This. Is. Lightning McQueen™.

Ultimate Lightning McQueen is the top of the line racer packed with personality. With animated eyes, an animatronic mouth, and emotive suspension, experience Lightning like never before.

A seven-time Piston Cup Champion, Ultimate Lightning McQueen was born to race. Connect to the app, hit the gas, and see Lightning respond to your commands with his personality on display, thanks to emotive actions and speech. Watch him lean into hairpin turns and drift like a pro.

When you’re not driving and drifting with Lightning, sharpen your pit crew skills in Pit Stop Panic, create scripts for Lightning to perform in his next Rust-eze spot in the Acting Studio, or kick back and relax by watching Disney•Pixar’s Cars with Lightning while he reacts to the movie.

Features include:

Slide your finger on the driving pad to guide Lightning... he’ll go wherever you push the joystick, drift, do donuts, and even react to his expert racing moves.

Train hard and join the pit crew. Lightning coaches you as you race the clock changing tires, fueling up, and getting racers back on the track.

Direct Lightning McQueen as he prepares to be on camera. Create scripts with your favorite phrases and actions for him to perform.

Watch Disney•Pixar’s Cars with Lightning and watch him react to the movie. Select this option with Lightning plugged in to charge, start the movie, and hear all he has to say.

Now watch Lightning react to Disney•Pixar's "Cars 2" and "Cars 3" and see more of his story unfold. Because sometimes it's just as fun to watch the race.

It's what Lightning McQueen does best. Race against opponents from Disney•Pixar's "Cars 3". Test your skills, perform maneuvers, and see your competition's progress on your device's screen while racing around your home.

Did we mention winning? The more you drive, play, and act, the more you can unlock in the new achievements section. Get playing and unlock them all.

Remote control enthusiasts, rejoice! Ultimate Lightning McQueen now has the option to use RC controls. The joystick on the left side of the app screen controls forward and reverse, and the joystick on the right moves you left and right. Check out settings to turn on RC Driving throughout the app.

How to setup

Hello all. السلام عليكم
This is just to share some information.
If the update reach 79 to 88 % there will be message say to open your WiFi and connect to Lighitng5 and it will give you password, and that used to transfer the data and the update to the car. Yes it is very annoying that ever time you try connect to the car it will look for update, so my advice after you get connected to the car and get the update done the next time you want to play make sure the WiFi is off the 4G is off to.

السيارة جيدة ولاكن إذا اول مرة تحاول لاتصال ب السيارة لازم تعمل التحديث للتطبيق و السيارة. وراح يطول. وذا وصل التحديث الي ٧٩ أو ٨٨ % راح يطلب منك ان توصل الي شبكة باسم lightening5 و راح يعطيك كلمة المرور. و إذا تم لاقتران راح يحدث برنامج السيارة مع الصوت و المشكلة مابعد يضيفون العربي.
وبعد ما يخلص التحديث راح تشتغل السيارة وأنا انصح إذا بغيت تلعب مرة ثانية طف الوايرلس و طف ٤ ج وانشالله راح تشتغل من دون مشاكل

I hope this will help out. However if the car come with remote will be better because this car is expensive.

Works fine...

I received my Ultimate Lightning McQueen today, and most of the feature work fine. It’s the movie part I am trying to get to work but just can’t seem to. A little help, please? Thanks so much.

Great product

This car is amazing, it might get tricky and take a bit of time to set up but just be patient because it’s so worth the wait. My kid LOVES this car. When we needed to contact costumer service I was so surprise buy the level of care and how amazing they were. Truly they have the best costumer service a company could hope for. 5 stars
