Go Speed Racer … to the 2008 Detroit Auto Show

Speed Racer

There’s all kinds of celebrity guests at the 2008 North American International Auto Show, including the Mach 5 race car from the forthcoming Speed Racer movie (May 2008). The movie is by Larry and Andy Wachowski (The Matrix) and I have to say that the trailer looks frighteningly fun.

This photo is part of a big set of photos from the 2008 Detroit Auto Show that includes a lot of juicy detail shots concept designs and some interesting vehicles like the Li Shi Guang Ming.

If you want to see the car, go to the NAIAS this weekend. Here’s a bunch of stuff on the 2008 Detroit Auto Show from Absolute Michigan.

    speed Racer’s probably the dumbest movie ever made. What are the Wachowski’s thinking ? They’ve done nothing original since the Matrix, .. that is if that’s their original IP. Starting to look like it’s not since they’ve done nothing different since then. And, their previous movies pre-matrix were cult flops. Why create a gas guzzling race car movie when we’re at War, and gas/oil is central to this energy crisis. I bet they were bought by Auto and Oil Corporations.

    Yeah, they’re just one trick ponies.
