Cars 2 Exotic Cars

By

Pixar's Cars 2 (2011) has more than 1000 new characters -- which is far to many for a mere human to keep track of. Luckily for exotic car buffs, this second Cars picture is set in Europe, so there's a handful of characters based on real-life exotic cars, including at least one familiar face.
