Skoda hits 214mph at Bonneville

The guys from Skoda and driver, journalist Richard Meaden, just keep on going faster in their Octavia vRS at Bonneville Speed Week and this time it's 214mph.

It's slightly shy of the 2.0-litre class record of 216 mph, that we reported they were aiming for earlier this week. However, this is still a very impressive effort for what is basically a modified production hatch.
