Skoda is hard at work on a juiced-up version of the Octavia RS, according to reports out of Europe this week.

The Czech automaker is supposedly dialing up the RS midsizer's power figure to 206kW - an increase of 44kW over the standard RS petrol.

But according to the rumourmill, it won't be the standard 2.0 litre turbocharged petrol mill under this RS' bonnet. One look at the reported power figure and you can probably guess what it will be.

Yes, reports suggest a slightly detuned Golf R engine will be mated to a FWD transmission, and slotted in place of the RS' regular mill.

Why? Next year Skoda will be celebrating the 40th year since the debut of its 130 RS rally car, and industry observers expect the brand to trot out a special edition model to commemorate the event.

If it eventuates, don't expect the high-output Octavia RS to be built in anything but limited numbers. Expect to hear more about Skoda's plans for the RS badge in 2015.
