Not only the design, El Tiburon's name itself means sharks of the Spanish language. Interestingly, El Tiburon does not apply a roof or pillar, so the driver must be alert when driving and may also have to wear a helmet.

Fascination was created by Paul M. Lewis. His first attempt at building an automobile was a 1937 Airomobile Experimental Sedan, owned by the Harrah’s Museum.
