Bob Cutlass is a racing announcer for the Piston Cup.
In Cars, Bob is announcing in the Piston Cup with Darrell Cartrip. After Lightning McQueen, Chick Hicks and The King result in a three-way tie, Bob and Darrell can't believe their eyes and are excitedly trying to decide on a winner.
Bob is a 1988 Saxon Grand Touring Sports Coupe 3-Liter Inline Six 200 HP Sae @ 6,000 RPM. He is also based on a 1999 Oldsmobile Aurora, although the Aurora was never offered as a 2 door model. He is painted entirely in a dark shade of grey, having chrome rims and mirrors.
Unlike Darrell Cartrip, Bob takes his announcing rather seriously, with him usually providing the factual commentary while Darrell provides humorous information and speculation. These qualities have landed him additional announcing occupations on television and radio, such as America's Funniest Sports Utility Vehicles, tractor pulling, monster truck rallies, and even the Olympics.
The only character that Bob has had extended interactions with is Darrell Cartrip, and the pair appear to be good friends.
"Bob Cutlass is a world renowned sports announcer. He's covered every sporting event from tractor pulls to monster truck rallies, including the last three Olympic games, but he's most famous for teaming up with former Piston Cup racer Darrell Cartrip to announce Piston Cup racing on the Racing Sports Network. Bob Cutlass is the voice of reason to Darrell's enthusiastic color commentary. Bob is also the host of Sunday night's TV staple "America's Funniest Sports Utility Vehicles."
