Description

The Tor-Speedo is an original design from the Torpedoes subset of First Editions. The Torpedo style was a new cartoon style introduced in 2005 and depicts a car in a skinny, Torpedo-like shape with outboard wheels. These unique vehicles should perform well on track sets but the exposed wheels make them more susceptible to bending axles. Re-releases of Torpedoes vehicles have been somewhat limited.

Of note is that Tor-Speedo is 1 of 2 Torpedoes vehicles with a plastic base (Trim TRK is the other). A metal insert inside the body (comprising the exposed engine and cockpit) helps to compensate its mass.
