After passing through the Admiralty Arch she was seen in 9th place, in front of Raoul ÇaRoule and Rip Clutchgoneski. She was seen at the Radiator Springs Grand Prix race, talking with Shu Todoroki. During the race she was seen in 3rd place like usual however her position dropped to 4th due to Mater passing everyone with his rockets.
Cars 2: The Video Game
In Cars 2: The Video Game, Carla is a playable character, unlocked once access to Clearance Level 2 is granted. She is a medium weight, and has more speed than she does power.
Carla appears as a playable character in Cars: Fast as Lightning, unlocked by earning all of her stickers, which can be obtained by completing all of Miguel Camino's races. She has four additional paint jobs, Carnaval, Quente, ICE and Neon Carla, all of which can be unlocked by completing practice races at Carla's Track, obtaining all of their corresponding stickers. She has her own home, Carla's Pit, which is also where she parks in the player's town.
In A Friend in Trouble, Carla and her team have noticed that their equipment has gone missing, so she and Lightning team up to find them. They find the objects, but also receive help from other competitors and teams.
Carla is a 2009 Le Motor Prototype B12 Racer according to Meet the Cars. She is powered by a 5.5 liter twin turbocharged diesel V-12 engine with 725 HP. She can accelerate from 0-60 mph in 2.8 seconds and reach a top speed of 206 mph (175 mph according to the Cars 2: Essential Guide book).
. Given that Carla represents a Le Mans Prototype coupe built in 2009, her design closely resembles a Lola LMP1. Her vehicle type name is a reference to the 2012 Lola-Drayson B12/69 EV which its chassis name is B0960-HU03. With this in mind, she is based on the 2009 Drayson Racing Lola B09/60 Judd. Her rear exhaust pipes look like the ones seen on the 2006 Audi R10 TDi which makes her engine a reference to this Le Mans Prototype as well.
Carla is a glittery car painted green and blue, with a large blue spoiler sporting the World Grand Prix logo on it. She has blue splitter at the front which helps create downforce. She has blue 12-spoke rims, as well as grey and orange headlights. The three dots on her sides are LED lights, which are commonly seen on endurance sports cars. Her roof features an air intake.

Although Carla is a friendly competitor, it reveals in Cars 2: The Video Game that she can play dirty when the player makes her side-bash another car.
"Carla hails from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil where she's been known to dance the night away at the famous 'CAR-nival' but nothing makes her happier than being on the racetrack. Carla was drafted into the 24-hour endurance racing team in Europe after setting a new track record on her local circuit. Now, in the World Grand Prix, this proud Brazilian Le Motor Prototype racer, wearing #8, is the only female in the field."
