Shu Todoroki is a Japanese race car.
Shu Todoroki is a Le Motor Prototype racer representing Japan and bearing #7 in the World Grand Prix. Shu was raised at the base of the active Mount Asama volcano in Japan, and soon became a champion on the Suzuka Circuit. His sleek design sports a fiery red Ka-Riu dragon, which Shu borrowed from Japanese legend because he relates to the small, yet fierce nature of the dragon. His team legacy is filled with victories – his coach, a Mazda, was the only Japanese car to ever win at Le Mans – and Shu hopes to prove his champion-level racing on the international stage of the World Grand Prix.
In Cars 2, he participated in the three World Grand Prix races and in the Radiator Springs Grand Prix. Shu revealed himself to be one of the best racers in the competition. He finished in fourth place in the Tokyo race, and kept that position most of the time in the other two races. He was the last car in the Porto Corsa race and one of three cars in it whose motor/engine exploded. He violently enters into a collision with Miguel Camino, and Max Schnell hits them both, which they both couldn't break in time. They eventually hit and pileup. After time comes, Raoul ÇaRoule and Rip Clutchgoneski are also trying to break, but it's too late, and they also crashed into Shu. At last comes Jeff Gorvette and Lewis Hamilton. They braked very fast and didn't crash into Shu Todoroki. However, he was able to recover and participate in the final race in London. In that race, his pit was between Francesco's and Miguel Camino's, and he was seen in the 9th position behind Nigel Gearsley and Carla Veloso. In the Radiator Springs Grand Prix, he was seen at the 4th position in front of Rip Clutchgoneski and Miguel Camino.
