With the debut of the Skoda Vision RS concept at the 2018 Paris Motor Show Skoda will provide a first glimpse of a future compact car while ringing in the next design phase for its sporting RS model range. Ahead of the world premiere in October, the Czech brand is releasing design sketches aimed at conveying a first impression of this “dynamic concept car”.
The rear is dominated by a diffuser and an aerodynamically optimised roof spoiler. The Skoda Vision RS is 4,356 millimetres long and 1,810 millimetres wide, with a height of just 1,431 millimetres and a wheelbase of 2,650 millimetres. Incorporating, according to Skoda, clear motor racing references, this car “conveys a taste of the next design phase of the RS performance models while building on Skoda’s 117-year-old motorsport tradition”. The RS letter combination was first introduced in 1974 for the 180 RS and 200 RS rally sports cars. Since 2000, it has been used to identify the performance variants of various Skoda model series.
