Yip, I remember those the Minjeeta name, was the actual manufacturer's name for the model how's that for market research.

Citreon's CX range had a diesel in it,Citreon were going to call it a 'VD'......until someone suggested they check it's meaning in English.

Similarly the Toyota 'MR2' was sold as the 'MRS' in France....MR Deux sounding too much like Merde.

There is a quicksilver pilot house here called 'DaiTanic'.....makes me chuckle every time.

Lancia were going to call a small car they made in the '80's, the 'y 10'; until someone pointed out, selling a pale chicken in the uk would be difficult

There is a motor boat on the Great Stour called Ffossip, the owner took huge pleasure in telling people what it meant.
