The most powerful vRS car Skoda has ever made reaches the shores of Blighty in July with a starting price of £27,595. The 2018 Skoda Octavia vRS 245 comes in both hatchback and estate guises and a choice of a six-speed manual or a new seven-speed DSG transmission.

The heart of the Skoda Octavia vRS 245 is a 2.0 TSI four cylinder vRS powerplant with 245 horsepower, hence the name, coupled with a VAQ limited-slip differential. With the standard six-speed manual this bad boy can sprint from 0 to 62 mph in 6.6 seconds for the hatchback and 6.7 seconds for the estate. With the DSG, which costs considerably more, those figures drop to 6.4 and 6.5 seconds respectively.
