This toy won't break the speed of sound, but it might break your toe if you get in the way of it! Here's a 1930 clockwork tin toy of the land speed record breaking Bluebird, which reached 245.73 mph; automotive peanuts in today's money, but mightily impressive for the early 20th century. This clockwork toy is at auction from Martel Maides Auctions with an estimated value of £1,000-£1,500.
