I am a huge fan of the Cars (and Planes) franchise. When I heard they were coming out with yet another short, I knew we would be in for some fun. Add in some toys, and we have magic. This is the first of the cars, of course Lightning McQueen. He has been outfitted with off-road gear in order to race the other off-road vehicles in an epic race around Radiator Springs.
The vehicle is a classic Lightning in the style of the ending of the first movie. I think pretty much where all of the Mater’s Tall Tales take place as well.
He has a great addition of wheels with large travel to accommodate the off-road terrain. He gets a bit of extras on top as well, including a roof rack with a spare wheel as well as lights.
This is probably the dirtiest toy review to date, but it didn’t seem right to take a look at an off-road vehicle and have it clean and shiny. I have plenty of those. This one had to be different.
