As Cars 2 will see our favourite high-octane Cars from the 2006 original head around the world for the "World Grand Prix", we have been introduced to several new characters from the several new locales that Cars 2 will visit and today we meet 5 new British Cars 2 characters.
The first character (above) is a London Taxi (I just pray Pixar don't overdo the British gimmick to death, because - as a Brit trust me - it gets annoying) called Chauncy Fares and his one line bio reads "No one knows the sites, streets or shortcuts of London better than the jovial Chauncy Fares, a quintessential London black cab".
Our second new character is called Topper Deckington III and his bio cites him as "a classic British double-decker bus in a vivid shade of red who relishes in his daily Killswitch route through London’s famous bustling Petroldilly Circus".
Thirdly, we have, as you may have guessed, the car version of The Queen, who bio says "With the final stage of the World Grand Prix racing through the historic streets of London, England, the Queen is quietly elated she was invited to preside over the finish line by Sir Miles Axlerod.
Painted in shades of the most royal blues and never without her jeweled crown, the Queen is the definition of decorum and regality, but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t enjoy a bit of first-rate competition".
Next, we have, as his Royal Wedding gets closer, the car version of Prince William, Prince Wheeliam. "Prince Wheeliam of England is an avid racing fan. He can’t believe his luck that the final race of the one-of-a-kind World Grand Prix is happening on the streets of London. Though he must remain impartial when by his grandmother the Queen’s side, he is privately rooting for his fellow Brits Lewis Hamilton and Nigel Gearsley to cross the finish line first".
Finally, we have Sgt. Highgear who "is a member of the regiment assigned to London’s landmark Buckingham Palace. With a recognizable tall bearskin cap atop his scarlet body, he stands guard at his sentry box with pride and conviction".
Surely there can't be that many more Cars 2 characters to come now, but needless to say, these ones look sufficiently cool!
