ŠKODA RS: 40 years of the cult of speed 27 Mag, 2014, 13:17:37 pm Mladá Boleslav, 27 May 2014 – RS – ŠKODA aficionados associate these initials which, according to ŠKODA historians, stand for Rally Sport, with very sporty, racy, classy and dynamic cars. The ŠKODA RS story began in 1974 with the ŠKODA 180 RS and ŠKODA 200 RS racing cars. The legendary ŠKODA 130 RS in the 1970s and 1980s was one of the most successful sports cars of its time. The Czech car makers launched the ŠKODA Octavia RS as the first RS model of the new era in 2000. Then came the ŠKODA Fabia RS in 2003. The new ŠKODA Octavia RS has been the current star of the ŠKODA RS racers for the past year – it is the fastest and most powerful Octavia of all time.
