Final flicker for Skoda’s hot hatch

Fabia vRS bows out with special edition

Skoda Fabia

Skoda is pulling the curtain down on the Fabia vRS, but not before one final swansong.

The sporty Fabia is bowing out with a limited edition called the Special Edition, a name that must have taxed the marketing department no end.

There's no extra oomph, but the Special Edition does come with black leather seats with the car's individual number sewn in, metallic blue paint and red brake callipers.

There's also cruise control and a CD autochanger, and Skoda tells us this all adds up to £2,000 worth of extras.

The price of the Special Edition is £12,990, or £615 more than a standard Fabia vRS.

If you fancy one, you'd better get in quick to nab one of the 1,000 cars being made because it's a strict first come, first served basis before the new Fabia goes on sale in the UK in May.

If you want a new shape Fabia vRS, you'll have to wait until mid-2008.
