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

Moderator

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.

Well, if you consider fish as animals, I've always though that Barracuda was one of the best. Triumph Stag was pretty cool too when sorted.

As for big cats, there have been Tigers, Lions, Jaguars, Cheetahs, Cougars, Panthers & Leopards. Some were more cool than others in that group.

Ah yes....the Lynx..

And lest we forget, the Bobcat and the Puma. The early GTB was a pretty decent car and looked pretty cool and decent power, lightweight and a 4.0 straight six.Gtb9.jpg

Personally I think it has to be the AMC Gremlin.
