    Seconded.

    It sounds like some low-effort name for a parody European car.

    "Autobeauty Little"? Seriously?

    In Poland, we call these "kurołapki" ("hencatchers")

    Focus more on the fact that the game's getting a new car than the fact that it's called the "Autobeaty Little" in Italian.

    Just change the brand name of the car, and it'll be perfectly fine.

    Also, the model name is also unrealistic, as most of Italian cars fron that period had numerical names (e.g. Fiat 1400, Fiat 600, Fiat 500, etc.).

    Autobianchi disagrees, but this is mostly a Fiat+VW, and the Beetle also was sold under alphanumerics (1200, 1500, 1303, etc.)

    ...its the name of the frigging car, get over it lol LeGran or Wendover are "terrible" names but no one batted an eye. I think the name is perfect for what it is, a fictional car lol jeez

    Yes, but name of new cars literally translates as "Nice Car."

    That could be possible.

    At least rhese are somewhat realistic - LeGran is similar to LeSabre, LeMans and LeBaron, and Wendover and Bonneville are both US Southwest desert geographical names.

    who cares they arent gonna change it. If anything, the name as it is now plus a displacement reference, like Piccolina 1200 would be cool depending on what motor is installed.

    Could be like the Beetle, where it'd be sold as, say, "Autobello 900" or something.

    Just noticed, I see some cues from Subaru 360 at the front of this car.

    Exactly. "Autobelli" would have worked so much better. "Bello" as a family name is fairly rare in Italy. "Belli", on the other hand, much less so.

    Damn, this looks pretty damn neat. Very intrigued to see what accessories it will come with.
    (I personally have no issues with the name, it s fictional car & a fictional name. Who gives a sh*t)


    Im just suggesting that someone take this & make a Kombi parody.

    Not rejecting any name suggestions here, but i honestly doubt they're going to change it.

    Nadeox is from Italy, if they were going to change it based on the meaning in Italian, wouldn't they have already done it?

    I think its less of a name like "Legran' or "Barstow" which have no real meaning, but more like the equivalent of naming something "Civetta Costoso"

    Well, I think it does not fit, @Duster02 does and @FLyInG 2 YoUr SoUL does. You can't just dismiss criticism like that.
