Skoda has even released a promotional video, showing the car competing in a drag race in which it leaves a Porsche Carrera, Ferrari 308 GTB, Honda NSX and Lotus Esprit in its wake.

The turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine, which puts out 276bhp, is matched to an all-wheel-drive chassis, giving the car a 0-62mph time of only 5.8 seconds.

The new version of the Superb will be offered in Skoda’s familiar trim levels of SE L Executive, the new SportLine and Laurin & Klement. Standard equipment on all versions includes 18-inch alloy wheels, satellite navigation, an electrically operated boot, leather upholstery and heated seats.

Prices start from £31,445 for the hatch and £32,745 for the estate.
