No, but there was that economy-oriented "eta" engine in the mid '80s that produced the stupefying 325e.

None of the automakers mentioned so far have anything to compare with the inspiring moniker of the Steyr Pinzgauer 710K "Funkkommando". Listen to it. Funkkommando. The mere name instills confidence.
