9.) Nissan Silvia Almighty

The Ten Worst 'Special Edition' Car Names

Introduced in late 1992, the Almighty slotted between the J's and Q's, offering options not available on J's, but not including all the standard features of Q's. So in this sense "almighty" meant "exactly mediocre." They did have a cool badge you can grab for $20, though.

4.) Fiat 500 Abarth 695 Tributo Ferrari

The Ten Worst 'Special Edition' Car Names

I love this car. The attitude, the sound, the looks. But the Ferrari badging? Not so much. It's even worse than a Harley Davidson Edition F150...

2.) Bugatti Veyron World Record Edition

The Ten Worst 'Special Edition' Car Names


This is another case of a name that would be good if it were true. When these cars were sold they were speed-limited, meaning that you spent a ton of money for a World Record Edition that couldn't set a world record. Bugatti eventually fixed this.

1.) Jeep Comanche Eliminator

The Ten Worst 'Special Edition' Car Names

It was the Comanche Eliminator. Eliminating Comanches since 1986! Who thought this was a good idea? What about the "trail of tires" edition?
