24. Lancia Scorpion
In 1976, Lancia presented the Scorpion, a U.S.-spec version of its beta Montecarlo model. But for the American market, they couldn’t use the Montecarlo name since Chevrolet already had a Monte Carlo. So, Lancia decided to go with the aggressive Scorpion nameplate.
However, despite the car’s modern looks and technical layout, the Scorpion wasn’t exactly a great performer. Sadly, its four-cylinder engine delivered only 81 HP in U.S. spec. Lancia offered the Scorpion for two years, 1976 and 1977, selling approximately 1,800 of them in America.
