Speed Racer's secret weapon is...a Mk. III GTI?!

Apparently, and I have the video to prove it. In time for the highly anticipated Speed Racer movie that comes out tomorrow (hands up if you're going to see it!), I found this while digging through the thousands of old Volkswagen commercials on YouTube. The Mach 5 was sabotaged so Speed uses a Mark III GTI to finish the race and win! Speed Racer driving a Mk. III? That's nostalgia at its best.

See the video after the jump and don't forget to see Speed Racer, out in theatres tomorrow.

I was a VW salesman when that ad came out, and I was lucky enough to snag the marketing poster that cam along with it. I have it framed in my bedroom right now.

You are one lucky person. I'm a huge Speed Racer fan and obvious a huge Volkswagen enthusiast as well. Putting the two together is like my dream come true.
