Best Easter eggs in car logos

From hidden people to a light up logo.

W​hen looking at cars, one might not realise the time and effort it takes to name a car, design a badge, and decide incredibly trivial things such as the font of the car's model name. This article is going to focus on the greatest and most thought-out badges on cars today and of the past.

T​he Fiat Punto

K​icking off the list here is the Fiat Punto logo. I'm not a massive fan of the Punto but I can admire the clear thought that went into the badge. This may seem pretty obvious to those who have had a proper look at a Punto badge, but for those who just have a quick glance may not have noticed that the "P" is a driver, they have their hands out and are sitting down. Although one can only assume the badge is the outline of a driver, since it could be somebody sitting down to eat their tea? All in all, this is one of the most brilliantly designed badges on a car of the past.

T​he Dodge Viper

T​his one is rather obvious if you happen to drive behind a Dodge Viper or if you watched Top Gear series 19 episode 2. The Dodge logo on the back lights up. It may seem pointless and futile, but you'd be wrong: the logo is the third brake light. Yes! The Viper is a brake light... It's a gimmick, but it's a brilliant gimmick.

V​olvo

M​any believe the Volvo logo to be the symbol for male, but it isn't quite that. Most Volvo drivers know this feature, but the vast majority of non-Volvo drivers don't know the coolest thing about the Volvo logo: the arrow points to the bonnet release. Now, that is the coolest feature of a car's logo. It's the Roman god Mars’ sword and shield, but the hidden bonnet release is a far more elegant and a brilliant thing... Well it is if you're like me: tired of forgetting where it is and getting your hands dirty when trying to open it.

H​yundai

I​'m not completely sold on this theory, but if it's true, this is a brilliant hidden feature within a logo: the "H" is supposedly a silhouette of a couple of people shacking hands. If this is true, this is a great double meaning to a logo.

Overall, the four hidden features I've shown today are pretty good. Now I'm unable to look at any of these makes/models the same. From a hidden person, to light up logo, to guide to bonnet release, and finally to two people shaking hands. These are just some of the best hidden features in car logos.

  • And Punto stands for 'A Dot' in Italian. So the P has a dot above which normally wouldn't be there.

    • Wow. I never knew that! The detail that Fiat puts into their badges is quite incredible.

    • Italians. I use to own an Alfa 147. The fuel gauge, besides standard markings for fuel, had this little 'Benzina' written on. The coolant had 'Acqua' and the revcounter had 'Giri x 1000'. Wonderful.

    • I’ve only ever been in a Punto once and there’s a logo on the dash. I noticed it looked like a person and when I got out to get a bag from the boot I saw it was the “P” on the logo 😂. I love how practical and logical Volvo are too. The badge is brilliant!

    • Fiat does seem to have a thing for putting badges everywhere in their cars🤣 I noticed that when opened the boot of my mother's Panda just to find another Panda badge🤣

  • Not as cool as the Easter eggs presented in the article but did you know that you could write all the letters of Toyota with its logo?

  • In the reverse of the article, the Volvo diagonal bar was once a practical item as it was what the badge was attached to...
