What Car Name Makes The Least Sense In English?

Most car names are nouns. A Note. A Mustang. A Probe. Sometimes they're proper nouns and named after places you'd probably never see such a car driven, like the Sorento. Occasionally, you'll get something that can be a verb, like the Juke. All words that make sense in English. And then you get names that are utter nonsense. What car name makes the least sense in English?

Our own Route101 suggested the Camaro, which doesn't actually mean anything. Occasionally, you'll hear someone say it's named after "camaraderie" or it's just an emotional name. I like it, but is it as meaningful as Mustang? Or El Camino?
