Thanks for the preliminary designs. Automotive is really tough! People tend to base there selection on the packaging and not whats in side.
We need a logo with technological advancement, dynamic, modern, and that is cool. I really like semi abstract look. This will add to modernization, but also some direct meaning.
We like to use of lion, falcon/firebird, warrior angel, or human dynamically moving. The pic of the ark of the covenent is there because the two figures it really shows the power of whats inside. I though we could use something like that cut down. Don;t be afraid to cut or mosaic things out.
I like to see some use of the doppler effect or dragging showing speed.
Let me know if you have any questions. Let's make a great logo and really show credibility, but can be on a race car at the same time.
Keep in mind how it will look on a package also.
