    Haha, I like that one.

    How about Great Torque Inhere?

    I used to think it was Golf Turbo something.

    Well, Golf Turbo Injected then.... Close enough.

    Why not just call it Gran Tourismo Injection, skip the fancy Italian. I also read that GTI stands for "Grand Tourisme Injection" (french, pronounce it more or less as you would in English, just make the end of "injection" sound like Adam Sandler's Cajun guy is saying it).
