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

Combining the suggestions by Carlos and Moritz?
You better stock up on water, canned goods off the shelves
And loot some for the old folks who can't loot for themselves
The doorbell's ringing, could be the elves
But it's probably the werewolf, it's quarter to twelve
And when it's midnight, ... the wolf bites

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!!)

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.
