Flo is a character in the 2006 Disney/Pixar animated film, Cars and its 2011 sequel, Cars 2. She is a custom one of a kind 1950s Motorama show car with a small block V-8 engine. She is voiced by Jenifer Lewis.
"Flo first arrived in Radiator Springs as a touring Motorama girl. She was headed west with a transport of models when her chaperone blew her transmission just outside of town. Flo and the other Motorama girls spent an unforgettable weekend in Radiator Springs; they received new tires from Luigi, souvenirs from Lizzie, and a new paint job from Ramone. But when it came time to paint Flo, Ramone threw down his airbrush. Not because he was too good to paint her, but because she was too good to paint. The next day when the girls left, Flo stayed. She and Ramone have been together ever since."
Flo runs the local diner, Flo's V8 Cafe, the only traditional gas station for miles around, where she still serves the finest fuel in fifty states.
Flo returns in Cars 2. Her role isn't that big though. She greets Lightning McQueen when he comes back to Radiator Springs. She also sees him off at the airport when he leaves. When Lightning McQueen calls her and the rest of the Radiator Springs citizens she comes to London. She also helps fights the lemons by hurting Vladimir Trunkov's eyes due to her bright smile. At the end, she and Sally admire Francesco Bernoulli's open wheels.
