Peter Thorndyke is the main antagonist in The Love Bug.

Role in the film

Peter is a car salesman and race car driver by profession. He owns a European Imported Car dealership and sells Herbie to Jim Douglas. He was discovering that Jim was winning by Herbie and wanted to dispose of him.

When Tang Wu meets him, Peter bargins with him if he wins, Peter can have Herbie. But if Jim wins, Tang can have his shop, and Jim won. Peter is now a mechanic in Tang's Car Shop. Despite his villianous character, he appears to be a very skilled racing driver, finishing behind only Jim in the various races in the movie. He also wins the race before the El Dorado event.

Peter's most famous car is a yellow GT car he calls the "Thorndyke Special", which is actually an Apollo 3500 GT. He also drives a Ferrari and a Jaguar in various races in the film.
