The Japanese ones are all very amusing, but they were aimed at the local market which responds to that kind of thing. The genuinely funny ones are where a manufacturer tries to sell something in a place where the name is ridiculous. Such as the MR2 in France, or (Toyota again), their small car that was aimed at the US market. The US importer saw the early design documents and begged them not to call it the "Toyolet".

In which case, I think I have the winner, Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the Mercedes Vito, otherwise known to Norwegians as the Mercedes Cu*t.
