German Race Car
Otto Von Fassenbottom is a race car from Germany and one of the international visitors in Cars: Mater-National Championship. He comes to Radiator Springs to compete in the Mater-National series of races. During the events of Cars: Mater-National, he is caught by Sheriff after speeding, but Lightning convinces Sheriff to let him go by hosting a race between the three of them, Snot Rod and Gerald. In races, he has high acceleration and handling, but low boost and stability.
Cars: Mater-National ChampionshipIn Cars: Mater-National Championship, Otto first appears in the cut-scene for North Willys Butte, where Sheriff pulls him over from speeding. Then Lightning McQueen came over and asked what the problem was. Sheriff said that he caught a speeder speeding. Otto says that he's a racecar, so he doesn't go slow. Then Lightning challenges him to a 3 lap race, and he asks Sheriff to join, which he did. After being beaten in the race, he wants to race again. Lightning tells him to take a break and see the town. He has a girlfriend named Jenny, who Lightning says he can't go back without a gift for her, so Otto went to visit Lizzie to ask for a tour, and about Stanley, and how things were different now to old days. Otto likes to sign autographs, and he has cruise control.
Otto came out of Lizzie's shop covered all over with stickers. Also, when Lightning and Doc Hudson were entering the stadium for the first time, Doc asks who that guy covered with stickers was, who was probably Otto.
Otto lives his life with a rock star attitude, doing what he wants when he wants, even if it gets him in trouble with the law. His vast love for racing creates a strong desire to compete, apparently having enough motivation to race for at least 24 hours.

Otto's got a rock star attitude, and he knows what he likes - and he likes to drive fast. He spends a lots of his free time crusing the Autobahn back home, with Jenny his girlfriend. Yet he doesn't understand the concept of speed limits."
