Dephare was a car who worded as a headlight vendor at the Marché Aux Pièces market in Paris, France. In 2011, Tow Mater, Finn McMissile, and Holley Shiftwell passed by her market stall. Mater stopped to inspect said shop, and questioned the owner on what she was selling. Suddenly, Dephare opened and revealed her unusual eyes, located in place of her headlights, while explaining that she sells headlights, which startleed Mater, after what he quickly drived away from the shop.
Dephare was Sportit car with a red livery, though her body was relatively rusty. Her registration plate number was "CUR 10 SIT3". Unlike most cars, she had her blue eyes in place on her front headlights instead windshield. She had no windshield, revealing her interior, which included elements such as a rearview mirror, front and back seats, dashboard, and a steering wheel.
Her model appeared to be derived from a hard-top 1969 Alfa Romeo 1750 Spider Veloce.

- Dephare's character is a reference to how early concepts of Cars intended for vehicles' eyes to be on their headlights rather than their windshields, similar to other anthropomorphic vehicles, such as those featured in Chevron advertisements. The Pixar team, however, ultimately decided against this decision, instead choosing the windshield as the cars' eye locations.
- Celine is the first and only character in the Cars series to have eyes in place of her headlights.
- When translated from French, Celine Dephare name means "Celine of headlights".
- Her registration plate number, "CUR 10 SIT3", is a code for French word "criosité" which means "curiosity" and reflects Dephare's appearance.
