Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • This is the first mockbuster film to have a videogame tie in.
  • According to Vídeo Brinquedo, the Os Carrinhos franchise has been sold in over 30 countries.
  • The music that plays during the credits vaguely resembles the Back to the Future theme.
  • The characters' names were changed in the English dub, (e.g. Tonny was renamed to Cruise) however when the series was localised the names changed again.
  • The film has strange parallels to Cars 3 which was released 11 years after the film's release. Both have a yellow car with the same name (with different spelling), a black car as the main antagonist, and the big race where the champion is unable to participate.
