Every Car Manufacturers has his own logo and you can easily recognize Car Manufacturers by their Car Logo. In Many case Car logos were designed according to the ideas of companies’ founders, which cannot but appeal to strong adherence to old traditions and company portfolio. There are more than 1250 Car Manufacturers in world, many of them have very similar Car Logos ( Car Emblem ), and there are sometimes accusing for copied part of Logo For Example: A design of black and gold emblem was offered by company founder Ferruccio Lamborghini, and a bull in the center refers to his zodiacal sign – Taurus. The related legend tells that Lamborghini shield was allegedly copied from Ferrari, and the color was changed into black and yellow, to prick the ego of Enzo Ferrari. These two brands were permanently engaged in speechless competition.( I like Lamborghini) Also A tragic story influenced a lot on creation logo for Rolls-Royce. The company’s founders, Sir Charles Stewart Rolls and Henry Royce originally used red letters in the logo, which combines the first letters of their last names. The legend tells that the color changed into black when Sir Henry Royce died in 1933 and black color was implemented to honor his memory. In real, black letters have become a deliberate decision by the two founders – to provide grater prestige and luxury. All these are just examples in car manufacturers industry were Car Logos are designed according to the ideas of companies founders
