Speed Racer Photographed on Roosevelt Island ?

OK, so the below photo is not of the famed #5 car from Speed Racer but the thought of this 1968 Bizzarrini P358 being on Roosevelt Island is enough to get any car enthusiast’s engine running. Yes, that is the Roosevelt Island Lighthouse and the familiar Z Bricks that any island resident knows by site anywhere.

The Bizzarrini was photographed about a week or so by David Traver Adolphus for an upcoming spread planned for this July in Sports and Exotic Cars. You can link to additional photos from the photo shoot now on the Hemmings Auto Blogs. I can't wait to see the full article and photo spread.

  1. The Wachowski bros certainly put a lot of effort into making Speed Racer... the movie overall looked and felt like a cross between anime, a kaleidoscope, that Flintstones movie, a video game and the Dukes of Hazard
