It takes real greatness to have a supercar bearing your name.
Supercar companies launch special editions of some of their most popular models on a fairly regular basis. There’s always more money to be made. Collectors love nothing more than to get their hands on yet another low-build supercar. The upgrades typically include unique paint colors, interior trims, commemorative plaques (a must), and sometimes but not always engine and performance upgrades. Collectors and fans alike also want special edition supercars to have cool names, and what better way to do that is by naming them after a famous racing driver or auto industry legend.
