A Mach 5 replica, based on a C4 Chevrolet Corvette, is set to hit the auction block at Mecum Auctions later this month. This unique car is built to mimic the iconic Mach 5 from the popular Japanese animated series, “Speed Racer”. The car is a true tribute to the classic anime and has us feeling all nostalgic.

Mach 5

Speed Racer first aired in Japan in 1967 and became an instant hit.  The show followed the adventures of a young racecar driver named Speed Racer, his family, and his friends as they compete in races around the world.  The Mach 5 was Speed Racer’s car and was equipped with various gadgets and features that helped him win races and overcome obstacles.

This replica Mach 5 is powered by a 5.7L/300 HP V-8 engine with multi-port fuel injection, paired with an automatic transmission. It also features custom wheels with simulated knock-offs, 4-wheel disc brakes with red calipers and drilled rotors, and a simulated rear-facing camera. The interior of the car is upholstered in red leather and features power windows and locks, Moon Eyes gauges, and a Jensen CD player.

The custom body of the Mach 5 replica looks to be done at the highest standards. It has been expertly crafted to mimic the iconic design of the original car, with its sleek white exterior and red detailing. The attention to detail is impressive, with the signature “M” logo on the hood, the red & orange “5” lettering on the sides, and the distinctive front grille and headlights.

This Mach 5 replica is a unique and exciting tribute to one of the most beloved animated series of all time for car enthusiast. It is sure to be a hit with fans of the show, as well as car enthusiasts and collectors. The hammer price is anyone’s guess, but you can follow along via Mecum here.
