Community Question: What is the coolest car named after an animal?

Manufacturers select cars names in a variety of way, sometimes out of thin air (looking at you Camaro), but some of the best derive from the animal kingdom. Whether Ford Mustang or Dodge Colt, or maybe you are more of a Road Runner type of person, let us know in the comments below which is your favorite.

The Scarab. Lance Reventlow had the wit to ignore all the boring sexy names and named his car after a dung beetle.

Saw a pic of the 63 Cougar prototype on this post. Not too sure about the best name but absolutely a beautiful car. Never knew it existed and will start research soon. WOW!! My choice would have to be FALCON or the HELL CAT. I think we sometimes become the Animal behind the wheel. (RoadHog) (Snail) (Fat Cat) (Dumb A--).
