Cars: Mario Andretti

Here is the Mattel 1:55 scale re-release of Mario Andretti from the original Cars! This release was available last year in the "Radiator Springs Classic" series- exclusive to Toys R Us.

As seen in the screen shot above, Mario appears near the entrance of the Los Angeles Speedway (right before the big Piston Cup race near the end of the film). He's based on and named after Mario Andretti, a famous retired Formula One Nascar driver.

Mario has seen his fair share of releases. He was originally released in the "Supercharged", "World of Cars", "Lenticular Eyes" and "Race O Rama" series, so I guess you could say this character isn't hard to track down at this point. You can find him on Amazon HERE or eBay using the link below:
