What's in a name? Juliet thinks a rose by any other name would still smell fairly nice, but Shakespeare's tragedy says otherwise. She dies because of her name. It's important, especially in the automotive realm. What's the coolest car name?
The recent trend towards the alphanumerical in car naming is unfortunate and lame, because no one wants to sing about "LP670 Sally." These are cars, not dishwasher models. One supermobile bucking this trend is the Pagani Zonda. Named for an Argentine wind, or whatever, it sounds magical, powerful, and expensive. When you speak the car's full name in a quiet room it almost sounds like an incantation: Pagani Zonda, Pagani Zonda, Pagani Zonda! It's like casting a spell that turns everything into gold. It sends chills up your spine and zeroes into your bank account. Pagani Zonda, Pagani Zonda, Pagani Zonda.
Can you think of a car name that's cast a better spell on you?
