G.A.S. analyses hundreds of car advertising websites every single day from all over the world.
There are many languages each with their own alphabet, which can get pretty interesting when it comes to translating them back into English. The trickiest websites are those written in Chinese (China, Hong Kong and Taiwan in particular).
Vehicle searches combined with google translation produce a number of amusing outcomes which can cause us headaches as well as making us chuckle.

Here are just a few:
