This exhibit features models, concept art, and more showing some of the work that went into bringing Cars Land to life.

One of the cases holds a series of models and maquettes. Some interesting notes, from left to right: A ride vehicle maquette 1:10 scale. The left side of this model shows the EPCOT Test Track vehicle so you can see the difference. Luigi from the Racers. This is a 1:10 scale model. Interesting here is the left side is machine-carved and the right is detailed by hand. A Piston Cup Maquette from Flo's/Doc's. This is full scale. A ride vehicle from the Flying Tires maquette at 1:5 scale.
