Cars 2 Character Design: Professor Z

Every spy movie needs a great villainous mastermind and in Cars 2, his name is Professor Z. His official description notes that he “is an internationally wanted weapons designer in a small, sophisticated German package. He is a brilliant, but mad monocle-wearing scientist who is plotting to sabotage the World Grand Prix. Though his true motive is unclear, Professor Z is willing to do whatever it takes to eliminate all obstacles and keep the “project” on schedule.” Our favorite part of the character is his combover, which is a creative touch to his character design. Read on for a look at some of the intricacies of his design!

We cannot wait to find out what this guy is up to or to see just how dangerous he is. We will know for sure when Cars 2 scoots into theaters on June 24!
