Star race car Lightning McQueen and his pal Mater head overseas to compete in the World Grand Prix race. But the road to the championship becomes rocky as Mater gets caught up in an intriguing adventure of his own: international espionage.
As of 2012, this is the only Pixar film to not receive an Academy Award nomination.
This is agent Leeland Turbo. I have a flash transmission for agent Finn McMissile. Finn, my cover's been compromised. Everything's gone pear-shaped. You won't believe what I've found out here. This is bigger than anything we've ever seen. And no one...
In the talk-show scene before Sir Miles Alexrod comes on screen, a car which appears to be Lightning McQueen very briefly appears on the WGP graphics. The incorrect car is used, as the "trails" seem to correspond to the car's country, and the trails with Spanish flag colors (red and yellow) have what seems to be Lightning McQueen on them.
In the beginning of the credits, the story of Mater and Lightning's trip around the world is told through pastel-like, mildly animated postcard pictures.
