Skoda Octavia VRS was launched in the Indian market back in 2017, and at the 2020 Auto Expo, the carmaker came up with an updated version. The Octavia VRS gets propelled by a 2.0-litre turbo-petrol TSI mill that produces power and torque outputs of 230bhp and 350 Nm, respectively, The motor comes paired with a 7-speed DSG transmission. In its stock format, the sporty sedan can sprint from 0-100 in just 6.8 seconds and can attain a top speed of 250kmph. The car earlier Octy RS had a price tag of Rs 24.6 lakhs (ex-showroom) and it ended up costing somewhere around Rs 30 lakh on the road. On the other hand, the new model is priced at Rs 36 lakh (ex-showroom) and the deliveries will initiate once the lockdown is over.

Recently, we found a video of a modified Skoda Octavia VRS which is nearly 40% more powerful than the regular version. This car is highly customized, not in terms of styling or features but with performance. This sedan derives power from the same 2.0-litre petrol mill, but it puts out 425bhp of power output. What this means is that this car makes even more power than the Ford Mustang, which has a 5.0-litre V8 motor that produces 395bhp of peak power.

This modified Skoda Octavia VRS sedan has customizations worth Rs 16 lakhs, thereby taking the overall cost of the car up to Rs 46 lakhs. The sedan gets Stage 3 ECU remapping, which makes this one of the rarest cars in the country to run on this tune. In India, Stage 3 engine vehicles are quite difficult to maintain and also quite tough to customize, which is the major reason for them being a rarity.
