New Cars 2 Characters: Meet Nigel Gearsley and Miles Axelrod!

Cars 2 left its (tire)mark at the 2011 New York Toy Fair with character reveals and Pixar goodness galore.

In attendance (at a special event promoting the film) were the voices of British spies, Finn McMissile and Holley Shiftwell. A life-size replica of Finn (which will tour the US) was also unveiled at the show! Now get ready to meet another set of Britons (although they aren’t spies), Nigel Gearsley and Miles Axelrod!

Official Description: "Nigel Gearsley from Warwickshire, England, is an Aston Martin DB9R racer bearing #9. He got his start racing the Speed Hill Climb—a unique, completely uphill race through the Aston Hill Mountain Area that his family has run for generations. Nigel’s racing career has been anything but an uphill challenge, as he’s won nearly every start in the past few years on the Grand Touring Sports Car circuit, including a string of podiums at Nurburgring and Le Mans. His cool British refinement makes him an imposing presence on the World Grand Prix courses."

Official Description: "Sir Miles Axlerod is a former oil baron who has sold off his fortune, converted himself into an electric vehicle and has devoted his life to finding the renewable, clean-burning energy source of the future—ultimately discovering what he believes is the fuel everyone should be using. Axlerod is also the car behind the World Grand Prix, a three-country race he created that attracts the world’s top athletes—but it’s really an excuse to show off his new wonder-fuel, Allinol."
