Explore the world with these cars that have recognisable names
Beyond performance or design, a car’s name is one of its most identifiable features.
Manufacturers can take different paths when it comes to naming their vehicles. German brands like Audi, BMW or Mercedes follow a consistent naming process. Think A-Class, C-Class, E-Class and so on.
Others, like many who will feature below, use the name as an opportunity to create more character or pay tribute to layers of history and heritage that have shaped the vehicles we see today.
Inspiration for any new model can come from the location that it was built, the birthplace of a manufacturer or a just famous backdrop, so we’ve picked out some of the best and most celebrated models to be named after iconic locations.
