This is a digital rendering of the Skoda Superb RS in both the sedan and the station-wagon form. Skoda hasn’t confirmed that this model is being developed, but just like the rest of the Skoda line-up, the Superb is more than worthy to receive the RS badge.
Now, if the Superb RS becomes a reality, it will be the range-topper. This means it will be slotted above the ‘Sportline’ variant that uses a 280bhp 2.0-litre petrol motor engine capable of spinning 350Nm of torque. This powertrain propels the Skoda Superb ‘Sportline’ version to 100kmph from standstill in 5.8sec before topping out at an electronically limited 250kmph. Of course, this essentially means that the Superb RS version would have to beat these numbers.
An ideal source for the Superb RS’ powertrain would be the VW Golf R whose 2.0-litre TSI engine makes 310bhp and 400Nm of torque - enough for a 0-100kmph run in 4.6sec and a top speed of 267kmph. Powered by this engine, the Superb RS will be slightly slower thanks to the additional weight, but it will definitely be quicker than the ‘Sportline’ version.
We shall have more news for you in the time to come, so stay tuned.
