Default Why is this car smiling?

For some reason, I look at Honda/Acura as a smaller manufacturer, so my natural instinct, (Even if it's wrong!) is to root for the underdog.
So I'll be paying attention to the Shank team and their

They're far from being the underdog...it's a factory program in a pro-am class with a pro line up (fake silvers drivers).
By the way really liked the new Acura and the mirrored liveries

Its a fact car manufacturers make the front of the car look like a persons face. Headlights for eyes and grill for mouth.
It makes them seem appealing to the consumer.

Somebody here, a year or so ago, drew faces from the various shapes of the GT cars competing....probably in the WEC. It was funny and very accurate at the same time.
