Not a limited edition Skoda Octavia vRS Blackline

Ha, probably the dodgiest bit of photoshopping. Ever!

 

I read that Skoda have released a limited edition of 500 special edition vRS BlackLIne models into the UK available in Race Blue, Black or White.

 

I think the outside is a normal facelift version with the exception of 18 inch black Neptune alloy wheels. Inside is a slightly different story because it comes with those gorgeous leather seats as standard instaed of the usual combination of leather, mock suede and sports sock that I've come to know and love over the past six years or so.

 

I've not seen a BlackLine in the flesh (erm..,. I mean metal) so couldn't really imagine what the black wheels would look like so I spent a whole 2 minutes mocking one up in a "before and after" comparison.

 

Even if I fancied a BlackLine, which I'm not sure I do, I wouldn't be buying one because it only comes with a diesel engine. OK, so it does a zillion miles/ kilometres to the gallon / litre but it's a second or so slower to 60. If I wanted a diesel Skoda I'd ....(oh, yeah I've got one of those as well)
