Many cars have cool animal names, like Mustang, Cobra, or RAM, which are meant to describe the spirit of the car. A lot of those reference a cat, i.e. Jaguar, Ford Puma, Cougar. I recently learned the Pajero name came from a Spanish wanker cat too:

The Leopardus pajeros is a wild cat living in South America.
It looks a bit bored, a bit stupid, and it is fat. Who would choose this name for such a magnificent car? I’ll call mine a Shogun from now on.
