Germany and Spain are well represented in the World Grand Prix, as new Cars 2 characters Max Scnhell and Miguel Camino have just been unveiled. Lightning McQueen really has his work cut out for him if he is going to drive away a winner of the world race, and these new characters are two of the many that are standing in his way. Read on for hi-res images and official descriptions of Schnell and Camino!
Max Schnell started as a humble production sedan from Stuttgart, Germany. An avid amateur racer, Max would practice alone in the back roads of the dense Black Forest—a trek that eventually caught the eye of a racing team owner. Soon Max was on a professional circuit, bearing the #4, and as his horsepower increased, he converted himself to carbon fiber, dropping his weight and getting into prime racing shape. He’s won more races at Motorheimring than any other World Torque Champion League car in history. A naturally brilliant engineer, he used logic and analytics to refine his build, and plans to approach the World Grand Prix in the same perfectly calculated manner.
Spain’s most renowned, admired and captivating car is Pamplona’s Miguel Camino. He first caught his home country’s attention by participating in the infamous Running of the Bulldozers. His flair, style and speed as a toreador in the dozer ring has inspired a generation of young bulldozer fighters, and soon that same speed and verve turned headlights of fans and competitors alike on the Grand Touring Sport racing circuit. Bearing the #5 and the fiery colors of the Spanish flag, Miguel Camino is hoping to race his way into more hearts at the World Grand Prix.
As the film’s release date comes ever closer, we are approaching the end of the new character roll-outs. From here on out, expect a nice amount of Cars 2 posters, commercials, videos, and other promo material.
