Speed Racer (2008 film)
In the Speed Racer film, the Mach 6 is a state-of-the-art T-180 racing car driven by Speed Racer in the World Racing League. After the "accident" during the Fuji Helexicon race, Speed, Pops, Sparky and family are left to build a new one from scratch to race in the WRL Grand Prix. The car used in the film was designed to look like an Indy car or Formula 1 racer.
Specs This car features auto-jacks like in all T-180 racers, but it has case-hardened dampeners for extra power, which means much higher jumps. It is also powered by a single-forge Bernoulli Convergenator, which is claimed by Pops to be superior to the GRX's inter-positive transponder ("Transponder schmonder," he said, "You want real kick, you go Bernoulli.") This claim was proven when Speed ran a patch through the starter to the Convergenator, shifts the Mach 6 to fifth gear, and jump-starts it, making for an extraordinary burst of speed. The car also features a custom-designed suspension system whose components are derived from biological sources for a degree of flexibility not seen in factory-built wheels. The Mach 6's chassis is a hand-welded nitronium cage with octovalve fasteners, along with a body shell reinforced with submolecular metallitizers.
This model of the Mach 6 is also featured in the videogame tie-in.
Speed Racer: The Next Generation
Unlike the Mach 6 used in the Speed Racer film, Speed Jr.'s Mach 6 is a coupe design with a front-mounted engine. In contrast, the T-180 homologated Mach 6's design can be more likened to a single seater or prototype racer. It is also capable of seating 3 people. The car itself is essentially an updated version of the Mach 5, and is equipped with upgraded versions of its predecessor's gadgets. These include laser saws/cutting blades, a homing bird and auto jacks.
The Mach 6 in this series runs on a gasless engine and is also capable of traveling through time and to other universes with the hourglass part.
