Cars 2 new trailer and specs of race competitors revealed

Added in: Features


Pixar have released another trailer of their highly awaited animation movie, Cars 2. Along with the trailer, the company has also revealed the specifications and performance timings of the participants for the World Grand Prix, the race around which the story revolves. Lightening McQueen, with his 750 horses and 0-100km/h sprint time of 3.2 seconds has a major advantage over most other competitors who cannot quite match him for horspower, except one. Francesco Bernoulli, also with 750 bhp and a (much) quicker 0-100 acceleration time of 2.5 seconds outclasses the Cars hero in terms of specs. No prizes for guessing then, as to who would be Lightning’s top rival.

The most interesting character for us, however, still remains Finn McMissile, the car equivalent of James Bond.
