Car names

A local TV station was road testing a car and awarded it marks for the worst name going. It was the Toyota Superb. Given a free choice, I might have gone for the Volkswagen Bora.(Yes Wolfsburg, we all want to have boring cars.) How about the Vauxhall (GM) Nova? Spanish speakers who like sitting in, rather than driving, their cars should appreciate that one. Best of all is the Toyota (again?) MR2. This sounds like 'Toyota Merde' in French. Ford Shit or a Chrysler Crap, anyone?
