The automotive market is a highly competitive one. The logos of automobile brands form the attitude to their cars. Therefore, the designers pay special attention to the creation of logos. This rating presents the logos of mass production cars.

20. Koenigsegg

Koenigsegg logo

The list of top-20 car logos starts with Koenigsegg. A hybrid car with increased potential, one gasoline and three electric engines, Koenigsegg Regera was converted from experimental model into mass production car. This is why the logo claimed its position in our rating. The price of Koenigsegg Regera is $1.9.

19. Pagani

Pagani Logo

The Pagani logo is not well familiar to a wide audience. Horizontally positioned oval studded with rivets and capped with a blue “sapphire” on the left side of the logo gained fame in 2017, when Pagani Huayra BC was sold for 2.8 million dollars. Huayra’s engine power is 799.4 horsepower; the acceleration to 100 kilometers per hour is claimed at 2.7 seconds.

18. Pininfarina

Pininfarina logo

The Pininfarina logo has a crown on the top, emphasizing uneasy origin of its creators and its target group. The price of the brand’s cars makes them available only the chosen ones. The design of Pininfarina Sergio model, which costs $3 million, implies the absence of a windshield. The car can reach the speed of 320 kilometers per hour, but the real secret is in its aerodynamics. All the airflow passes over the top of the car.

17. Bugatti

Bugatti logo

The Bugatti logo has the unofficial name “brooch”. Indeed, “the pearls” decorate the logo’s oval contour and the center presents us the best jewel – the company’s name. Bugatti Chiron’s maximum speed is 420 kilometers per hour. The car is capable of accelerating to 300 kilometers in 13.6 seconds, and it takes 2,5 seconds to reach 100km/h. However, extreme speeds lead to enormous gas consumption – the tank will become empty in 9 minutes at maximum loads. The price of the record-holder-car is 2.6 million dollars.

16. Ferrari

Ferrari Logo

The raging black horse in the center of the Ferrari’s logo is familiar even to those, far from the automotive world.

The car, which again reminded about the expensiveness of this logo – Lamborghini Veneno Roadster – was sold to the new owner for $3.3 million.

13. Lykan

Lykan logo

The Lykan logo got its place in the rating because of the enormous price of its latest model. Lykan HyperSport was sold for 3.4 astonishing million dollars.

Chevrolet logo

The golden cross with diagonally cut side beams of the Chevrolet logo takes the 12th position of our rating. The brand value is estimated at 11.5 billion dollars, which is 1.6 billion more than the previous year. The value of the logo increases not because of the gold, which the logo has in abundance, but because of the innovations and outstanding results on the crash tests of its new cars.

The Porsche logo holds 11th position of our rating. Changes in the marketing strategy significantly increased the number of cars sold (by 8 billion dollars), and, as a result, the brand value. A gilded shield with a black horse again pretend to return to the top 10.

BMW logo

The logo, which occupied the first line in the world ratings during the second half of the twentieth century more often than other logos did. The “chess” combination of white and blue turned from the symbol of the region into the sign of the car’s power – the car capable of moving at a speed close to the speed of an aircraft.

Brand Finance estimates the value of this logo at 37.1 billion dollars, which makes it the second most valuable automobile brand in the world.

2. Rolls-Royce

Rolls-Royce logo

The Rolls-Royce logo occupies leading positions among brands whose target audience is people with super profits.
