Moteurs... Action! Stunt Show Spectacular is a cars performance show at Walt Disney Studios Park premiered on March 16, 2002, and at Disney's Hollywood Studios known as Lights, Motors, Action! Extreme Stunt Show premiered on March 16, 2002 until April 2, 2016.

The show runs for just under 40 minutes and includes pyrotechnics, jet ski chases, and physical stuntwork among the car work. The cars are followed by cameras, and the film shown to the audience on a billboard television screen is both shot during the show and pre-recorded, and some shots are even from the Disneyland Resort Paris version of the show. This is to make the show appear as if it were a real movie shoot. Herbie, the Volkswagen from The Love Bug, makes an appearance in an intermission in the middle of the show. The Herbie sequence was replaced with one inspired by Cars 2 featuring Mater interrupting the video feed to warn the audience of spies in the area and Lightning McQueen being pursued by a group of spy cars.

The show arena features scenery from a Mediterranean village in the south of France. The arena's construction forced Studio Backlot Tour at the theme park to be almost halved in length, as the arena was built inside the Backlot Tour's attraction footprint.

The show arena at Walt Disney Studios Park.

The show has more than 40 vehicles in the show and backstage in the maintenance garage. The "hero" car is a custom-built design for the show, while the pursuit cars are Opel Corsas. The 3 different hero cars are all painted red and the pursuit cars are black, to easily allow guests to tell the difference between them. The show also includes specially designed cars that look identical to the others used in the show, two of which are red "hero" cars. One has the interior oriented backwards to allow the driver to appear to be driving in reverse; the other has a seat and steering wheel bolted onto the side of the car away from the audience, so that the car can be driven showing that there is no driver in the driver's seat.

One of the black "pursuit" cars is cut in half behind the front doors so that it can appear to explode during a scene in the show. The cars, while they appear simple and plain, are reinforced with rally car roll cages for driver safety and powered by 1300 cc 150 horsepower (110 kW) motorcycle engines mounted directly behind the driver's seat. The cars have four forward and four reverse gears, allowing them to be driven backwards at high speed.

The cars have a bump shift for easier gear shifting: the driver bumps the shifter forward to go up a gear, and back to go back a gear. In order to reverse, the driver twists the top of the shifter and bumps it forwards and backwards. The emergency brake automatically releases when the driver lets go. The show cars are lightweight, at 1,322 pounds (600 kg). The cars can be switched from front-wheel to four-wheel to rear-wheel drive to suit the slips and slides of the show. The drivers wear heavy protective suits; to keep the drivers cool in Florida heat, a cooling system in the rear of the car pumps water through the suits. The show also features jet skis on the small canal at the front of the theater, and motorcycles which maneuver around the cars.

The show

The show starts off with the "Ballet Chase." After lots of action, the scene ends with the hero car, along with three pursuit cars, jumping a bridge, the hero car facing backwards as well as a specially designed pursuit car being blown in half. Afterwards, they introduce the hero car driver and tell of a twin car that was designed so that the driver faces out the back, making the backwards jump much safer.

The next scene, the "Blockade" has multiple obstacles in the way. The hero, in the end drives up the back of a truck bed, over the "touch" truck, and down onto an airbag right before the scenes ends. The third hero car, with the driver on the side is now shown, with the driver hidden. After choosing a kid in the audience in chosen to "drive" the car, they eventually will "lose control" of the vehicle and it will turn around showing the driver.

The second to last sequence, the "Motorcycle Chase" has the stunt coordinator falling from about thirty feet from a building into an airbag. They will also have the hero jump on a jet ski before the final part of the scene where the hero shoots at barrels starting a fire. One of the pursuit motorcycle driver falls off his motorcycle into a fire, which is real. He is wearing multiple layers of clothing and special paint that is on fire, not the clothing. This takes about thirty minutes to fully put on.

They show the finished product with scenes that are prerecorded before the final scene begins automatically. The hero comes out before heading back behind the scenes, coming out a few seconds later driving out of a second-story window, down the "Blockade" truck bed and up a central ramp. Explosives fire when it jumps into the tunnel under the grandstands. After the explosives, all the pursuit cars and motorcycles, as well as all four versions of the hero car come out. These include the main car, reverse car, driver on the side car, and the motorcycle.
