Ferrari wins title of most iconic badge

Ferrari Badge

Ferrari’s prancing horse has been voted the most iconic car badge in the world in a poll commissioned by a group in the UK. Luxury British sports car brand, Aston Martin took the second spot and Lamborghini’s raging bull charged into third.

It’s unsurprising considering Ferrari’s unbroken presence in Formula One since 1950 and long history of producing some of the greatest supercars ever. In fact, nearly half (48%) of all the 5,235 voters declared Ferrari’s prancing horse (Cavallino Rampante) the most iconic performance car badge in the world.

As evidence of the persuasiveness of Italian engineering and style, Ferrari wasn’t the only Italian brand in the top three. Lamborghini’s famous bull- from the star sign of founder, Ferruccio Lamborghini was also popular among voters, securing 8% of the poll.

But it was Aston Martin that got stuck in there with its winged badge winning 25% of the vote to take second place.

Fourth, fifth and sixth place were taken by Bugatti, Porsche and Maserati respectively.

The poll was devised by the MPH Prestige and Performance Motor Show to highlight the array of high performance vehicles on display at the annual event, which takes place in London this November.
