Its interior might not have always been the most luxurious, but (barring a few unfortunate years) Corvettes have always delivered cheap speed.

No matter what you associate it with, the word “magnum” is automatically cool.

Dodge took a different approach and named its ute the much-more-aggressive-sounding Rampage.

Something called an Eclipse or something called a Talon?

It also translates to “red head.” Advertisement – Continue Reading Below Advertisement – Continue Reading Below 11 of 25 Hudson Hornet If you’ve ever been stung by a wasp, you know it’s an animal that packs way more sting than its size would suggest. For a car that competed in the early years of NASCAR, it’s perfect.

Pirates will always be cool.

Not in this car you aren’t, but it’s still an awesome name.

It may as well mean “ghost,” but taking the more creative route when it comes to names is always a plus.

That sounds perfect for the name of a sports car.
