The record-breaking car

A Skoda Octavia vRS, wrapped by signage specialist, Creative FX, and driven by automotive journalist, Richard Meaden, at Bonneville Speed Week, has broken the record for fastest ever Skoda, after recording a speed of 202.15mph.

The 500BHP Skoda Octavia vRS became one of the few cars to break the 200mph barrier, and the first Skoda ever, on Monday 15th August at Bonneville Speed Week in Utah, America.

The record-breaking car was sporting a special ‘10’ silver and green livery as it entered the history books. Produced and installed by vehicle wrapping specialist, Creative FX, the livery marks the tenth anniversary of the vRS range and 110 years of Skoda’s participation in motorsport.

Robert Hazlewood, Director for Skoda UK, says: “Months of rigorous planning, testing and preparation have all been worthwhile. The entire team has done a fantastic job. Our thanks go out to Richard on an incredible drive.”

The Octavia vRS used is a factory-built model, which has been specially modified for this race. As well as lowering the ride height and increasing break horsepower from 200 to 500BHP; the car had to include a reinforced roll cage, parachute, fire extinguishers and window cage, to meet Southern California Timing Association (SCTA) regulations.

Bonneville Speed Week, which is held near Salt Lake City every August, consists of six days of racing on salt flats. Its spectacular scenery and racing conditions make it one of the most popular speed events in the world.

During the three remaining days of speed week, the team will now focus on beating the 2.0 litre production car record of 216mph.

Creative FX is a Bromley-based company specialising in vehicle livery and automotive services, as well as signage and display projects.

We specialise in the design, production and installation of vehicle wraps for both the commercial and retail sectors. Any design can be used from simple text and logo to a fully photographic vehicle wrap. We also provide stoneguard and window tinting services.
