Limited Edition of 20
Initially designed in 2009, the Aluminum Speedster was a collaborative desktop accessory we made in conjunction with Griot’s Garage. As we fulfilled the initial production run for Griot’s Garage, we also released our own line of the Speedster. The Speedsters sold slowly, and when time came for us to look at making a second batch Griot’s Garage was no longer interested in the Speedster, and we still had quite a few of our own on hand. Throughout 2013 and 2014, we sold through the majority of our stock and had shifted into the pen making business with great success. In 2015, we made the difficult decision to discontinue the OG Speedster design. BUT it was resurrected in 2019 when Josh began tweaking the size and Bill redesigned the wheel fittings. Today, we present the Speedster V2, our updated version of this desktop accessory that will largely be sold in small batches with color combinations curated for each release and corresponding lasercode etched on the body to distinguish each batch.
The Meteor Grey Speedster V2 is the first serialized, limited edition of our updated design. What changed, you ask? The biggest change is the overall size of the Speedster V2 itself. The initial Speedster was nearly 7 inches long from wheel-to-wheel (6″ body length) and weighed 1.85 pounds. The Speedster V2 is 4.65 inches from wheel-to-wheel (4.25″ body length) and weighs 0.65 pounds. The wheel system for the Cerakote and custom-painted versions features thread-in wheels to ensure the paint does not wear around the wheel areas, unfortunately, that means these cars DO NOT roll. The body of the Speedster V2 is milled from 6061-T aluminum, in a multi-step process before being polished and anodized in bright blue. The wheels are machined on our lathes from 6061-T aluminum, after which time we’ve cleaned and deburred them. The Meteor Grey Speedster V2 features the same Meteor Grey Cerakote as several of our pen models, expertly applied in a uniform coat over the body of the car. We’ve anodized the wheels for this release in a gloss black, giving this Speedster an amazing look which we’ve not done in the past. Finally, we’ve added the K Shield on the bottom of the Speedster body and each Speedster is serialized out of 20. Ships in bubble wrap, in a small box.
