Engine 4.6 litre V8 supercharged

Rinspeed has a long tradition of developing eyebrow raising concept cars to show off at the Geneva Motor Show every year. The E-GO Rocket was no exception.

Unveiled at the 1998 show the E-GO Rocket was a thoroughly unpractical single seat sports car with unique styling inspired by the Bonneville salt flats land speed record cars of the 1940's.

Mounted just behind the driver was a 4.6 litre supercharged V8 from Hyundai. This engine produced 410 horsepower and was capable of propelling the E-GO Rocket at speeds of up to 162 mph. Thanks to the lightweight composite bodyshell the 0-60 mph sprint took just 4.8 seconds.

Despite the racing influences and open-air cockpit the interior was well appointed and featured satellite navigation and a multimedia system with CD/radio. The seat was upholstered in a mixture of leather and denim.
