A 7-liter flat-six engine is quite an odd choice for what is clearly meant to be a muscle car (and an imposing-looking one at that), especially since it won’t be very smooth (compared to an OHV crossplane V8 of the same size), but it definitely endows the Madison RGT with the pace, heart and soul of a Rocket, which was also the first recipient of this weird and wonderful engine.
End of production of Rocha Cargo
Rocha Motor Company announced that its Cargo van had stopped production after 16 years on the market, especially due to low demand. The Brazilian manufacturer said that at the moment it has no plans to launch a replacement, directing all its resources in passenger vehicles.
One more kill for VW. Their K/D in brazilian market is something else!
In view of the current high in fuel prices, the two sports cars from Rocha Motor replaced the powerful 7.0 Rocket engine with the also powerful, but much more economical 5.0 used in the Dallas luxury sedan.
