Detailing 'Sterling': The Brilliant Business-Car in 'Cars 3' & Owner of The Rust-Eze Racing Center

Cars 3 Rust Eze racing Center with Lightning McQueen and Sterling
In the upcoming Cars 3, Nathan Fillion lends his voice to Sterling, a suave chief executive coupe who becomes the new sponsor of Lighting McQueen. Today, EW released a few additional details on this brilliant business-car. After purchasing the humble Rust-Eze Racing Center, Sterling (who is a marketing genius) transforms it into a state-of-the-art training facility. Fillion points out that Sterling's charm is what helps him build the Rust-Eze empire, "He's business first, but knows that business is also about relationships." Like the relationship with Lighting McQueen when he first visits the new Rust-Eze Racing Center, it is Sterling who wants to catapult him back to the top of the racers - however, Lighting must learn to abide by the new rules of modern racing.

“I think of Sterling as a ten-thousand dollar suit. He’s not a giant man that comes into a room and holds court and demands everybody kiss his ring. He’s not that kind of leader. He’s down to earth and charming and the exactly person you figure should be running this company. He’s the kind of guy that makes you think, hey, I could have a beer with this guy. Or a quart of oil.” - Brian Fee

Cars 3 Sterling

The filmmakers of Cars 3 wanted Sterling's design to be classic and timeless, as the team looked at various European cars from the 1960's - reminding us of Finn McMissile's sporty and confident design.  While Lighting McQueen has aged throughout the Cars series, director Brian Fee noted that both Sterling and Lighting McQueen are about the same age, "...but a businessman's expiration date never really comes if he's good".  While Sterling is at the top of his game, McQueen's best days may be behind him.
