With the Indian government starting to ease up the COVID-19 lockdowns, Skoda has finally been able to deliver the much talked about Skoda Octavia RS245 in Goa. This was revealed by Skoda Auto India Director Zac Hollis on Twitter. All 200 units of the sedan, each costing Rs 36 lakh (ex-showroom India) have already been sold out . Bookings for the high performance sedan opened on March 1 for a token amount of Rs 1 lakh.

The Octavia RS245 is available in five shades: Rallye Green, Race Blue, Corrida Red, Magic Black and Candy White. It gets cosmetic changes like bigger 18-inch wheels, 15mm lower ground clearance and dedicated RS badges all over.

Interior highlights in the Octavia RS245 include Alcantara sports seats, flat-bottom steering wheel and RS badging. It also gets a digital instrument display and a bigger 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. 

The biggest difference in the Octavia RS245 is under the hood of course. It is powered by the same 2.0-litre TSI engine from the RS230 but in a higher state of tune, making 245PS of power and 370Nm of torque. This makes it 15PS and 50Nm more powerful than the RS230. The 2.0-litre TSI petrol mill is paired to a 7-speed DSG and you also get an electronic limited slip differential to help you put down all that power cleanly. All this gives the sedan a 0-100kmph sprint time of 6.6 seconds and a top speed of 250kmph. It also gets a vRS mode which alters the characteristics of the engine and stability control systems.
