Speed Racer at Detroit car show
The car from the Wachowski Brother's coming film Speed Racer, the Mach 5, has been seen at the Detroit Car Show, and there are tons of pictures online.
Unlike the previous nice studio shot of the car, the others show a lot more, even of the cockpit itself, and the car looks pretty cool.
The shots of the Speed Racer car also offer pretty damn big pictures and reveal a little of the cockpit...well, there's not much in there but at least we get the steering wheel.
For those of you who don't remember the plot you can read the complete outline right here. Basically it's a straight live-action copy of the cartoon series. The story is about a young racer and his family, competing in a corporate controlled, and corrupted, race circuit. After his brother dies he takes up the challenge to take the family team to the podium, but he has to fight his competitors and the corporations who want him out. It looks like it's going to be bright, family friendly, and manga come to life.
You can see the pictures of the Mach 5 racer over at Autoblog. That must be one difficult car to keep clean!
