Excellent work! You know your facts when it comes to cars. Even when it comes to weird stuff.

Oh no!

But hey you can always go over the answers and have another go.

#1. There are more cars than people in...

San Marino is one of the few places in the world where there are more vehicles than people.

This tiny microstate – geographically located in Italy – is home to 34,000 people and 44,200 cars.

#2. Aside from cars, Volkswagen is actually one of the world's largest producers of... what?

Volkswagen famously wants to produce everything in-house, including the sausages that the company’s employees eat during their lunch break.

Last year, they made around 6 million.

#3. Amazingly, only one of these car names is made up, which is it?

Yup, Hyundai never made a car called the ‘Terrific‘.

But believe it or not, the Honda That’s, Daihatsu Naked and Studebaker Dictator really exist.

And it gets worse: Hyundai once made a car called the Scat and another one called the Applause.

The list of cars with bad names is endless and it includes the Dodge Swinger and the Nissan Titan Dump.

#4. Which of these is true?

As a Ferrari owner, there are a lot of things you’re not allowed to do.

Bear in mind, though, owning a Lamborghini may hinder your chances of being allowed to purchase a limited-edition Ferrari.

It sounds crazy but it is absolutely true.
