It is that time of the week again where we reveal yet another new character from the upcoming Cars 2 movie. This time we welcome a Japanese super car.

Shu Todoroki

Shu Todoroki is a Le Motor Prototype racer representing Japan and bearing #7 in the World Grand Prix. Shu was raised at the base of the active Mount Asama volcano in Japan, and soon became a champion on the Suzuka Circuit. His sleek design sports a fiery red Ka-Riu dragon, which Shu borrowed from Japanese legend because he relates to the small, yet fierce nature of the dragon. His team legacy is filled with victories – his coach, a Mazda, was the only Japanese car to ever win at Le Mans – and Shu hopes to prove his champion-level racing on the international stage of the World Grand Prix.

And, as usual here, is Shu in action.

Cars 2 is to be released in the UK and Ireland on July 22, 2011. You can find out more information at
