"Sounds like you need some roadside assistance."
Ivan, Cars 2

Ivan (pronounced ee-vawn, not eye-vin) is the quaternary antagonist of Cars 2 and one of Victor Hugo's workers.

Bio

Cars 2

Most tow trucks just look tough, but Ivan is really tough. From his front grille to his rear hook, he's built solid. What else would you expect from Victor Hugo's personal chauffeur? The rumor that he demolished a subcompact with one drop of the tow boom may sound preposterous, but it's absolutely true. Still, every tough truck has a weakness and for Ivan it's helping a pretty sports car with a flat tire. All she has to do is give a wink and a shy smile, and he's ready with "roadside assistance".

In Cars 2, Ivan is a blue tow truck who works for Victor Hugo. He is Victor's personal transportation, towing him place to place. He also serves as a bodyguard. During the film, Mater disguises himself as Ivan to infiltrate the lemon meeting being held in Porto Corsa to get info. Holley Shiftwell tases Ivan before this so he doesn't blow their cover. He later regains consciousness and captures Holley. When Mater was trying to get Lightning McQueen's attention in a crowd, the lemons grab him with Ivan taking his place. He was last seen near the end of the movie trying to attack McQueen only to be taken out by Mater and arrested in London with all the other lemon employers.
