Founded: January 21, 1863
Opel is one of the world’s top car brands, and it made a bang before WWII. Over the company’s history, which started in 1862, the company has changed lots of logos. The present-day logo (2008) is a circle crossed with a horizontal lightning. The company name is embedded in the top part of the circle. This version lives up to modern design standards. Colors include various hues of silver and black.
