darkened chrome work, a rear spoiler, and side skirts. The Fabia RS joins Volkswagen goodies like the Golf GTI Adidas, which will also be formally unveiled, and it will be on display from May 14-16.

      Yesterday I was at my local Skoda dealer, and there was a cool Fabia.
      As a Skoda rally car, big OZ rims, etc.
      I Hope we see some Skoda's in the USA!
      They are cheap, good looking, and it is a VW! Maybe not the best interior, but nicer than some other American cars :D ;)

      The wheels are so ghetto. No use for rally.
      Put a decent set of skins on with some sidewall and suspension height for the real world.

        It is just a rendering, if you look at the Skoda Octavia concept renderings at the Skoda Plant in the Czech-Republic you see a Skoda Octavia with 22"+ rims! :D

      Attention Autobloggers,

      This is not the Skoda Fabia RS (which has already been shown in production-spec), but a concept RS+ which will be shown at Wörthersee alongside the Octavia RS+.

      No production plans for these two +'es imho.

      Best looking Skoda I've seen in a long time.

      Love Skoda. The diesel Fabia vRS is a monumentally sensible enthusiast's car.

      I really wish Skodas were available here. They are great cars these days and could be a very nice econo range for VW (even though they don't feel cheap at all).

      The greenhouse of this car looks a lot like that of the current Suzuki Swift 4 door.
