Europe was treated to a major solar eclipse early Friday morning and, as always, car manufacturers saw a marketing opportunity through this rare occurrence. Faroe Islands and Svalbard (Norway) experienced the total blackout as the Moon blocked the Sun from the Earth.

Other parts of Europe, northern and eastern Asia, and northern and western Africa witnessed a partial solar eclipse, resulting in the diamond ring efect. We have compiled the best solar eclipse themed car photos for you here.

Alfa Romeo
Probably the best one so far, it properly matched their red logo and the “blood” moon.

Another great looking photo with the Ghibli taking centre stage, probably because it’s curently their best-selling model.

This one was quite funny because it looked like a Christmas greeting card. No pun intended, love you Renault!
