Despite its size, a great white shark can hit speeds of 35 mph. Industrial Product Designer Mehmet Doruk Erdem used that as inspiration when crafting this BMW Titan Concept. With the goal of breaking the land speed record for motorcycles (376 mph), the designer turned to the hydrodynamics of a shark to craft this wild ride. The similarities are obvious. You have a large rear wheel in place of a tail. You have sharp side pieces where fins would be. You even have intakes where a shark would have gills, and the closed front helps send air right to them. Unlike Jaws, however, this thing is packed with a turbo-powered engine to make quick work of the Salt Flats.
