Cars 2: Mile Axlerod

Here we have the original Cars 2 2011 release of Sir Miles Axlerod (#17)! This is a 1:55 scale scale diecast car from Mattel.

Axlerod is the founder of the WGP (World Grand Prix) race and is revealed to be the story's main villain near the end of the film. He is the mastermind behind the greedy plot to turn the world against alternative fuel. The WGP race was used as a public display to make alernative fuel look bad with the hope that more cars would then "race back to gasoline, bringing profits to himself (and a gang of "lemons") due to the fact that they own one of the largest oil reserves "in the world."

Mattel has also had other versions of this character released as well, such as last year's Miles Axlerod "with open hood" and this year's "Wild Miles Axlerod". Additionally, there was also a talking "lights and sounds" release as well.

This car is not currently available in stores, but if you're looking to add him to your collection, be sure to check eBay or Amazon.
