Fast and beautiful go hand-in-hand. Need proof? Check out the Hughes H-1 Racer. Film director Howard Hughes built the plane in 1935 with one goal in mind - to be the fastest land-based plane in the world. The plane was sleek and gleaming, with an unpainted aluminum fuselage and flush rivets. Hughes piloted the plane’s first flight and it promptly broke the record, clocking in at 352.39 mph. The plane now sits at the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum.
