what would you say is a more grammatically accurate name?
It is grammatically accurate. It's just rather unplausible - "Burrasca" is the italian word for storms at sea, it might suit a motorboat... a sportscar, not so much.
To name a spotscar, I'd go for something conceptually similar, but more "romantic", suggestive and metaphoric... like, Maserati evoked stormy and tumultuous performance by naming their cars after winds, for example.
to be honest, I was kind of going with the "tumultuous nature" theme that "bolide" and "fulmine" seem to follow.
(maybe I could make some excuse about it being related to a "barchetta" model of some sort?)
Other Ideas for names included: ciclone, tuono, saetta, tempesta, uragano, bufera, fenice, even maybe something lazy like "gran turismo"
In other news, I tidied up the front render, I should have mentioned I intend to give it half-pop-up light covers, like a alfa montreal, lambo jarama, and a VL calais. (the most italian of all)
"Barchetta" implies two seats, open top and close to no windshield at all. Not what you have here.
"Ciclone" kinda works. "Saetta" would be more suitable for a citycar due to it's "small and quick" connotation - see the Ghia Saetta, which later evolved into the Ford Ka.
Lazy names are often the best in these cases. When it comes to Ferrari, names were usually just an appendage to the numeric identifier.
The odd roofline of your creation suggests accurate aerodynamic research - even at the expense of styling - so I'd focus on this aspect. Something quick, swift and piercing, like a dart. I would suggest "Dardo", but Pininfarina beat me to it...
just realised I closed Blender without exporting it first an hour and a half now gone.
You could've used the autosave feature in Blender to restore the latest save. It takes backups every minute, I think
