Škoda UK has released a new TV commercial for the Fabia vRS. The 60 second spot shows a more "aggressive" approach to building its high-performance hot hatch which is in dark contrast to the Fabia's "Cake" commercial from 2007.
The new advert carrying the "Made of Meaner Stuff" strapline presents a team of sociopathic production line workers building the "meaner" Fabia vRS. Taking place in a secret location within the Škoda factory, the commerical opens with the original "Cake" commerical playing on a television screen, which is enthusiastically shut down with a piercing crossbow arrow. Then various "mean" events unfold showing the Fabia's chassis made of bone, a snake-powered engine and unorthodox finishing techniques.
Billed as the fastest production Fabia ever built, the Fabia vRS features a 1.4 litre TSI turbo and supercharged engine producing 180 bhp. The Fabia vRS accelerates from 0-62 mph in 7.3 seconds via a seven speed DSG transmission while returning a combined fuel economy of 45.6 mpg (6.2l/100km).
The Škoda Fabia vRS is priced from £15,700 OTR.
