New to the Game
Fletcher is a polite British car, who "hopped across the pond" to Radiator Springs alongside his colleague Gerald. He speaks with a British accent. He appears to be a 1954 Jaguar XK120SE.
Gerald is Fletcher's colleague. He seems to be shy because he hardly ever speaks and sometimes hides behind Fletcher. He appears to be a fictional combination of a 1975 Porsche 911 Turbo and a Jaguar XK-E.
El Guapo is a cocky Spanish car, who drove to Radiator Springs alongside his friend Papo. He thinks that his various gold areas such as his rims will help him win races. He also speaks with a Spanish accent. His basis is currently unknown, his license plate simpily reads "GUAPO".
Papo is El Guapo's friend. He never speaks in cutscenes but seems to be cocky like his friend. He can only speak spanish. He appears to be a 1947 Chevrolet Coupe.
Tommy Joe is Mater's cousin. He is one of the generic demolition derby cars who race at the Rustbucket. His number is 83. His paint job could ressemble an American Flag with no blue or stars.
One can often find Buford with his cousins Mater, Judd and Cletus. His favorite pastime is to try to find wheel covers to add to his collection, which already has over a hundred. But he also loves to spend quality time with his cousin at the lake. He sips cold engine oil, casts his fishing line in the blue water and throws a well-deserved nap. Although he never catches anything, his happiness is complete. Although he is a video game-only character, he had a diecast release, where he was numbered 7 Instead of 20.
One night, Mater saw Cletus honking his horn to the Tractors and waking them with a startle. He found it so funny that he decided to accompany him next time. After the departure of his cousin, he wanted to wake up one last tractor and approached his prey by stealth, until noticing that the tractor in question was none other than Frank! Since then, nothing and no one will force more to play this game. He also had a die-cast release.
Lewis is one of Mater's cousins, who races in the Rustbucket Racing Series. His number is 81, he has a lot of dents from being in the Demolition Derby, he seems to be a bit childish, and doesn't have very good English.
Like his cousin Mater, Judd has a very special talent. In particular, he is able to "ski", that is to say to ride on two wheels side. One night he and Mater play tractor tipping as it was fun to them, but when Frank was involved, they got caught in a barn and a grain silo. Jud has managed to escape by "skiing" between the two buildings. Jud and Mater then spun, but they promised to return as soon as possible. He also had a diecast release, in which his name was spelled "Jud".
Zeke is Mater's Cousin, who races in the Rustbucket Racing Series at Ornament Valley. He was later jealous of Mater. He seems to be less intelligent than the other cousins.
Vince is one of the four cars from the town "Queens", who drove to Radiator Springs alongside his friends Barry, Sonny, and Lenny. He appears to be a 1971 Pontiac Firebird. He usually is confident and arrogant, but will usually act timid when on live TV.
Sonny is one of the four cars from the town "Queens", who drove to Radiator Springs alongside his friends: Vince, Barry and Lenny. He speaks only in Cars Mater-National. Sonny is a 1971 Plymouth GTX 440+6, he is extremely mean, as he hits his friend Barry's hood without a reason. He is a very unique character whose 3D model usually differs in every version. He also has an unusual spoiler where the folds face up instead of down.
Barry is one of the four cars from the town "Queens", who drove to Radiator Springs alongside his friends: Vince, Sonny and Lenny. He appears to be a 1970 Plymouth Road Runner. Barry takes care of his hood and doesn't like it if someone hits it. He also is often hit by Sonny. He is rather spineless and dumb.
Lenny is one of the four cars from the town "Queens", who drove to Radiator Springs alongside his friends: Vince, Barry and Sonny. He never speaks in cut scenes and, unlike his friends, races only once. Lenny is a 1969 Chevrolet Camaro. He can only say "Good" and "Not Good".
