Pointless and rude car names.

Recommended Posts

OK, so I was doing some research on my dad's SUV, and as it turned out, the name "Pajero" in Mitsubishi Pajero is Spanish for "wanker"! I laughed hard at that, although there are some more examples of unintentional innuendo in the auto scene:

• Buick LaCrosse – French Canadian slang for masturbation

• Chevrolet LUV – What a generation of US teens had in mind when buying one

• Daihatsu Naked – Why?

• Ford Pinto – Portugese slang for penis. Hopefully never prangs a Honda Fitta

• Honda Fitta – Scandinavian slang for female genitalia

• Isuzu Bighorn – A car name straight out of a 70s sitcom

• Isuzu GIGA 20 Light Dump – Be grateful there’s no Heavy Dump

• Mazda LaPuta – Spanish slang for prostitute

• Mitsubishi Pajero – Spanish slang for wanker

• Willys Jeep – Classic car, classic innuendo

And some car model names that gave me a WTF feeling:

• Mazda Carol

• Mazda Mysterious Utility Wizard

• Mazda Proceed Marvie Will Breeze

• Mitsubishi Lettuce

• Mitsubishi Mum 500 Shall We Join Us

• Nissan Cedric

• Suzuki Alto Afternoon Tea

• Suzuki Every Joy Pop Turbo

• Toyota Cist

• Yamaha Pantryboy Supreme
