Yes but it can't be raced as an F1 car. Thats all I was saying.

Doesn't seem to roll off the tongue, does it? I've never heard the word pronounced out loud before, but presume it sounds like it should be spelled "Blennum". A forgivable choice, with Bristol having once built the Blenheim bomber, and I guess that was selected from an important (to somebody) battle, in 1704 IIRC. Anyhow, it has more 'zing' then their sequential numbering....but not by much.

I like Manta (Opel) and Vitesse (Triumph); also Carina (Toyota) although, having seen one in motion, perhaps they should have spelled it "Careena".

I recall when we first heard the name Maxima, reported in a road test in IIRC Car & Driver, it was as a higher trim level on the Datsun 810 and they wondered if the base 810 would be called the Minima

I have to say I think Bugatti is one of the most fun to say. The only thing more fun to say is the guy who creted it. I mean cmon just say it is that lovely fake accent we all can do... "Ettore Bugatti".... now tell me thats not fun.
