Disney have just sent us another couple of new new characters from latest Pixar movie, Cars 2. For the first time, one of the characters is not actually a car but a plane named Siddeley and I’m pleased to report he’s British!

Siddeley Character Description: Siddeley is a state-of-the-art British twin-engine spy jet. At 176 feet from nose to tail and an impressive 157-foot wingspan, the super sleek silver-bodied Siddeley streaks through international skies at record-breaking mach 1 speeds. Outfitted with all the latest in high-tech spy equipment, including cloaking technology, defensive weaponry and afterburners, Siddeley is Finn’s steadfast partner-in-fighting-crime around the globe.

Siddeley is voiced by Jason Isaacs and as is mentioned in the description above, he is the partner-in-crime to Finn McMissile who is voiced by Michael Caine.




Rod ‘Torque’ Redline

Rod ‘Torque’ Redline Description: Rod “Torque” Redline is considered by many as the greatest American spy in the world. Recruited after the Cold War for both his brains and brawn, Torque is a tough-as-nails Detroit muscle car with a mastery of disguises.

In his latest deep-cover operation, he obtained vital information about the plot to sabotage the World Grand Prix. So Rod plans a rendezvous with his British counterparts to share his discoveries at the World Grand Prix welcome reception in Tokyo, Japan. But with the bad guys hot on his tailpipe, Rod is forced to ditch the intel early and with the first party guest he sees — a rusty American tow truck named Mater.
