Today I spotted a car with a hood badge I didn't recognize (actually it was on the grille but grille badge sounds wrong).

The badge was a broad ellipse with a T inside it, and a diagonal slash cutting across the left arm of the T.

This is my attempt to draw it from memory. Google image search wasn't able to recognize it from this.

Unknown hood badge

The car was black and looked quite modern. It was possibly a largish hatchback with sleek looking lines. Maybe a large coupe or a midsize sedan with an unusally smooth transition between the cabin and trunk. I didn't get a good look at the back end. Beyond that nothing really stood out about it other than the hood badge.

I saw it on the street in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada.

    Sorry, I know this isn't exactly on topic, but it seemed the best SE site for the question. – smithkm Oct 9 '15 at 8:20
  • Looks very much like the Talbot badge. But then that wouldn't be a modern car. Talbot was swallowed by Chrysler in the 1980s. – Chenmunka Oct 9 '15 at 9:25

The only thing I was able to come up with is this Daewoo badge:

It is the closest thing I could find which comes close to your description.


What about Ifiniti (Nissan)? It's not really a T though...

Doesn't ring any bells, so I agree with your comment that its probably a tuning badge. Alternatively, did you see an Opel or Hyundai badge in passing and see these slightly differently?

Hyundai: Hyundai badge

Opel: Opel badge
