'RA', as I recall, was also shortened slang for the IRA (typical usage: 'The RA'.) That obviously wouldn't have been very politically correct. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm off to test drive the new Ford Taliban.
What's more, RU sounds like 'Roo' and it'd be ludicrous to give a car a name that sounded like 'Kangaroo' wouldn't it?
