Can any of you car buffs tell what model Mercedes Benz from the bonnet or hood ornament? 





Not enough to tell,  as a long time M-B owner, 1962-2012, I would say that it is a badge from

a 1998 to 2002.  Do a Goggle search for Mercedes Benz. org, they should know the answer.


Hope you are well,

I’ve owned six mercs from 1980s through to 2016, my C class estate (2012 model) had this badge type on the hood (but no star). It appeares also on early E class cars (see image HPTB14) but my later E class models discarded it in favour of the three point standing star only.

Hi Edo,


Mercedes-Benz logo 1926


have a look at this site for the evolution of the logo design:





You seem to have found it, Nigel. Thanks. And thanks to all you car enthusiasts. 


It's a toss up for me — do I know less about flowers or high-end autos? I find them both beautiful and mysterious.

It certainly was present with the exact same background on Vito and Viano Vans of the previous model. Don't know about the current one, the V-class.

1000logos gives the date as 1933-current.
