ŠKODA Celebrates 20 Years of vRS

A lot has changed in the 120 years since bicycle manufacturers Václav Laurin and Václav Klement followed the launch of their first motorbike, the L&K Slavia, with a performance-orientated derivative, the Slavia B-type. More than a century later, however, some things have remained the same; this sporting ethos persists, imbued in the brand that would go on to become ŠKODA, with exhilarating, driver-focussed variants of popular, practical models still being produced to this day.

Over the decades, cars like the Popular Monte Carlo, 966 Supersport, 180/200 RS, 130RS and Fabia R5 have all contributed to ŠKODA’s rich racing history. From leading their class at Le Mans, to winning the European Touring Car Championship and dominating WRC2, these machines epitomise ŠKODA’s competitive spirit. It is in the road-going vRS range, however, that Laurin and Klement’s legacy is perhaps best continued, offering everyday buyers power, performance and excitement to cars wearing the famous three letter badge.

With 2021 marking the 20th anniversary of the arrival of vRS in the UK, we reflect on two decades of models that have struck a chord with car enthusiasts across the country.
