The cars name is as eye-catching as the design. After all, it is the main attribute of the model, and she will forever be remembered for her baptism. Therefore, manufacturers hold several meetings before deciding on a name. Sometimes it happens that the bad thing is called, and manufacturers decide to name the vehicles in the same way that the bad thing is known.
Devil Cars: Lamborghini Diablo
When we think of cars named after the Devil, the Lamborghini supercar is the first car that comes to mind. Launched in the 1990s to replace the Countach (which had a really cool name), Diablo didn’t actually use the seven-legged name well.
In fact, the model followed Lamborghini’s tradition of naming its cars after historical bulls. Coincidentally, the chosen animal was called Diablo. In other words, like it or not, the car ended up with a devilish name and became one of the icons of the brand.
Dodge Challenger Demon
Dodge is a brand that likes to use its name. To celebrate the farewell of the V8 engine in the Challenger, the brand chose to use it again. The Challenger Demon 170 is the final version of the muscle car, and its production is limited to 3,000 cars and has a power of 1,039 horsepower, when fueled with American ethanol, which uses 15% gasoline in its composition.
In the 1960s, Willys was using the Interlagos as a sports car in Brazil. The brand decided to launch a more exciting model, and presented the Capita during the 1964 Motor Show. Despite attracting attention, mainly due to its 148 hp 2.6 engine, the car was never produced.
According to the Bible, the beast is a representation of the evil associated with the Antichrist. It turns out that Kia, inadvertently, ended up referencing it when it launched its commercial truck. The idea of the Korean brand was to say that its car is the best in the A-segment, which represents these models. The result was the word Beast, which, in addition to being a synonym for those fools in Brazil, also refers to this quote from the Bible.
100 years ago, Fiat launched one of its most diabolical cars, both in name and performance. Mephistopheles is an ally of Lucifer in the German tradition, and is the name chosen for the car that uses a 21.7 320 hp engine, of marine origin. This was in the 1920s.
