Derek Slack Motors can reveal SKODA have finally unleashed their new beast! Introducing the new Octavia vRS 230: popular as an unmarked police car, the 230 can reach 155mph (a decent speed for a car voted the most practical family vehicle). In the same time it takes to say,‘What Car? Car of the Year 2015, Best Family Car’ the 230 has already reached 0- 60mph, that’s roughly 6.7 seconds.
Power now reaches the front wheels via an electronically controlled differential. Although our marketing manager confesses not to having the faintest idea what any of that means, essentially the front half of the four-wheel-drive system, dishes out power across the axle as it sees fit, so less of it escapes in the form of smoke and squeals, which will help put down the car’s power as you accelerate out of tight corners instead of spinning a wheel uselessly.
We’ll keep you posted on news of SKODA’s ‘speed-machine’. If you can’t wait that long call Derek Slack Motors on: 01642 256 100.
