""You won't believe what I've found out here. This is bigger than anything we've ever seen. And no one even knows it exists!""
Leland Turbo in his message to Finn McMissile, [[{{{3}}}]]

The Oil Rig is a big building in the middle of the northern Pacific Ocean, and a location in Cars 2. In the first part of the movie, Finn McMissile goes to the biggest oilfield in the world, owned by oil tycoon Miles Axlerod. These oil platforms are clandestine structures. They are kept under complete secret by scrambling satellite images, and by protecting them on sea by combat ships. The oil rigs are owned by the criminal organization directed by Miles Axlerod, which plans to get the world dependent on them for fuel, by securing this location, and its oil.


The oil platforms sit on 4 legs, showing that they are fixed platforms. Each platform has a flare stack and various cranes.


  • In the trailer, it is said that it makes the Bermuda Triangle look like a kiddy pool.
  • The oil rigs are the only location in Cars 2 that aren't car-ified (integrating automotive elements in its architecture). Production Designer Harley Jessup commented: “John [Lasseter] said it was already "car-ified": It’s creating their food.”
