According to your criteria, does this has a mouth? With no further paintwork?

While everytime we think about vehicles with shark mouths (our just mouths), we always think of:
- P-40 Warhawk
- A-10 Thunderbolt II
- some sportscar
- odd submarine
- M4 Shermans (from the Korean War)

But what nobody think (mostly) is for exemple:
- B-29 Superfortress
- any japanese aircraft
- a rally car
- a destroyer (or even a battleship!)
- or even unbuilt vehicles (imagine a Maus tank!!)

This could be done as a rally car I'm sure:

Idea - What if the 112th RAF Squadron (the one that introduced the "Shark Mouth" to the Allies in WW2) was disbanded in the 1960's - imagine Lightnings, Phantoms (or Jaguars), Eurofighters and F-35 Lightnings all with the mouth

I can help your imagination a bit:

As for the Eurofighter Typhoon, I think the RAF WWII Hawker Typhoon style shark mouth lends itself well to being applied to the intake of the modern day version.  Be cool to see.
