You're real close.
Here's a bit more trivia: Henry Ford owned one and the first Triumph motor cycles had Minerva engines.
Minerva was the virgin goddess of music, poetry, medicine, wisdom, commerce, weaving, crafts, magic. I don't know why she was a virgin for so long...

Thumbs up Minerva

As far as I recall they were built in Belgium by a Dutch owner,(company).

Minerva was, I think the Atruscan name given for the same Greek Goddess Athena, & later the Romans adopted her (Minerva) as well.

Keith, yes, it would be a Camaro! When the Camaro was introduced to the Automotive press someone asked what a Camaro was. Here is the answer.. "a small, vicious animal that eats Mustangs."

Now, on to the next challenge!

Q: What is one of (4) the most expensive ($19 million,) and least used vehicle ever produced?
