The video above is an old version of the trailer for the upcoming Speed Racer movie and at about 34 seconds in, there are a few frames of a desert race. In the newest version of the trailer, wind turbines have been added to the desert as you can see below the fold. Is the Speed Racer movie going green? I wonder what else they might make green? What if the new Mach 5 is a flex-fuel hybrid or maybe even a fully electric race car? We'll have to wait until May 2008 when the movie makes it into theatres to find out.
In related old TV, new show car news; a Knight Rider TV movie will air in February but the new KITT is definitely NOT a hybrid.
