Compare your family with some of the best sports of all time is, speaking colloquially, “come up too”. That is precisely what you have just done Skoda with an advertisement for the Uk version more spicy and quick to of the Skoda Superb, with nothing more, and nothing less, than 280 HP of power, the Skoda Superb 280. And that is, neither short nor lazy, have been proposed to compare your car with a Honda NSX of the nineties, a Porsche 911 Carrera of the eighties, a Lotus Esprit and a Ferrari 308 GTB. What is it really faster than the Skoda Superb that these sports?
Along with the improvement of the security, the power of the engines is one of the aspects that has most improved in recent decades. For sample a button. Today it would cost us define as sporty a car with 160 BHP of power, but that is what gave the Porsche 911S from the sixties. A Ferrari 308 GTB took 6.5 seconds to reach 100 km/h from a standing start. Figures similar to those approvals today a utilitarian cutting sports, and for all the public, such as the Ford Fiesta ST or the Volkswagen Polo GTI.
Is it reasonable to compare some of the best sports of all time with your car?

Definitely not, it is not. For much that we stand before a announcement of fun, and even exciting for the more nostalgic. The scene of the colleagues sitting at a table, which timba poker, playing with their cards of cars, is brilliant. To some, including me, has reminded us of morning recess at school with those letters that you used to play with the technical specifications of the cars of your cards, and tried to guess the of your rivals, with machines of the era, such as the Ferrari F40 or the Lamborghini Diablo.
about this Skoda Superb 280, which is not marketed in Spain, just remember that you are equipped with the engine 2.0 TSI, four-cylinder turbo by get to the 280 HP of power. We speak of a 0 to 100 km/h in 5.8 seconds.
A family of potent, safe and fun, without going too far is the Skoda of the most powerful street never occurred. Will it be as effective in the curve, and as fun, as the sport is facing? Of course not.
