Rod "Torque" Redline from Pixar's CARS 2 - Click above for high-res image gallery

We're pretty big fans of the Pixar film CARS and have been following closely the gestation of its sequel, CARS 2, due in theaters on June 24. To that end, we've already introduced you to a dozen brand new characters who'll be rubbing bumpers with Lightning McQueen and Mater in the new movie. The folks at Pixar picked up on our enthusiasm and offered what is, to us, a very big honor: revealing a new character from CARS 2 exclusively on Autoblog!

So here he is. Meet Rod "Torque" Redline, described by the boys and girls at Pixar as "the greatest American spy in the world" and voiced by legendary Army of Darkness star Bruce Campbell. Clearly inspired by the best Made-in-the-USA muscle machines on the market today, Rod's shape appears to be most heavily influenced by the Ford Mustang and Dodge Challenger, with just enough cues from both to keep his shape ambiguous enough to avoid the lawyers. Sorry Camaro, your influence seems AWOL on Mr. Redline, but you're already the star of a little independant film franchise called Transformers. Regardless, Rod looks ready for action in what's shaping up to be a much farther reaching story than the stuck-in-Radiator-Springs plot of the first film.

Check out Rod "Torque" Redline's official description and turntable video after the jump, as well as our ongoing gallery of new CARS 2 character below.
