Yeah, it might "Sound Italian enough" but that doesn't mean it isn't a stupid name.
hmmm, i think this will look good with a big wing and slammed to the ground
It's something on the level of naming a Chinese maker "Chingchong".
It's not a matter of meaning. As mentioned here, the only way "Autobello" could have made some sense was a portmanteau with the surname of the founder in it, which is the case here as we found out today.
It's just that it's kinda weak as a name, in my opinion. Just a few tweaks (see my previous post) could have made it a lot better.
By the way... Nadeox1 lives in Italy, but he is quite certainly not of italian descent.
When was the last time they ever changed a cars name? Never. I mean its possible but majority says its fine.
Stop arguing about the name.
If they were going to change the name they would've done it by now.
Out of curiosity , where is he from?

One voice may not be acknowledged, but once more chime in...
Not a very good analogie imo
"Autobello" sounds like a Italian carmaker, it isn't stereo-typically Italian. Naming a Italian car "Italia Pizzeria" would be.
Great to see something than automation car or swap meshes
I really like it i cant wait to drive it!
I think the name works. The company was founded by a guy named Bello, and it makes autos. Also, keep in mind the Beetle was not actually called the Käfer - its real name was the Typ-1. So, stop ｂｕｇｇｅｒｉｎｇ ｔｈｅ ｄｅｖｓ - it will all be fine in the end. Worst comes to worst, we can come up with an unofficial community name for it.
He told in a thread he was Irish but lives in Italy
I was born in Ireland. But my late father was Italian (my mother, tho, is Irish) and I've been living in Italy for about 30 years now. But this is irrelevant and off-topic here.
Ikr if he doesn't asked for proof I wouldn't be off topic
As Italian as eating pizza and spaghetti, with just a bit of Tullamore to wet the throat.
Okay, we should stop talking about car names and what nationality people are, to more OT discussion
Has anyone else noticed the change in branding? I haven't seen the old AB circle logo on the new model...
It's on the steering wheel.
Later models might have the more stylized logo we've seen before, while early ones have the shield logo with full lettering. Who knows.
Speaking of the steering wheel... Bakelite. Yay!
O my, such an astonishing car!
