"Hey, McQueen! Over here!"
Lewis Hamilton, Cars 2

Lewis Hamilton is a British race car who is one of the World Grand Prix racers in Cars 2.

Creation and development

Lewis' original design

Lewis is based on, named after and voiced by the real British Formula One driver Lewis Hamilton. Hamilton chose the car’s final black and yellow paint scheme for the car in the movie.

Originally, Lewis was to be named Lewis Revington. He had a grayish paint job with a ghost pattern of Union Jack, and wheel trims shaped after the Union Jack, exactly as the final design of Prince Wheeliam. It seems that the gray color was chosen after the colors of the McLaren racing team. He was also racing for England solely.

Lewis Hamilton was directly involved in the design of his character, (and was also the only voice actor to do so): at his suggestion, the gray design was abandoned (and apparently passed on to Prince Wheeliam) and changed to the final yellow-striped black paint job, with different wheels. Producer Denise Ream said: "He was very particular about what he wanted. His emblem combines the Union Jack and the flag of Grenada – which is on his actual helmet. He wanted the car to be black with yellow pinstriping, and he picked the wheels. We had a great time sending pictures back and forth and sharing notes."


Cars 2

Lewis, Jeff and Lightning

In Cars 2, he first appears talking with Lightning McQueen and Jeff Gorvette when they arrive at the World Grand Prix opening ceremony in Tokyo, which he and Jeff meet McQueen. When they notice Mater talking to Zen Master, he was wondering who he was with. He then later appears with the other World Grand Prix racers when Mater is drinking from the fountain after having too much wasabi, which he thought was pistachio ice cream. He is then seen at the race, which he appears in all three.

Lewis was seen at the Porto Corsa race behind Jeff Gorvette. When the pileup of cars starts during the Italy race, Hamilton and Gorvette stop to avoid being hit and are the only racers to be able to do so, which he along with Jeff were the only cars who did not crash into Shu Todoroki, and a few of the racers who did not get hit by the Lemons' electromagnetic pulse generator. Before the London race, Lewis was seen with Jeff laughing at Mater and McQueen in Mater's flashback. He then races in London. When the race begins, he was seen in the 4th position behind Miguel Camino. After the racers race through the Admiralty Arch he was seen in the 3rd position, passing Miguel. After that, he raced in Radiator Springs. In the race, he and Jeff were in each other's positions, which he talks with Jeff while lining up, and raced beside him.

Cars 2: The Video Game

In Cars 2: The Video Game, Lewis appeared in beta screenshots of the PSP version, but was possibly removed from the final game.

General information

Physical description


CARS 2 - Lewis Hamilton - Disney Pixar - Only at the Movies June 23

Turntable video

According to Meet the Cars Lewis is a 2009 Grand Touring Sport Special GBG. Because he is not named after the exact car like majority of the other WGP racers, and there being differences to him, Lewis is a Pixar in-house design. His car is inspired after a McLaren MP4-12C GT3. Another change they made for him is that he represents a GTS1 (GT1), as shown in his ICE racer design for example. With this change, they had to consider what his performance would look like. He has a top speed of 190 mph, and a 0-60 of 3.4 seconds. Lewis' engine is a DOHC V-8, with a horsepower of 575.

He is painted completely black with yellow lining on his sides. He has the number 2 painted on his doors, inside of a badge with his country and Grenada's flags and the WGP logo. He has a spoiler with yellow and black, as well as the World Grand Prix logo, on it.

Personality and traits

Lewis is humble about his victories, and does not brag to others, unlike Francesco. He is friendly towards his opponents, and appears to have a close friendship to Lightning McQueen, as well as Jeff Gorvette and his replacements.


Profiles and statistics

Cars 2

  • Bios
    • "Lewis Hamilton, the famously sleek and seriously fast #2 Grand Touring Sports champion, has been a determined and winning racer for nearly his entire young life. Like all youngster cars, Lewis spent his childhood going to school, taking karate lessons and winning the British Karting Championship by the age of 10. Today, the celebrated native Brit continues to bring an exceptional work ethic and soft-spoken confidence to the race course where his extraordinary achievements speak for themselves via a spotless track record on the junior and professional circuits. With his striking metallic black and yellow paint scheme, Lewis will represent Great Britain at the World Grand Prix. His car also carries the flag of Grenada, home to his family who emigrated to Britain in the 1950s. His unrivaled technical skills, natural speed ability and cool, karate-inspired attitude make him a powerful contender too."
