Speed Racer


Helper Bot

The car that Speed's rivals drive in Speed Racer looks meaner and more next-decade than Speed's own disappointing Mach-5 from the Detroit Auto Show. This Japanese race car is decked out with tons of weird-looking pistons and coils, a space-cruisery hood and a rocket-looking rear. An actual popular Japanese racing team, the Autobacs Racing Team Aguri, will race Speed using this car, unveiled at the Tokyo Auto Salon this weekend. More futuristic race car pics below.

It sorta' makes me think of what a car would look like if it was designed by the same person who designed Kaneda's motorcycle from Akira.
