Vauxhall's new logo has something missing

British car manufacturer Vauxhall has quietly unveiled a new logo, in the first update to its brand identity since 2008. The new logo, which now appears on Vauxhall's website and social media pages, is yet another example of a car company eschewing 3D in favour of flat design. 

In terms of shape, Vauxhall hasn't looked much further than its 2008 symbol for logo design inspiration. But the shiny metallic texture is now gone, as is the word Vauxhall at the top of the outer ring. The company's mythical griffin creature has also lost its wing (and doesn't look too happy about it). This new logo was first spotted on Twitter (below), with Vauxhall itself yet to officially announce the update.
