The definitive collection of colossal cock-ups that the motoring industry would rather forget.

The automotive industry is responsible for some of the most beautiful designs ever to grace the face of the planet. But it’s had its fair share of bad days at the office, too…

Whether it’s Ford designing a car that looks like a lady’s nether parts, Toyota accidentally calling their car ‘the merde’ (in France) or Mitsubishi unveiling their new ‘Starion’ after mishearing calls from head office in Japan to call it the ‘Stallion’, the list of great motoring cock-ups of our time is a long and distinguished one – and the time has come to name and shame.

From F1 drivers being run over by marshalling cars to marketing departments filling car showrooms with real live ponies (and, therefore, large piles of straw and poo) in an attempt to attract the family market, Top Gear has delved deep into the annals of motoring history to bring you the definitive list that the automotive industry would rather forget.
