Skoda Kodiaq RS breaks Nurburgring lap record

-    The seven-seater SUV clocked the Nordschleife in 9:29.84 minutes.
-    The Kodiaq RS is powered by a diesel motor from Passat producing 237bhp and 500Nm
-    It will debut at the 2018 Paris Motor Show.

Skoda has officially announced the lap timing of the forthcoming Kodiaq RS around the Green Hell where the SUV was being tested for quite some time now. The RS badged Kodiaq did a lap around the 21 kilometre Nordschleife in just 9:29.84 minutes setting a lap record for a seven-seater around the German race track.

The Kodiaq RS was driven by ´Nurburgring Queen´ Sabine Schmitz. She is the only woman to have won the 24 Hours Nürburgring; and has completed more than 30,000 laps of the track in all type of cars. The Kodiaq RS had no modification whatsoever, asserts the Czech carmaker. It was precisely the same version that will be unveiled to the public in October. The testing condition was bright and sunny all day long.

Powering the Kodiaq RS is the same BiTDI engine turbodiesel motor powering the Volkswagen Passat and the Tiguan. Its confirmed output is 237bhp of power at 4,000 rpm and a massive 500Nm of torque from 1,750 rpm. The power is sent to four-wheel-drive system via an automatic DCT. The SUV will reportedly pull to a 100kmph from standstill in just 6.1 seconds.

The recent spied images confirm that the Kodiaq RS will adopt a sportier styling with an aggressive body kit. The revised bumpers, both fore and aft with side skirts, will make the Kodiaq look sporty. The SUV will also sit on a larger set of wheels. On the inside, there will be sport-seats with vRS monikers, all-black theme cabin with contrast red-stitching and a sporty steering wheel.

Skoda officially debuts the Kodiaq RS at the 2018 Paris Motor Show in October.
