Finally, the crossover market between car-fetishists, anime fans and people who weren't sleeping by the end of The Matrix Revolutions will be served by Warner Bros bringing the Wachowski Brothers' movie version of Speed Racer's Mach-5 supercar to Detroit's North American International Auto Show at the end of the month. For three days - January 19th through 21st - fans can stare, probably from a distance, at a three-dimensional recreation of a car that probably starred in many childhood dreams without having to think about Christina Ricci or Emile Hirsch. And isn't that what everyone would want?
