- —Victor Hugo, Cars 2
Victor Hugo is the leader of the Hugo Family.
In Cars 2, Victor and a group of Hugos travel to Porto Corsa to attend a secret meeting with the Gremlin, Pacer and Trunkov families. Before Victor arrives at the casino in Karl Haulzemoff, Holley Shiftwell tasers his other transporter Ivan to allow for Mater to take Victor into the casino and sneak into the meeting in disguise, while Holley and Finn McMissile view the meeting from an invisible camera placed on Mater. At the meeting, Victor and the lemons learn from their boss that in order to pay the world back for making fun of them, they shall sell all of their oil from a secret oil reserve once the World Grand Prix is declared to no longer be run on Allinol and every car will shun alternative fuel. However, once Grand Prix racer Lightning McQueen announces that he will still use Allinol for the race in London, the lemons all hatch a plan to kill him.
In London, Victor, Tubbs Pacer, Vladimir Trunkov, J. Curby Gremlin and Professor Zündapp prepare for a bomb they have planted to kill both McQueen and Mater, only for Finn and Holley to chase after Professor Zündapp and rescue McQueen and Mater. Shortly, Victor and every other lemon corner Finn, Holley, McQueen and Mater to prevent them from escaping, but all of McQueen and Mater's friends arrive to help them fight the lemons. Ultimately, Victor and the rest of the lemons are all arrested by the police for their crimes.
