WHAT IS IT? Skoda Oc­tavia RS WHYTHE FUSS? Speedy Czech

WHEN’S IT HERE? Early 2014 HOW­MUCH? Less than $40K THE Skoda Oc­tavia gen­er­ally flies un­der the radar but not the RS ver­sion be­ing tweaked now at the Nur­bur­gring for lo­cal de­liv­er­ies next year. It will be packed with more than 160kW of turbo power and the usual go- faster dress- up gear in­clud­ing a rear spoiler and four fat ex­haust pipes. It’s for Golf GTi fans who want some­thing a bit big­ger with a boot.
