This Japanese Mitsuoka Orochi design was inspired by whales. (though the name has to do with a mythical dragon or similar)

The E Type is clearly just a rolling phallus. The coupe even brings the berries to the twig party.

My M6 GC has a very bulgy long hood. I cannot post a picture of what it looks like or I'll get banned, but you get the idea.



Edit... here's the M8GC, the replacement for the 6GC, the tip is even girth-ier.

I can’t post a pic without turning this thread into NSFW but the Alfa Romeo Giulia grille is inspired by a woman’s pubic triangle
