This Coca Cola livery dons the distinctive Coca-Cola script, which remains a homage to the very first writing style the name 'Coca-Cola' was ever penned in back in the 1880's. Also represented is the patented glass bottle Coca-Cola has been sold in since 1916. It was decided that the drink needed a bespoke bottle shape so that it was recognisable among the many impersonator companies who sprung up following the success of the drink. Ten companies in America were given the brief to develop a "bottle so distinct that you would recognize it by feel in the dark or lying broken on the ground." The Root Glass company's design, said to be inspired by the elongated shape of a cocoa pod, came out on top and thus, bottled Coca Cola came to be.
