9.) Nissan Silvia Almighty

Illustration for article titled 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.

This would be a great name if it was the Final Zonda F. Of course, that's not quite true...

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...

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.

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