Talking about cars with your friends will always get you in the discussion about car logos. It simply happens. Well, to give you heads up about car logos we embed here a beautiful Carthrottle video depicting 10 car logos and telling you whole lot about them.
Believe it or not, there is a lot to be learned about car logos and this video is only a tip of the iceberg with its funny, yet educational approach to the issue.
Nowadays, making a car logo is sort of a marketing stunt that comes as a result of meticulous market research. Designers try to find the right formula which will bring some kind of wings to the car logo and make it more mysterious than it needs to be. Long before, when all the greatest companies were created, car logos had a bit more passion and a dash more spontaneous stuff around them. That said, you have to watch this video to learn the true origin of the Alfa Romeo snake, the BMW “propeller-like” logo, or even the Ferrari horse. Interestingly enough, one of the most prominent car logos is actually sourced from a Zodiac sign.
And yes, the Mercedes! You probably won’t believe how German and how perfect this logo is. Also, it goes to show that Mercedes really is the godfather, father and everything important in the car world.
