Skoda Fabia R5 concept breaks cover at the Essen Motor Show

After teasing the model few weeks ago, the Czech folks at Skoda officially unveiled the Fabia R5 concept at the Essen Motor Show.

Even though it bears the “concept” moniker, the Skoda Fabia R5 will debut next year in the WRC 2 series. Under the hood we find a 1.6-liter petrol engine but we get no details about any other performance figures.

We do know that the four-cylinder engine is linked to a five-speed sequential gearbox. Other features include the required rear wing and roof scoop, MacPherson struts and Michelin tires.
