Understands the name of 3 supercars

Have you ever noticed the name of supercars that combines numbers and letters? Perhaps one of You doesn't know what the meaning of that.

Apparently those combination are not just sweetener, it turns out that there's a meaning too! Yes, like humans, the name of each car also has meaning. Similarly, when giving a name, it should not be just sound nice or look good.

Supercars like the Lamborghini Centenario, Bugatti Chiron, or Pagani Huayra are the same. In addition to the names that are easily spelled, mentioned but remembered as well, and after that supercars usually have names that use a combination of letters and numbers.

As quoted by Zing, the combination of letters and numbers has a deeper meaning to explain the car itself. And the car naming by using a combination of numbers and letters can be seen in the supercars of Lamborghini, Ferrari and McLaren as follows,

1. Lamborghini
Lamborghini supercar models like Huracan, Aventador, or Murcielago use the names of famous Spaniard bulls. After that name, usually there are rows of letters and numbers, such as LP700-4 or LP580-2. Those combinations are not just accessories. The 'LP' in Italian means 'Longitudinale Posteriore' which means vertical engine.

Then the number 700 or 580 is a number that refers to the amount of power produced by the engine, which is 700 hp or 580 hp. This number can be a fixed number or only an estimate. While the last number, like 2 or 4 refers to the drive system, 2-wheel or 4-wheel drive system.

But, rich people as well as Lamborghini users actually don't care about the meaning of the name above. So, at this time Lamborghini no longer uses the character of a combination of numbers and letters. It can be seen to the Lamborghini Urus, Huracan EVO, or Aventador SVJ.

2. Ferrari
While another Italian premium car manufacturers, Ferrari apparently also has a combination of numbers and letters that have a certain meaning. But unlike Lamborghini, the row of numbers on the Ferrari car does not refer to the power produced by the engine. Rather it refers to the engine capacity.

For example, Ferrari 458, which means 4.5L engine capacity and V8 engine. Previously this was applied to Ferrari 360 and F430, which meant using 3.6L and 4.3L engines. While for the Ferrari 488 GTB, the 488 number means the 488cc engine capacity.

Whereas in the last generation cars like the Ferrari F8 Tributo, it has a different meaning. This car is equipped with the most powerful Ferrari engine has ever made, ie 3.9L twin-turbo. Then the number 8 means? That refers to the 8-cylinder. And Tributo itself means Thank You.

3. McLaren
Apparently, naming like this is also contagious to the McLaren-made supercars. It's just that McLaren uses a simpler naming system. Like a supercar with the names 540C, 570S, 650S, and 720S refers to the power produced by the engine.

For example, the 570S has 570 PS of power, of which 1 PS or power unit is equivalent to 0.98 hp. While the letter 'S' that follows the row of numbers means 'Shaped'. The letter 'S' on 570S means Sport Series. Whereas 'S' on 650S and 720S means Super Series.

But the McLaren supercars also has names like 540C, 600LT, or 675LT. Naming like the last three is an exception. The letter 'C' can mean Casual which refers to the supercar concept for daily used. While these two letters 'LT' means the Long Tail, which represents the supercar physical type with a long stern.

At the end, now we're able to understand the meaning of combination of numbers and letters on those three supercar above. O..eM..Gee.. Or see Ares Maserati concept.. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | ZING]
