|German term or phrase: Manta|
|In the text about Macho.|
|It's another macho car|
A "Manta" was a moderately-priced semi-sports coupe built by General Motors' German Opel subsidiary for many years. The "Manta A" from 1970 to 1975 and the "Manta B" for a few years later, but I don't know exactly when. The target group were young men who didn't earn too much money yet but still wanted a car to impress the girls.

|Thanks everyone. Your suggestion fits my context. Sorry for not providing the text. It's about how we can identify the machos: Am Manta? That's it.|

This is just a guess. Judging from the URLs that came up for Manta, there are lots of Manta jokes around,all referring to a certain type of person driving an Opel Manta.
It would help to know which text you are thinking of (song lyrics?)
