Ka-Chow! Lighting McQueen at CAM

The Canadian Automotive Museum is excited to have a full scale model of Lightning McQueen from Disney Pixar’s Cars 3, now available on Blu-Ray™. 

The iconic main character from Pixar’s Cars animated film franchise, Lightning McQueen is part athlete, part stock car. McQueen is voiced in the films by actor Owen Wilson and was named after the late Pixar animator Glen McQueen, who passed away in 2002. McQueen’s shape was influenced by sports cars like the Corvette C6 and Ford GT40, as well as sports stars Muhammad Ali, Charles Barkley and Joe Namath.

Lightning McQueen will be on display in the main gallery of the Canadian Automotive Museum through November 2018.
