Some interesting new answers came up which fit the description, so I've included them below. Anything apart from the ones below is incorrect. Remember, your answer is correct only if you have the correct brand(s).

A - Inspirations for Brand Logos

B - Taurus - Lamborghini. Subaru doesnt really fit. The star cluster Pleiades although is a part of Taurus, you cant really say Taurus inspired the logo.
C - Medusa - Versace
D - Colonel Sanders - KFC
E - Eleanor Thornton - Rolls Royce
F - Château de Crémat - Chanel
G - Peacock - NBC
H - Mountain Lion/Puma - Puma. Given for Mountain Lion OS X.
I - Melusine - Starbucks
J - Plane Propeller - BMW
K - Chi Chi the Giant Panda - WWF
L - Mountain Bluebird - Twitter
M - Adélie penguin - Linux. Given for Penguin Books.
N - Fountain of Neptune - Maserati
O - 31 - Baskin Robbins
P - Winged Victory/Nike of Samothrace - Nike. Given for Honda too, important inspiration for the latter as well.
Q - Kannon Bodhisattva/GuanYin - Canon
R - Ottone Visconti - Alfa Romeo
S - Francesco Baracca - Ferrari
T - Württemberg Coat of arms - Porsche
U - Pegasus - Tristar Pictures
V - Kiwi - McLaren would be the crisp answer, but given for Canterbury Clothing Company or Kiwi Shoe Polish
W - Golden Gate Bridge - Cisco
