As part of the VW Group not represented in North America, koda has begun testing on a prototype rally car based on its new Fabia model. Designed to be used in the Super 2000 rally category, the vehicle is based on the second-generation Fabia and, in compliance with FIA regulations, is equipped with a 2.0-liter, four-cylinder gasoline engine, a six-speed sequential transmission and four-wheel drive.

Dr Eckhard Scholz, Head of koda's Technological Development, said: "We are glad to have started testing the Fabia Super 2000. This year we're planning to optimize and certify the vehicle so we can use it on both national and international events. We're also planning to offer the vehicle to private teams. Based on a customer service arrangement, further development work on the vehicle will be done in cooperation with our importers worldwide."Head of Corporate Communications, Martin Lauer, added: "Our history of over 100 years of motorsport involvement is unique, and we're proud to be able to continue the story with the Fabia Super 2000."

There is no word yet about whether there will be a production version of this two-liter all-wheel drive car, and don't expect it to reach US shores if it does go into production. However, with VW's part-sharing programs, it's possible that developments from this rally program could trickle down into the cars we drive
