Video: Cars meets Tokyo Drift

Just in time to go along with Saturday morning cartoons, this is a segment from Disney’s Cars television show called Mater’s Tall Tales. This one stars the rusty old tow truck from the animated film in a parody of The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift.

The cartoon should be enough to hold you over until the sequel, Cars 2 arrives in theaters in 2011.

I like the drift race parody. It’s very engaging!

I hope that the 2011 movie will rock like the first one.

Do you know that the computers used in the development of the film were four times faster than those used in The Incredibles and 1,000 times faster than those used in Toy Story. To build the cars, the animators used computer platforms very similar to those used in the design of real-world automobiles

In Japan, Disney Japan and Toyota backuped racing team Cars Racing replaced its racing car "Toy Story apr MR-S" and introduced the "Lightning McQueen apr MR-S" for the 2008 Super GT season. The car was based on the Toyota MR-S and the externals of the car were modeled on its of McQueen as much as possible. This include their number change from their original #101 to McQueen’s #95. They won in Race 3 that season

I like the way they turn from harcore racing to drifting in this episode. I hope to see more of this in the up coming movie

These TV teasers are media market experiment, try to guage the possible market of the second and installment and of course boosting the potential of the second movie

Purely recreational amphibian cars include the 1960s Amphicar and the contemporary Gibbs Aquada. With almost 4.000 pieces built, the Amphicar is still the most successfully produced civilian amphibious car to date. The Gibbs Aquada stands out due to its capability of high speed planing on water. Now about the Car’s television teaser in fact it is all about drifting ala Fast and the Furious.

Who says we don’t have cars that swim. Amphibious automobiles have been conceived from ca. 1900, however the Second World War significantly stimulated their development. Two of the most significant amphibious cars to date were developed during World War II. The most proliferous was the German Schwimmwagen, a small jeep-like 4x4 vehicle designed by the Porsche engineering firm in 1942 and widely used in World War II. The amphibious bodywork was designed by Erwin Komenda, the firm’s body construction designer, using the engine and drive train of the Kübelwagen. An amphibious version of the Willys MB jeep, the Ford GPA or ’Seep’ (short for Sea jeep) was developed during World War II as well. A specially modified GPA, called Half-Safe, was driven and sailed around the world by Australian Ben Carlin in the 1950s.One of the most capable post-war amphibious off-roaders was the German Amphi-Ranger, that featured a hull made of seawater-resistant AlMg2 aluminium alloy. Extensively engineered, this costly vehicle was proven seaworthy at a Gale force 10 storm off the North Sea coast. Only about 100 were built - those who own one have found it capable of crossing the English Channel almost effortlessly.

It’s basically a teaser for the Cars second installment. By keeping the kids and adults more engaged into the Walt Disney Franchised pictures thru television.

funny because I was thinking of the same thing! cars should know how to swim.

  (177) posted on 05.16.2009

I hope they’d be able to invent a car that can swim just like in the video. This way, I won’t be stranded when the streets are flooded.

Nope. I don’t think so. They’d still do good in the market. It’s nice to see those old rusty cars do the trick.

They are so cute! But isn’t it too early to show this? It might spoil everything since it will premiere about 2 more years from now.

I’m not really a fan of cartoons but this looks kind of cool. I like the third installment of fast and furious so I might enjoy it!
