Reuters' video coverage of the Speed Racer press conference and Mach 5 unveiling in Germany has been posted on the web. It gives us a better introduction to the real-life version of the iconic hero vehicle, including a nice long look inside the cockpit. Once they're done showing the car, however, the conference devolves into the usual Hollywood pap. "I've never been as excited to be a part of a project...blah, blah, blah." Yeah, yeah, we know. Now, spare us the hugfest and and show us Racer X's Shooting Star, already!
