The Mach 5

They actually made an official Hotwheels Mach 5 back when the Speed Racer live action film came out. I own it and it's very similar to this. It's lacking the undercarriage detail, rear view mirrors, and opening doors, too. Only the bottom is made of metal an the rest is plastic. Hotwheels just aren't what they used to be, it seems... A neat feature though, is that there's pegs at the bottom to attach included weaponry.

Hot Wheels have become a mixed bag as of the past five years or so; some cars get more attention than others, it seems. Some will have copious amounts of paint and decals and clear parts while other won't even get painted taillights. I guess, in some ways, that's to keep Hot Wheels under a dollar; people tend to lose their minds when Hot Wheels are anything more than 97¢

I like mach 5 a lot, but I think the asurada series from cyber formula are the more powerful ones

This a million times. Especially since pretty much all of the cars from Cyber Formula are basically the super robot equivalent of cars.
