He also is one of the lemons attempting to round up Mater so that the bomb would explode, killing both Mater and Lightning. Near the end of the film, Alexander is arrested in London with his fellow Lemons. Crabby the Boat is a fishing vessel that is based on the F/V Northwestern, a boat captained by Hansen and featured in the American reality TV series Deadliest Catch. He is seen in the beginning of the film with Finn McMissile aboard him. Finn has paid Crabby to bring him to a certain location in the ocean so he can look for a car, a request that greatly puzzles Crabby.
Of course, this is just a small collection of the characters from the Cars franchise. If you have a favorite character and know what vehicle they are based on, feel free to tell us all about them in the comments below. Although Sally might have started as Lightning McQueen’s defense attorney, over time the two eventually became a couple. If Sally’s last name doesn’t make it obvious, she is based on a 996-series Porsche 911 Carrera. When questioned what a Porsche is doing in a quaint little town like Radiator Springs, Sally explains that it is the rich history of the Radiator Springs that has convinced her to call it home. The star of the Cars franchise, Lightning McQueenis undeniably its most recognizable character.
Many cars think that APB stands for “All Points Bulletin,” but in this case, APB stands for “Always Pumping the Brakes” in the demolition derby. David Hobbscap, a British racing green 1963 Jaguar Coombs Lightweight E-Type, is a former champion from 24 Heures du Mans turned television sportscaster. His character is based on the real life former British racing driver and current NBC Sports commentator David Hobbs, who provides the character’s voice. Jacques Villeneuve voices the character in the French and Quebec versions of Cars 2.
Would you like to draw the enigmatic Lightning McQueen? This easy, step-by-step Disney character drawing tutorial is here to show you how.

Lightning McQueen’s pit crew are generic forklifts who only appear at the start of the film, never to be acknowledged again. They quit after McQueen said that he is a one-man show. One of them, presumably the acting crew chief is voiced by Mike Nelson. After the official crew chief had decided to quit, he is referred to by McQueen as “Chuck”, and retorts angrily afterwards, “And my name is not Chuck!”. They appear in the film to show McQueen’s selfishness and inability to work with others. McQueen had a crew chief before the film, but was not seen in the film, because McQueen fired him (believing he was a one-man show, which later came back to haunt him for his return).
A tire virtuoso and owner of Luigi’s Casa Della Tires, he and his sidekick Guido join Lightning and Mater as members of Team Lightning McQueen for the World Grand Prix. Luigi is also an aficionado and fanatic for all things Italian, and is particularly enchanted with Ferrari race cars. Back to the Future is in my top 5, maybe top two movies of all time and the DeLorean is one of my favorite characters.
