The Japs take the biscuit when it comes to names of car models. Many Hondas, Toyotas, Nissans, etc. have crazy names. But, has anyone heard of this?

UMM Alter - Portuguese, ummmmmmm!

Others:
Citroen Visa - maybe Sachin can help us out with this... go get the Visa power.
Honda Legend - Legendary walloping at hands of the LS and Q45

Ummmm, Somebody over here mentioned Pagani! Horacio Pagani was the founder of the company and therefore named it after himself. This isnt just some name picked out from random. Also, I obviously would think that the Zonda would be meaning something in Italian but I am not sure so can't really defend such an awesome beast regarding this.
