#6. The Mach 5
In the animated television show Speed Racer, the main character (who is named Speed Racer) says this about the iconic car, “The Mach 5 is the most complex and ingenious car ever built; a tribute to my father’s imagination, genius, and technical skills!” The Supercharged Mach 5 is an automotive machine incomparable to any other on the racing circuit. Its unique aerodynamic design, coupled with its special devices, makes this car the leader of a pack of little more than second-rate contenders. As stated earlier, the Mach 5 was built by Speed racer’s father after the death of his older son left him feeling guilty. Pops (as he is affectionately called,) borrowed money from the bank to fund the Mach 5 and with repayment of the loan rapidly approaching, he realizes his only option is to sell the car. Before Pops could say, “Craig’s List,” Speed declared that he could race the Mach 5 and that he would win enough money to pay back the bank. And so began Speed Racer’s quest to become the best racer there is, and as long as he is behind the wheel of the incredibly fast Mach 5, that’s exactly what will happen.
