Inspiration is everywhere. It could come when you are listening a song , it could come as you’re staring at the sky. When it comes to designing a sports car, main focus is to create a vehicle that depicts speed and is aerodynamically sound. As far as those characteristics are concerned, few things can compete with the designs of fighter jets and airplanes. Car designers often cite fighter jets and planes as the models for their vehicles. Here are 10 examples.
