Skoda Kodiaq RS set a record for the NurburgringJune 14, 2018
The prototype of the charged crossover Skoda Kodiaq RS set the record of the “Northern loop” of the Nurburgring among seven-seat all-terrain vehicles. The car under control of Sabine Schmitz drove the track in 9 minutes 29.84 seconds.
The all-wheel drive all-terrain vehicle is equipped with a two-liter diesel biturbo four with a capacity of 239 horsepower (500 Nm) and a robotic transmission. As expected, with such a motor Skoda Kodiaq RS can accelerate to the first 100 km/h in 6.5 seconds.
Previously, it was also assumed that the second unit in the line of the charged model would be a 250-horsepower gasoline engine with a capacity of two liters.
The absolute record of the Nürburgring among all-terrain vehicles at the moment belongs to the 510-hp Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio. Last year, the car drove a 20.8-kilometer track in 7 minutes 51.7 seconds.
