Speed Racer's 'Mach 5' comes to life

Our ultimate childhood fantasy comes true

Warner Bros.

We extend our thanks in advance for your indulgence of our trip down memory lane this morning. Honest, we've tried to shake this nostalgia bug, but it keeps coming back--and this time we're not going to fight it, and you'll see why.

The Speed Racer car is real. That's right. The "Mach 5" has been brought to life in full glory from the '60s animation version (at least the body, anyway) for the Warner Bros. movie scheduled for release next year, according to Gizmodo. And thank goodness for that, because it's probably the only thing that's remained faithful to the seminal anime show. Christina Ricci as Trixie? Matthew Fox as Racer X? Please. We'll stick with the original series on DVD.
