Hail to the King of Speed !

This plastic toy is based on the Auto Union Rekordwagen Typ B "Lucca" from 1935. It was made under different sizes, colours and numbers by the US toy company Renwal and renamed "Speed King" (Dinky toys UK also made a version but kept the original maker of the car on the box).

How can you not go fast in such a thing ? It's flying even standing still.
