Speed Racer Mach 5

Here is the trailer for the upcoming Speed Racer live action movie, directed by the Wachowski brothers. The movie is set for a May 2008 debut. Speed will be played by Emile Hirsch, who played Johnny Truelove in Alpha Dog and Matthew in The Girl Next Door. Speed’s car is called the Mach 5, and it is supposedly powered by a 5,000 horsepower V12 engine that spins up to 30,000rpm. Fictional or not, that is some very crazy numbers there. Watch the trailer after the jump.
