Meet the Mach 5 - the crazy cartoon racing car from the Street Racer cartoon series. Except this is no cartoon. US-based car customiser Mark Towle handbuilt the car for owner Len Mosco staying faithful to the drawings of the 1960s animated series and the original Japanese manga comics that spawned it.

It’s a fantasy car made metal and yes, you can drive it on the road - as long as the rotating circular saw blades are retracted.
