Peter Fernandez, largely responsible for the American transformation of a moderately successful Japanese cartoon called Mach Go Go Go into a massive hit on these shores, had a full-sized version of Speed Racer’s legendary Mach 5 built a few years back, and now Gotham Garage is offering for the first time ever these Towle built replicas to the public. The cars feature billet wheels custom-made for the car, a driver’s side rollbar, a pushbutton steering wheel and up to 435hp via a Chevy LT1. No word on if the trunk is big enough to hold both Spritle and Chim-Chim.
