Well, I wasn't too awful worried about actually bringing the concept to the real world, but it's still interesting.

Supercavitation makes it seem like that at some currently undetermined inexact speed, fluid dynamics no longer apply, since no matter what shape you're starting with, a super bubble forms, creating the most dynamic shape available in front of the object.

This has been evidenced in cartoons far and wide - Most notably: Speed Racer, DragonBall Z, and several other Japanese Animations.
