My car is a Leon - an ice-cool assassin!
Ferrari's Enzo & Citroen Picasso, both named after real people.

Ariel - name of a character from Greek? mythology, before she became a detergent. Speaking of mythology, Fiat have a Ulysses, don't they? Maybe they should keep with the mythology and name their next car the Fiat Reliable. Stuff of legend, and all that.
Ah - Reliant Robin! Or the other way round, I never know which it is.
Today's champ at Wimbledon, (Nissan) Serena. Also the Nissan Figaro.
Morris Minor. Lotus Elise.
I guess Octavia is a girl's name as well as Fabia. Actually, Skoda also had the Estelle. Bit of a trend there.

Of course, all this has been done before by Sniff Petrol, with their "Stars in Cars which have Names that are A Bit Similar" run - Neneh Cherry in the Nissan Cherry was one! Check out www.sniffpetrol.com for the latest issue, with a new twist on the concept. Also, a fully-deserved poke at Audi - anyone who's driven one and thought the handling was like skateboarding on a waterbed will appreciate it! The whole site is a gem.
