This is agent Leeland Turbo. I have a flash transmission for agent Finn McMissile. Finn, my cover's been compromised. Everything's gone pear-shaped. You won't believe what I've found out here. This is bigger than anything we've ever seen. And no one even knows it exists. Finn, I need backup. But don't call the cavalry, it could blow the operation. And be careful! It's not safe out here!

In international versions of Cars 2, Jeff Gorvette is replaced in World Grand Prix welcome party in Tokyo by a completely different character, voiced by a regionally better known racer than Jeff Gordon. However, they only replace him in the scene where Lightning meets him at the party in Tokyo as well as when that scene appears in Mater's nightmare. They don't replace him in the races or when the racers are shocked at Mater drinking from the water fountain after eating a lot of wasabi. Most of these characters use the same body shape as Max Schnell. These include:
Frosty voiced by Mark Winterbottom Australian release
Fernando Alonso voiced by Fernando Alonso Spanish release
Vitaly Petrov voiced by Vitaly Petrov Russian release
Jan Nilsson voiced by Jan Nilsson Swedish release
Long Ge Chinese (both Mandarin and Cantonese versions, however, not Taiwan) release
Memo Rojas, Jr. voiced by Memo Rojas, Jr. Mexican release
Sebastian Schnell voiced by Sebastian Vettel German release (Also appear in other releases, but voiced by other voice actor, called Max Schnell, and don't appear at this scene)
Carla Veloso voiced by Claudia Leitte Brazilian release (Also appear in other releases, but voiced by other voice actor and don't appear at this scene)
Raoul ÇaRoule some French releases (Also appear in other releases, but don't appear at this scene)
In Ukrainian release both Jeff Gorvett and Lewis Hamilton renamed after their voice actors:
Sheva (Jeff Gorvett) voiced by Andriy Shevchenko
Mochanych (Lewis Hamilton) voiced by Oleksiy Mochanov
However, they still looks like Jeff and Lewis. See more »
I know I'm WAY late on this by over a year. Overall I liked it. Loved a lot of the new characters, especially Finn McMissile and the arrogant Italian car guy (whatever his name was). Liked Raoue Carole as well. I just had two major pet peeves with it: it focused on Mater. Mater already had his own little spin-off of "Mater's Tall Tales" which I love. A movie centered on him just didn't do it for me. Had it been on Lightning (like the first one) or any other character I would have been okay. It may have to do with the fact that I'm no Mater fan. My second beef was Doc Hudson wasn't in it. I know why, I understand wanting to honor Paul Newman (whom I adored), hate to sound callous, but the show goes on. If he ended up with a different voice then so be it. Better yet, he could have been in it for a few seconds, and just not say anything at all. Fillmore's voice actor passed and he was still in it so to me there was no excuse not to have Doc in it. My two cents, of course.
