Max Schnell and Miguel Camino drive into this week’s Cars 2 character reveal!
Hailing from Germany and Spain respectively, these two racers will compete against Lightning McQueen in the World Grand Prix. We had a chance to preview the entire WGP line-up during our Pixar visit, and I’ve got to say, you’ll love to see everyone in action.
Name/Country: Max Schnell/Germany
Official Description: "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 WGP in the same perfectly calculated manner."
Official Description: "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."
Update: The official description and turntable videos for Max and Miguel are now available! Also, don’t forget to check out today’s round-up (there was a lot to cover!!) featuring three vintage-style Cars 2 posters.
