Very unusual pairing from Autocar here: a mid-engined RWD supercar versus a 4WD rally car. The Noble M600 is powered by a 4.4-liter twin-turbo Volvo V8 producing 650 Hp that makes it capable of accelerating from 0 to 100 Km/h in 3 seconds with a top speed exceeding 362 km/h (225 mph). The Skoda Fabia Super 2000 on the other hand, is powered by a 2.0-Liter four cylinder engine producing 265 Hp.
You might think that the Skoda Fabia, being a race car, is a much lighter machine but you'd be wrong! At 1,200 Kg, the two cars weight exactly the same. Does the Skoda rally car have what it takes to keep up with the 650 Hp supercar? Steve Sutcliffe from Autocar will find out for you. Very entertaining to watch with some surprising results.
