The "Mach Five" ("Mach Go" in Japanese[[note]]Or simply, "The Mach"[[/note]], yielding the pun in the original name) had an array of gadgets more at home on Bond's Aston-Martin than on a racing vehicle, like autojacks[[note]]Meant more for maintenance, but frequently used to make the car jump.[[/note]], a spy robot, underwater capabilities and a trunk (which even street-legal sports cars often lack).[[note]]Though at the time a sports car actually did have to have a trunk to compete at [[UsefulNotes/TwentyFourHoursOfLeMans LeMans]].[[/note]]

* CoolCar: Pretty much the whole point of the show.

* CoolCar: Pretty much the whole point of the show. The Mach 5 is not only fast, but it has auto jacks that double as a jumping mechanism, belt tires that allow it to safely drive through any rough terrain as well as sideways, sawblades to cut through heavily-wooded terrain, bullet-proof glass, illumination lights that make high beams look like nothing, the ability to drive underwater like a submarine, complete with periscope, and a homing robot that can take pictures and send taped messages anywhere.



** Racer X's signature car, #9, is quite impressive, but other than being able to hop similar to the Mach 5's auto-jacks, it doesn't appear to have any special features.

However, as of this writing, it's been more than a year since the initial announcement with no updates on it's release. (As of late 2016 the series is available on Hulu.)

Speed Racer (yes, that's his English name; in the Japanese version it's "Go Mifune") is the young driver of the Mach 5, an incredible supercar designed by his father "Pops" Racer (Daisuke Mifune). Speed would race dangerous routes against dangerous people and come out on top with his "girlfriend" Trixie (Michi Shimura) trailing him in a helicopter and his little brother Spritle (Kurio) and his pet chimp Chim-Chim (Sanpei) frequently stowing away in the trunk.

* AdaptationNameChange: As mentioned above, Speed was known as Go Mifune in the Japanese version of the '60s series. However, in the 1997 remake, the Mifune family became the "Hibiki" family, necessitating a change in his surname. His father retained his name of Daisuke, while his mother's name went from being Aya to Misuzu.

** It should be noted however, that while the English version is about Go/Speed himself, the Japanese one was more about the car.

* CutShort: The '90s remake was planned for 52 episodes, but only 34 wound up produced due to the ratings going sour and [[ExecutiveMeddling a change in directors]] during production. The ''Speed Racer X'' English dub by DiC would only air 13 episodes before being pulled due to a lawsuit from Speed Racer Enterprises.*
