First look at the new character in Cars 2

I don’t think Disney and Pixar have really started with the hardcore promoting of the upcoming sequel CARS 2, but revealing a new character is a start. Below you can see a first photo of Raoul ÇaRoule, also known as the “World’s Greatest Rally Car”. He hails from Alsace, France and is described as:
A restless soul, Raoul joined the famous ‘Cirque du Voiture’ French circus where he learned Gymkhana– a graceful, drift-filled motorsport that taught him pinpoint timing and an unparalleled ability to navigate tricky courses with ease. He’s the first car to ever win nine consecutive rallies. Raoul is confident he can use his rally experience to pull ahead of his fellow World Grand Prix racers during the three courses’ touchy dirt sections, especially with his fans in the stands waving banners that read: “ÇaRoule Ca-Rules!”
To me this means that this car is going to be pulling some serious stunts that will make the audience go “Hmmm”. Also, I say he starts off enemies with Lightning McQueen and then becomes friends, because that’s the kind of thing Disney does in kids films.
