Lamborghini
Maserati
Ferrari
Aston Martin

The Prancing Horse is the symbol of Italian sports car manufacturer Ferrari. Originally, the symbol was used by World War I pilot Francesco Baracca on his airplane. Enzo Ferrari met Francesco Baracca’s parents, who told him that their son used to paint a prancing horse on his airplane and suggested that if Ferrari painted the horse on his cars, he would have good luck. Ferrari took their advice and started to use the black Prancing Horse on a yellow background (yellow being one of the colors of the city flag of his native Modena) as the official Ferrari logo.

The correct answer is Ferrari.
