When I first heard about the Pagani Zonda, I never knew what it was. Infact I was so confused that I thought it was Pagani's Honda. I was left wondering, "Who the hell is this Pagani chap?" Some engine tuner?

What about Hyundai Getz? It gets what? Getz your budget?
Tata Sumo!! I mean sure the name is appropriate but its just a shade better than it being Jumbo!
