The Best Car Names Ever!

This is simple. Put up what you think are the best named/designated cars, globally.

I'll get started.

BMW - Any M car. M1 set the standard
Alfa Romeo - Quadrifoglio (a designation like M)
Buick Grand National GNX
Chevrolet Corvette
Mercedes Benz - Black Series
Lamborghini - Superleggera (it just rolls of the tongue)
Volkswagon - GTi
Ferrari - Daytona (even though it's unofficial)
Lamborghini - Aventador

That's all that springs into mind. Let's keep it going!!

Citroen DS (similar pronounced 'déesse' which means godess)

But to be honest, worst car names ever is more interesting imho.

And maybe worst or best car nicknames. Do cars still have nicknames or is that something from the past?
I struggle to find a modern one... The clownshoe is maybe the last one that comes to mind, and that is probably one only carguys know and not the general public.

thought this was going to be personal car nicknames but I like it - great mentions!

I'll add R8

per the interwebs the namesake is the Le Mans winning prototype but who knows - it just sounds right and fits the design perfectly imo

also have to say Audi's use of e-Tron is much more badass for their electrics vs adding 'i' to the front like BMW has done

I'm sure there is a backstory to the 'i' but surface perception is a ripoff of Apple nomenclature which is lame imo
