The unfair advantage

Have you noticed those little windows in the sides of the Team Penske cars this year? Dr Indy has discovered what he believes is the inspiration for the latest Penske design.

During the Kansas race, Jack Arute showed how the Penske cars had special windows in the tub so that the drivers could see better. After looking at cars for the past week, I noticed one car model that had this same design. The Toyota Prius.


In related news, unconfirmed reports speculate a certain AGR car will be utilizing the flower vase from the latest version of the Volkswagen Beetle.

    The post is mine but the content is not. As I noted, all of the credit should go to the Dr Indy blog for this one.

    The Toyota Prius? How about the Honda Civic, which has the exact same design.
