First Look: Speed Racer's Rival Race Car Revealed

Everyone knows how much I'm looking forward to The Wachowski Brothers' Speed Racer this upcoming summer, but not everyone is the same way. Despite the differences, another car from the film was revealed this weekend at the Tokyo Auto Salon and it looks incredible. In the film, Speed will actually be racing against this team, called the Autobacs Racing Team Aguri (aka ARTA), and their futuristic car modeled somewhat after ARTA's Super GT 300 car. Some new photos have appeared online for a first look at this futuristic beauty.

The photos come courtesy of Rocket Punch, so send some love their way. Although it's hard to imagine this sweet ride in action just from these photos, this thing does look awesome. I can't wait to see it in action in the movie.

If you haven't already seen it yet, check out the first trailer that debuted for this movie back in December. Speed Racer, written and directed by Larry and Andy Wachowski, arrives in theaters this summer on May 9th.

Wow. I hope Julia Hope doesn't have kids, it would be horrible to be them.

Jesus fucking Christ, Julia. It's a fucking movie. It no longer shocks me when people say that women are usually completely devoid of logic, common sense and consistency.

Believe it or not, all of the cars in the new Speed Racer movie run on a fuel mixture of sunshine and farts. So they are in fact teaching children that there are alternatives to fossil fuels.

Julia Hope: You fail at life.

@Julia Hope: Every repost is repost repost.

I completely agree with you Julia! I also think we should boycott "Gone Baby Gone" because it encourages abducting and murdering children.

Okay guys, PLEASE TONE DOWN ON THE COMMENTS. Yes, we all know she's crazy for saying that, but don't be so offensive on here! I don't want to go through and delete or ban all of you just because you can't control your commenting. Thank you.

Sorry, I will tone down the disrespect accordingly.
