A 18-metre model, based on the ever popular Gundam anime franchise, was erected in Tokyo’s Odaiba last year and created raves around the world. The Gundam was however taken down after two months as it was not built to last.
The Shizuoka Gundam is scheduled to open on July 24. It can move a bit as per the previous one; not sure how long this new Gundam is going to stay though.
490 Ferrari sport cars have set a new Guinness World Record at the Fuji Speedway in Shizuoka, Japan, on May 11, for the largest parade of Ferrari cars.
The Italian cars were required to parade for two miles while keeping the distance between each car for no more than two car-lengths apart to set the record.
The previous record was 385 at the Silverstone circuit, UK, in June 2007.
