Though CARS is far from being my favorite Pixar film, I have no doubt that the team working on it is giving it the same care and attention that every one of their projects receive, especially when it comes to visuals. The way the American landscape is nostalgically depicted in CARS was my favorite part of the movie and, as the concept art shows, they are now focusing on showing the rest of the world.

Empire Magazine reported in September that CARS 2 will show "Lightning McQueen (Owen Wilson), his pit team and new pit boss Mater head around the world for the Race of Champions, to take place in five different countries and involve the champions of different disciplines like Formula One and rally driving. First up is a race in Tokyo, starting at Mount Fuji and heading downtown; then there's a German race through the Black Forest; then "Porto Corsa" in Italy, which is based partly on the Monte Carlo Grand Prix; then a 24-hour race around Paris...and finally a thrilling climax in London, approaching Buckingham Palace."

The concept art, which you can see after the jump, gives us a glimpse at the race in Tokyo.
