A lot of car names are warm and inviting, indicating their safety or reliability. Some car names, however, have intentionally scary names, often telling drivers something about their scary-fast performance to get a reaction out of us that just makes us want to get behind the wheel.

With Halloween upon us, it got us thinking about the things that scare us. Here are six cars with spooky names. Be afraid ... Be very afraid.

Dodge Demon

Dodge Demon

The most powerful car on our list also might have the scariest name. With its supercharged 6.2-liter V8 cranking out 808 horsepower, the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon gives its competitors on the drag strip plenty to be scared of. The Challenger Demon brings back an old name in Mopar history. The original Dodge Demon was the high-performance variant of the Dodge Dart in the early 1970s. Legend says the name was changed to the Dart Sport as a response to complaints from religious groups that were just too spooked by the name and the devilish logo. Find a Dodge Challenger for sale

Dodge Hellcat

Dodge Hellcat

A pair of living legends bear another spooky Dodge name. The SRT Hellcat variants of the Dodge Charger and the Dodge Challenger might not make quite as much power as the Demon, but you'll just have to settle for "only" 717 hp. The great thing about the Hellcat is that you can choose your fighter -- the Challenger coupe if you want a meaner look or the Charger sedan if you need a measure of practicality with your fire-breathing muscle car. Find a Dodge Challenger for sale or Find a Dodge Charger for sale

Ford Raptor

Ford Raptor

The Ford F-150 Raptor pushes the boundaries of what's possible for performance in a stock pickup truck. Both the original V8-powered SVT Raptor and the current Raptor have a twin-turbo V6 with a slew of off-road upgrades, and they're iconic not only for their performance but for their ferocious aesthetics. The Raptor name is a perfect fit for this truck. It's fast, it's scary and you don't want to get in its way. Find a Ford F-150 for sale

Lamborghini Diablo

Lamborghini Diablo

Diablo is the Spanish word for "devil" -- a perfect name for a menacing Lamborghini. The Lamborghini Diablo was a midengine exotic car made from 1990-2001, and it has the distinction of being the first production Lamborghini capable of a top speed of more than 200 mph. That's a frighteningly fast speed, especially for the early 1990s. The Diablo also had a look to match its demonic name and its devilish performance. Find a Lamborghini Diablo for sale

Rolls-Royce Phantom

Rolls-Royce Phantom

Currently in its eighth generation, the Rolls-Royce Phantom has been in production on and off since the 1920s. The Phantom is the ultimate luxury sedan with a dominant presence that is described nicely in its name. It's the ghost that haunts all other luxury cars hoping to achieve such a level of opulence. From the twin-turbo V12 engine to the fully bespoke interior to the nearly half-million-dollar starting price, the Phantom casts a shadow over the competition. Find a Rolls-Royce Phantom for sale

Rolls-Royce Wraith

Rolls-Royce Wraith

The Rolls-Royce Wraith is a coupe based on the Rolls-Royce Ghost, but the name just sounds cooler. "Wraith" is an old Scottish word for ghost or spirit, and it's a perfect name for this massive luxury coupe. This is the first Rolls-Royce pillarless hardtop coupe since the 1950s, and it's a bit of a throwback to old-school luxury coupes -- but with a decidedly modern look. It's powered by the same twin-turbo V12 under the hood of the Phantom, and it's right at home in this grand tourer. Find a Rolls-Royce Wraith for sale
