New tuning concepts don't add any power but feature a new sport-design optics package.

Skoda will be sending an Octavia RS+ and a Fabia RS+ - specially tuned concept variants of those models - to the GTI Wörthersee tuning event this week.

The two models don't come with any engine tuning work for additional power - but the new sport designs are from Skoda Auto designers themselves.

With the use of self-adhesive foils for optics, as well as the addition of aerodynamic tuning parts, the effect is a very distinct-looking GTI-like set of Skoda models.

The Fabia RS+ gets a new radiator grill and headlamps while air intakes adorn the bonnet. At the back are a spoiler and diffuser in black. Touches of green are added (see the wheel in the photos) to mark the brand's color and reference its rally-racing history.

The Octavia RS+ gets a similar do-over - with the addition of headlights in black tint and integrated LED-based taillamps.

The standard Skoda Fabia vRS comes with a twin-charged 1.4 liter TSI engine with 180 PS (132 kW / 178 bhp). The production Octavia vRS is fitted with either a 2.0 liter TFSI engine with 200 PS (147 kW) or a 2.0 liter TDI diesel with 170 PS (125 kW).

The GTI Wörthersee tuning event takes place on the Wörthersee Lake in Austria from May 12 to May 15.
