Jim Douglas, his partner and mechanic Wheely Applegate, and Herbie arrive in Paris to qualify for and compete in the Trans-France Race (a fictional version of the Monte Carlo Rally), in the hopes of staging a career comeback. The team has three major opponents in the race. The first is Bruno Von Stickle, a German driver with experience in the “European Racing Circuit”. He is deemed to be a formidable contender prior to and during the race. The second is Claude Gilbert, a French driver. His dominance in the race seemed similar to that of von Stickle, until he ended up crashing in the later stages. The third is Diane Darcy, a very beautiful, if somewhat icy, feminist-minded, young woman and the only female driver in the Trans-France Race.

She initially hates Jim for apparently his, but what was actually Herbie’s, knee-jerk behavior that ruined her chances of succeeding during the first qualifying rounds. This was because of Herbie sighting and falling in love at first sight with Giselle, her Lancia Scorpion. As being a car with whom Herbie falls in love during the film (much as Jim seems to be attracted to Diane herself), Herbie’s infatuation with Giselle results in him compromising his full original plan of winning the Trans-France Race, and turning against that same will of his partners, Jim and Wheely. However, the strong-willed Diane does not appear to believe in any cars that can be alive and have a mind of their own.
