Lamborghini is an Italian brand of cars and water vehicles. The history of this brand began in 1963, when the Italian car manufacturer founded the company Automobili Ferruccio Lamborghini S.A. The name for the company comes from the surname of Ferruccio Lamborghini.

Meaning and History

Lamborghini Logo history

The bull is much more than just a symbol of strength or sportsmanship. There is an astrological motif: Ferruccio Lamborghini was born on April 28, 1916, so his zodiac sign is Taurus. The Italian car manufacturer was passionate about the world of bullfighting, especially since he visited Eduardo Miura’s cattle ranch in Seville in 1962.

1952 – 1963

The first Lamborghini logo appeared in 1952 and lasted 10 years. It was a triangle, which was divided into 3 parts inside. In each part, 3 letters F-L-C were located clockwise. The emblem was slightly changed in color until it received the final version — a golden fighting bull on a black background.

Afterwards, all logos were connected with the image of bull. The founder of the brand was a Taurus by horoscope and a big fan of bullfighting. The businessman believed that the image of the zodiac symbol would bring him good luck, and also demonstrate the power of the brand’s sports cars. In addition, the founder of the company was a long-time fan of bullfighting. These two facts formed the basis of the brand’s logo.

1961 – 1963

In 1961 the logo was redesigned, gaining more brutality and stability. The three small triangles were now colored in plain black, while the letters got thicker and were set in white. Another thing about the logo is the wide gray outline of each small segment and the main shape.

1963 – 1972

This logo was used during the period when the company was owned by Chrysler. This led to minor changes. The logo was in black and white, and as an addition, another company name appeared, but this time under the logo.

1998 – 2024

This logo has the shape of a smoothed triangle with the image of a bull and a simple color scheme. The combination of classic black (aristocracy, dignity, restraint and, consequently, reliability) and gold has made it possible to emphasize the nobility of the brand. There is a company’s name located in the upper part of the triangle and has a classic design.
