Martin Markeli is an artist that builds a lot of customized slotcar tracks. Some of his tracks are pretty intricate, which explains their up to â‚¬10,000 (~$14,800) pricetag. I know I want one, but I'll probably just work on building my own for way, way cheaper. Mine is going to have Ninja Turtles and Barbie dolls standing around watching the race. I may even dress them up provocatively if I'm in the mood. Make sure to check out the extra pictures after the jump, along with the videos. But be warned -- the 3rd video is NSFW because Martin spliced pictures of naked women into it. Proving beyond a reasonable doubt that he's 10 year old.
And that the video won't last long on Youtube.
For the pictures and videos, follow me over the rainbow.
