Max Schnell is a World Grand Prix racer in Cars 2.

Appearances

Cars 2

Max Schnell started as a humble production sedan from Stuttgart, Germany. An avid amateur racer, Max would practice alone in the back roads of the dense Black Forest—a trek that eventually caught the eye of a racing team owner. Soon Max was on a professional circuit, bearing the #4, and as his horsepower increased, he converted himself to carbon fiber, dropping his weight and getting into prime racing shape. He’s won more races at Motorheimring than any other World Torque Champion League car in history. A naturally brilliant engineer, he used logic and analytics to refine his build, and plans to approach the World Grand Prix in the same perfectly calculated manner.

Like all World Grand Prix racers, Max Schnell participated in all three races of the competition as well as the Radiator Springs Grand Prix. He was first seen at the party in Tokyo with the other racers. Max's performance in the W.G.P. was really good. Max went up to the third position on the dirt section followed by Nigel Gearsley in Tokyo, but started falling behind afterwards. And at the beginning of the Tokyo race, he at first took the 1st position. But after time, he was passed by Francesco Bernoulli, Lightning McQueen, Carla Veloso, Shu Todoroki and Jeff Gorvette. He was the third race car to be nearly destroyed by the Lemons' camera, as his engine was blown by the machine near the end of the race. In the Porto Corsa and London races, he was seen both times following Miguel Camino from the 5th to 4th position. During the huge crash in Porto Corsa, he tries to brake before the pile-up. However, he fails and violently collides into Miguel Camino and Shu Todoroki. Soon afterwards, Raoul ÇaRoule and Rip Clutchgoneski crash into them. He apparently got fixed and raced in London, and then appeared at the Radiator Springs Grand Prix.

Sebastian Schnell

In the German version of Cars 2, Max Schnell is renamed Sebastian Schnell, and voiced by Sebastian Vettel. He replaces Jeff Gorvette for one scene and becomes the racer who, along with Lewis Hamilton, meets Lightning McQueen at the World Grand Prix welcome party.[2][3] Nevertheless, Jeff Gorvette still appears in the races.

This is part of a localization of Cars 2 in several countries.

Trivia

  • Max's name comes from the German phrase mach schnell, which translates as "make it quick."
  • Max Schnell has on his hood the inscription "WTCL". This represents the name of his racing league, the World Torque Champion League. It is an allusion to the WTCC, the World Touring Car Championship. Max's design, however, apparents him to the DTM (Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters), another type of touring car racing.
  • Max's pit stop crew chief is an Audi TT named Otto Bonn.
  • On Max's tires reads "TRU-TREAD - Traction A Temperature A - P215/65R15 89H", a recurring inscription on the tires of many characters of Cars 2.
  • Max Schnell's body was reused for Vitaly Petrov, Frosty, Memo Rojas, Jr., Flash and Long Ge.
  • Although silent in the original version of Cars 2, Max speaks in Cars 2: The Video Game.
  • Even though he so far does not appear in Disney Infinity, he is seen on a picture in Ramone's House of Body Art.
  • In the toy line, Max Schnell invites his fellow T-ROC racers to Nurburg, Germany to race on the track there, where he also decks them out with Carbon Fiber elements to make them faster. The cars included in the Carbon Racers line are Lightning McQueen, Max Schnell, Raoul Caroule, Miguel Camino, Nigel Gearsley, and Lewis Hamilton.
