Get your favorite Hot Wheels ready for the race of a lifetime! California artist Chris Burden has now built the “Hot Wheels track of epic proportions,” says MAKE magazine in their most recent issue. (Here's Alice writing about it back in November 2010.) Burden's astounding sculpture Metropolis II is a cityscape that allows 1,100 toy cars to blaze down 18 lanes of freeways equipped with endless loops. Chief engineer Zak Cook, Burden and ten assistants built this magnificent track in four years at his Topanga Canyon studio! This is some serious dedication that has produced some excellent results.
