The NASCAR-inspired lead character Lightning McQueen, of course, needs no introduction, having starred in every Cars film to date. According to a revealing interview with Entertainment Weekly
, McQueen will be joined by new antagonist Jackson Storm voiced by Armie Hammer, portrayed as a mean, technologically advanced machine that represents developments in the auto industry since the first Cars movie way back in in 2006. Jackson will be powered by an 850-hp V8, with a top speed of 214 mph and a 0-60 mph time of 3.6 seconds, so McQueen may have met his match. It looks as if Jackson is the hybrid car that featured in the first trailer, an ode to the hybrid hypercars that are starting to gain prominence in the real world.
