10 Trim Names That'll Make You Cringe

Spend some time on a few car manufacturers' configurators, and you'll find some naff and at times bizarre names for trim packages and options

Remind me later

1. MG3 - 'White On The Tiles' paint

There are some really terrible car paint names out there, but this one for the MG3 is especially awful.

2. Vauxhall Adam Glam/Slam/Jam etc

The whole Adam range is a festival of cringe. We could easily fill this list with just the colour options available, which include the likes of White My Fire, Saturday White Fever and James Blond. Oh dear.

3. Fiat 500 Colour Therapy

This sounds more like a form of pseudoscientific alternative medicine than an actual car.

4. Vauxhall Corsa Sting

Want to combine your love of small Vauxhalls and the former Police frontman? Here’s your car!

5. Mini 'Pepper' and 'Chili' packs

Because chillies and pepper are both hot and spicy, therefore fun. We assume.

6. Lincoln MKZ Black Label Indulgence

If you’re going to indulge in something, it probably won’t be a Lincoln saloon. No matter how much Matthew McConaughey tries to convince you otherwise.

7. VW Take up!/Move up!/High up!/Rock up!

As if giving its car a title starting with a lower case letter wasn’t irritating enough, VW has felt the need to come up with a range of trim options like this…

8. Aston Martin 'Lipstick'

Really, Aston? Could you not think of anything better to call this option?

9. Bentley Mulsanne Speed 'Dark Energy'

As you’d expect, the super-luxurious Bentley Mulsanne speed has a dizzying number of options. This particular package features a number of interior and exterior colour options, although it’s lumbered with a name that sounds like something from World of Warcraft.

10. Ford Ka Grand Prix III

There are two burning questions that come with this trim package: what does it have to do with any Grand Prix, and where are I and II?
