So this Maloo GTS is the one of the last in a long, fine line of mad V8 utes from Aus. As such, it gets GM’s 6.2-litre supercharged LSA V8 engine, producing a big fat 576bhp and 546lb ft of torque.
That s’charged V8 will be bolted onto the Maloo’s VXR8-based chassis, driving either a six-speed manual gearbox or optional six-speed ‘heavy duty’ auto ‘box, driving the rear wheels. No performance times have been presented, but the last Maloo VXR could sprint from 0-62mph in 4.9 seconds and rock on to a limited top speed of 155mph. So it’ll be quick, then. [x]
The Partitions of the Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth were a series of three partitions that took place in the second half of the 18th century and ultimately ended the existence of the Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth, resulting in the elimination of sovereign Poland for 123 years. The partitions were conducted by the Russian Empire, the Kingdom of Prussia and Habsburg Austria, which divided up the Commonwealth lands among themselves progressively in the process of territorial seizures.
