V Emblems

Filed under:  Miscellaneous

Created to represent the shape of the Vehicular V-type internal combustion engine cylinder block structure, the letter V has seen a variety of incarnations from almost every manufacturer.

It has even been extended to uses in displacement emblems, detailed decorations, as well as becoming part of company identities like Cadillac among others), to representing specific cars. For some reason, this shape (or letter) holds a special place with enthusiasts that is shared world wide.

Nicolaus Otto was the first person to successfully build the type of engine that would later become an automobile engine in 1876. In 1885 Karl Benz used an engine similar to Otto's engine to propel a three-wheeled automobile. In the same year, Benz began producing and selling automobiles.
