It's supposed to be the same as the noun 'galant', meaning 'chivalrous', as in "The galant knight rode to Essex atop his noble steed". I understand you pronounce this 'gal-ant'.
However, most people around here pronounce the proper noun Galant as 'ga-larnt' or 'ga-la-rnt' or use the more common term "VR4"

The proper noun has two 'L's, but yes, you're right.

gal·lant/gəˈlant/
Noun: A man who pays special attention to women.

Sounds about right

but yeah, everyone round here knows the car as a "VR4"

also wtf is with ga-launt? You guys take the U's out of nearly every word that's 'sposed to have one, and then go sticking them in where they don't belong?

The "LAUNT" is supposed to sound like "LAUNCH", that's why the U was put in.

I usually call it the gay'launt, shitbox, beast, or gvr4, depending on my mood and how the car is behaving.

^ How nice, my wife calls it "The fucking car" or most common "piece of shit." It's nice to know that someone's lady calls it by what it is.
