- "By the way, have y'all met each other? Queen, McQueen. McQueen, Queen!"
- —Mater introducing The Queen to Lightning.
The Queen is a character in Cars 2.
With the final stage of the World Grand Prix racing through the historic streets of London, England, the Queen is quietly elated that she was invited to preside over the finish line by Sir Miles Axlerod. Painted in shades of the most royal blues and never without her jeweled crown, the Queen is the definition of decorum and regality, but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t enjoy a bit of first-rate competition!
In the movie, she appears at the London race, waving the starting flag with her antenna. But in the middle of the race, everyone watches in confusion as Lightning McQueen is chasing a backward-driving Mater.
Later on, she wonders aloud who was winning the race. At that moment, Lightning McQueen arrives at the finish line with Mater, who had used his rockets and parachute to get to Buckingham palace. As her bodyguards get defensive, the Queen enthusiastically took note of Lightning. Mater then announced to everyone that mastermind of the lemons was sabotaging the race and he knew who it was. But when he took a moment to respectfully bow to the Queen, everyone sees the bomb on Mater and panic. Finn McMissile intervenes before they could shoot, stating that they can't disarm the bomb. Mater then accused Miles Axlerod, creator of Allinol and the World Grand Prix, as a criminal mastermind. He went on with the theory that Axlerod only created Allinol as an explosive fuel to derail the world's inclination towards alternative fuels back to oil, which he would profit off from the largest untapped oil field. As Axlerod denied his accusations, Prince Wheeliam pleaded with his grandmother that the situation was going nowhere and they'd best get to safetly. However, she wanted to stick around and see where the tow truck was going with this, until it was 15 seconds before the bomb explodes. Thankfully, Axlerod disarms the bomb at the last second, confirming Mater's accusations.
Subsequently, the Queen knights Mater in recognition of his bravery. Mater also introduces her to Lightning McQueen and Finn McMissile.
Queen later requested Mater's involvement in another of Finn's missions, but the tow truck politely declined, preferring to stay home in Radiator Springs.
