PROFESSOR Z (Thomas Kretschmann)
Professor Z, aka “The Professor,” is an internationally wanted weapons designer in a small, sophisticated German package. He is a brilliant, but mad monocle-wearing scientist who is plotting to sabotage the World Grand Prix. Though his true motive is unclear, Professor Z is willing to do whatever it takes to eliminate all obstacles and keep the “project” on schedule.
TOMBER (Michel Michelis)
Tomber is a dubious little French car with an unusual, and very unstable, three-wheeled design that befits the meaning of his name – to fall. By trade he deals car parts from a stall in a Parisian market — though his questionable merchandise sources have led to his reluctant acquaintance with British secret agent Finn McMissile.
The complete character gallery (so far) is below:
Cars 2 characters still waiting to be revealed include: Crabby, Lewis Hamilton, Max Schnell, Miguel Camino, Brent Mustangburger, David Hobbscap, Darrell Cartrip, Jeff Gorvette and The Queen.
