Papo is a character that appeared in Cars: The Video Game. He is a Mexican race car of few words but many talents, that visited Radiator Springs with his friend El Guapo to challenge Lightning McQueen to a race.

In Cars: The Video Game, Papo appears as an opponent in the races Radiator Cap Circuit and North Desert Dash, where he is usually found in the lower standings of the results. In the cutscenes for the events, Papo does not say anything, instead choosing to side with what El Guapo says and does. In addition to his race appearances, Papo is also one of the speeders that Sheriff must chase down in the "Road Hazards" level of Sheriff's Hot Pursuit, alongside Snot Rod and Lenny.

Papo appears to be a 1947 Chevrolet Coupe. He is coated with purple livery, with blue "flame" designs on his hood and doors. He has hydraulics and can only speak Spanish. Due to his shape, some fans have mistaken him for Doc Hudson when he appears in race tracks in Arcade mode.
