On long drives out to digsites, we like to entertain ourselves by putting the word "anal" in front of car names.

I don't want to ride in an Anal Expedition. Or Anal Rodeo. Anal Intrigue on the other hand...

I think most of that list should be disqualified since the names are generally from asian countries where
English isn't the first language.  But I guess that doesn't make them any less absurd I suppose.

And, list fails without the Pagani Huarya.

Nah, that one goes on the list of the most hideously ugly cars ever made. Paying that much and getting a Huarya is like paying for an extremely attractive escort for a date...and getting the chick from the "ermahgerd" meme.

This really is an Engrish list not a bad car names list. Trying awful damn hard to get humor from what basically is just bad translations out of asian languages into english.

...except she's the best you've ever had, the best you ever will have, and you have difficulty walking after you're done. Perhaps suffer a temporary nerve-induced blackout during.

Think Pam from Archer.

That aside, I don't get how you can call it one of the worst looking cars ever made. Is it an awkward looking super/hypercar? I'd agree with that. Is it better looking than an Aztek/Mini Clubman/Pacer/Renault eSpacé/Edsel/Hummer H3/Gremlin/B9 Tribeca/etc.? I don't really need to answer that. Even the most butterface beach-bodied Brazilian will be more appealing than a deuce-and-a-half with the face of an angel. A very chubby angel.

it's not enough to simply have a daft name, they had to stencil it on the side of the car as well.

Don't feel like going through the whole slideshow, but I hope they didn't forget the Ford Probe.

Vauxhall named its city car Adam and the world snickered. It's an interesting choice of name, unorthodox, maybe even weird, but is it one of the worst car names ever? Well, there's just something about cars given human names. Exotic or unusual ones seem to work OK (see Alfa Romeo's Giulietta), but everyday names have a certain naffness about them. Would you drive a car called Geoff, Paul or Dave? If Vauxhall has its way you might get your chance sooner than you think.

Yeah, what type of moron would ever name their car Geoff?

You go to hell and you die.

There is nothing boring about the RX-8, and Mazda's naming convention makes perfect sense to me.

Besides, I'd rather have a Huarya than the new Ferrari...LaFerrari.

Now, to be fair, like most Ferraris, this may look better in motion and in person.  But that name is unforgivable.

I loved Fiestas in Spain since it wasn't as small as most of the cars.
