The Most Comprehensive Car Logo Collection
It was July 3, 1886 when German inventor Karl Benz took his stationary two-stroke gas engine, a chassis and put the two together. The era of the motor vehicle began. The motorized road-going vehicle was invented on that day and for car guys like us things would never be the same again. Almost immediately, inventors across the world took every conceivable vehicle and appliance and tried to add a high-speed engine. It was Benz Patent Motor Car Number 1, the first proper automobile that started it all.
The Model A was the first product of the Ford Motor Company and its transition from Henry Ford’s concept to a finished product in the hands of customers was balanced on a knife’s edge of cash flow. Thank goodness for car fanatics everywhere that on July 13th, 1903 when three customers made the first payments to the company it was able to stave off bankruptcy and go on to make the car a ubiquitous part of everyday life. It is unclear if the Ford Motor Company hadn’t survived what would have happened to cars as we know them today.
We know what did happen. There was an explosion of what we would now term classic car companies (since most are defunct). Car production took off and the number of car companies skyrocketed with everybody having their take on what makes a car amazing. From custom coachbuilders to mass market producers to the first luxury brands as well as the earliest performance carmakers.
A carmaker’s logo is more than just a symbol used to identify a car company. It reflects their brand, their history and their place in the automotive world. The Ford Motor Company logo is a signature-looking symbol reminiscent of Henry Ford’s signature. BMW decided to symbolize the Bavarian national flag which has a white and blue pattern (despite the fact that many people think it is a rotating propeller). The prancing stallion of Ferrari logo is universally known as is the raging bull of the other Italian brand Lamborghini we love. Each car logo has a story, it means something. That’s why when you see them all together on a car logo page like this it brings it all together, it tells the story of the car industry over time. Here you can find the largest collection of car brands, all sorted A-Z to make life easier.
These car logos are recognizable all over the world. Enjoy.
