Live Your Speed Racer Fantasy

Before we learned to covet grown-up automobiles like Mercedes and BMWs, there were The General Lee, The Batmobile and Speed Racer’s Mach 5. Now Speed Racer Autoworks LLC. is giving you the ultimate opportunity to indulge your inner child with your very own 385-horsepower, Corvette platform Mach 5 Signature Series racecar.

Starting at $72,500 and going as high as $125,000, the Mach 5 is not cheap. However, you can feel good in knowing that 20% of the net profits from each sale are donated to the Child Safety Network. They’ll also be raffling one off at www.speedracer.la at a later date.

The Real Mach 5 was created by Ward Leber and designed by Mark Towle. Speed Racer Autoworks plans to produce only 100 cars and has already been flooded with bids. Photos, specs and order forms can be found on the website.
