Like we were discussing in Chevy thread, Sometimes, there are automotive brand names which are written something and pronounced totally other way round. Let’s share those interesting names and their pronunciations here which is sure going to do a tongue twisting exercise for everyone.

For Example -:
Chevrolet is pronounced as Shev-row-lay
Gallardo is pronounced as Ga-yar-do
Murcielago is pronounced as Mur-chie-lago
Renault
is pronounced as Ren-o

Well, I was working with some French Engineers some time back, and they actually used to pronounce Renault something like "Ono"!!

Another thing, the Tucson is supposed to be pronounced as Tuss-Ahnn, but many people pronounce it as Tuck-Son(Including me:tongue: when I was very young, 5-6years ago)

AMG has got the pronunciation for Renault correct. Am saying this because Renault has come to my college for campus interview and during their speeches they pronounced it that way.
