Skoda Australia has decided to promote the new Octavia RS by creating a track-focused project car.

Dubbed the Octavia RS-P, the wagon features a turbocharged 2.0-liter engine that produces 190 kW (258 hp) and 350 Nm of torque thanks to a retuned ECU module, a three-inch stainless steel exhaust system, and an enlarged air-filter.

To help bring it to a stop, the RS-P is outfitted with massive 355mm front and 310mm rear brake discs that are backed up by grippy Yokohama ADVAN tires. Other performance upgrades include reinforced front and rear strut-braces, fully adjustable dampers, and a rear suspension cross-brace.

Exterior styling is subtlety aggressive as the car features attractive honey-comb grilles, black 18-inch alloy wheels, green brake calipers, and discrete RS-P badging.
