Takeshi is a small, white car from Japan. He, along with Hiroaki, are the hosts of a popular Japanese game show.
He is painted white and red, and wears a black and brown hat on his roof.
In Cars 2, Mater watches Takeshi's game show on television while he and Team McQueen fly to Tokyo on Everett. Hiroaki and Takeshi laugh when a contestant, Yukio, slips and wipes out on an obstacle course.
Takeshi's 1:55 scale die-cast model was released in a very limited quantity, under the label of "Super Chase." According to its cardback, only 4,000 models were produced in total.
