His role in the film
Vladimir Trunkov (voiced by Stanley Townsend) is a minor antagonist in the second film. He is the head lemon of the "Trunkov" family. He and his Trunkovs work with Professor Zündapp. During the film, Vladimir and the other main heads of the three lemon families (Gremlin, Pacer, Hugo) attend a meeting with Professor Z in Porto Corsa to discuss their evil plans about discrediting the Allinol by using the radiation disguised camera to crash out the racers in the World Grand Prix that use the gas, and ensure that all cars keep using conventional fuel to secure the profits of their "lemon" organization who managed to secure the largest unexplored oil resources in the world.
Vladimir is seen smiling at the idea. Near the end of the film, Vladimir and the lemons surround Mater, McQueen and the British agents in an intersection, confirming them of the lemons' intent to kill McQueen, saying that it's nothing peronsal. He is eventually arrested by Sheriff in London with fellow lemons. Vladimir is modeled after a ZAZ-966 Zaporozhets car, with the some adjustments: the logo T on his front bumper, that stands for his last name; Trunkov.
