Horses and Bulls

LambhorginiFerrariPorscheOh, by the way, yesterday I got curious to know how the logos of some of the fastest cars came up. Read on the content (courtesy burskey) if you too want to know it…

The Lamborghini logo sports the raging bull or Taurus — Ferruccio Lamborghini’s birth sign. Most of the company’s cars have been named after famous fighting bulls (oddly though, most have been Spanish bulls, NOT Italian). It also shows his passion for bullfighting.

The prancing horse or Cavallino Rampante is Ferrari’s adopted logo and is usually with the letters S F (for Scuderia Ferrari), with three stripes of green, white and red (the Italian national colors) at the top. Ferrari has used the cavallino rampante on official company stationery since 1929.

A similar black horse on a yellow shield is the Coat of Arms of the German city of Stuttgart. This horse motif comes from the origins of the city’s name: it comes from Stutengarten, an ancient form of the modern German word Gestüt, which translates into English as stud farm and into Italian as scuderia. And the mention of Stuttgard brings us to our last car logo for this entry – the Porsche.
