You may have read over the weekend that AOL Cars' James Batchelor was amongst the first to get a taste of Skoda's brand new Octavia VRS in a fabulous (but understandably tense) run up the hill at the Goodwood Festival of Speed.

The sporty Skoda is not the only car we managed to sample in the balmy heat at Lord March's estate, as Volvo kindly offered a passenger ride in one of its most eyebrow-raising creations to date: the S60 Polestar.
