An Audi with a simple name - yeah right. It would be:

Audi A6 2.0 TDFSI S-line CDTF Company Director special edition Tdfsi+

And whenever people posted on forums about it, they would include the full name.

How about the Vauxhall Corse Bell end edition. 1.1 litres of unadulterated power, 19in Khan style alloy wheels, only available in platinum white with carbon look roof and bonnet and Fog lights that are impossible to turn off. Optional large bore exhaust.

Sales brochure could read "Real head turner, car is mint, has embarrassed porches at the lights. Must be seen to be believed"

Comes with a microscopic sewing machine engine and a speedometer with 0 and 47 in a massive font. Special edition with BACK OFF etched on the rear bumper. This version also features rear fogs set to 'floodlight' and no indicators. No rear windows, so these have been replaced with scenes from nature as there is no need to look back.

Toyota Prius - c**t edition. oh.... wait

The Honda Civic 'Lady Genitals'

Base spec engine, manual windows, seating from a prison waiting room, the stereo takes up the whole boot and comes pre-loaded with a selection of dodgy Eastern European trance music. The exhaust is big enough to house a whole family of badgers and makes a noise loud enough to shake the faeces from your rectum as it drives past your house.

It's only available in black primer, with stickers needlessly covering the whole rear window, and one front wing. Limited edition cuddly toy clipped to the towing eye, but so covered is road salt and dirt that the driver appears to have inadvertently attached a medium sized turd to the back of his car.

The Impreza "Couldn't Run a Real One" Edition, it has all the visual STi trimmings and a drain pipe exhuast but none of that wallet-hurting turbocharged malarky under the bonnet. Ideally it should come in a bright colour as well so that all the slappers round the estate notice you.

Oh wait... that's just a Sport Special hehe

Daewoo ‘I Can’t Drive’ Small Car
7 year warranty; because the car will do no more than 20 miles a week
Excellent rear vision; so you can see other road users almost pile into the back of you as you stop at every island when there’s no reason to
Cheap as chips price; because you view driving as a chore and as such plastic interior and boring looks mean little to you
Low top speed; which doesn’t matter because you drive at 25 mph everywhere you go

The Ford Ka 'Green One'

- Aimed at 18 year old girls with no interest in cars. Pre-dinged body panels and faded rear bumber. Extra large rear view mirror to assist with the putting on of mascara, and an eye height phone holder for reading/typing text messages. The engine comes with no oil in the sump, and all 4 tyres are 10 psi short of inflated. Girls can now answer the questions 'What do you drive?' with 'The Green One'...and mean it!

  • (very closely modelled on a girl I once saw driving a 'Green One' through Selly Oak whilst alternating between applying mascara and sending a text...presumably explaining the dinged panels.
Also, the Cadilac Escalade 'Dog-matic'. Aimed at premiership footballers. Tinted windows, sat nav that only goes to isolated beauty spots, and large wipedown rear seats. (ALternatively aimed at the Pope, with an insence holder and Bible talking book on the radio)
