With the FABIA R2, Škoda is introducing a new rally car in the market, which is to be used in the rally category R2. The car was developed, extensively tested, and prepared to its use in rallies for almost two years.
In principle, the Fabia R2 is based on the series model of the popular small car, but there are significant differences in its engine, undercarriage, axle kinematics, and gearbox.
Compared to the series model, the undercarriage was changed considerably and the axle kinematics was adapted for its application in motor sports.
Furthermore, the Fabia R2 possesses a sequentially operated gearbox. Under the hood, a powerful 1.6 l 16V engine puts out 132 kW.
The maximum torque amounts to 194Nm at 5500 rpm.
