I think "corvette" is a type of ship actually

 

yeah just looked it up, this is from webster

1 : a warship ranking in the old sailing navies next below a frigate

2 : a highly maneuverable armed escort ship that is smaller than a destroyer

What I like:

Corvette, just sounds really cool. (named after a warship)

Viper, Skyline, Firehawk, Diablo(that has to be one of the coolest ever!). I can't beleive no one mentioned the Supra. I don't know if't a word but you can obviosly relate the word to another common word, hint. It's a really creative name. Also I think Honda has a coulpe of good names like, Legend, S2000, and NSX. Again i don't know what they mean but they sound good.

 

Names I hate are Lincoln Town Car, that sounds really corny. I think the worst name ever has to be from a late 80's Chevrolet Celebrity. Now that sucks!!!

i think the japanese have a hard time naming cars in english: camry, accord, civic, corrolla, altima, sentra, imprezza.... etc.

 

Well, Altima is often used in place of Ultima... which would make a lot more sense. Certain English letters or sounds don't translate into Japanese well, such as that case with a/u, l's and r's, and v's and b's.

Yeah, Isdera Commendatore is one sweet name for a car.

 

these are quite good:

veyron

chiron

hunaudieres

boxster

berlinetta

viper

vision ( slr )

detomaso

corvette

lancer

 

BTW, Pajero means in Spain pimp or something

 

When the French say MR2, it sounds like 'merde' which means sh!t in French.
