The narrator, Jim Douglas, tells the story of Herbie the Volkswagen Beetle. Herbie was owned by an egotistic race car driver and car dealer named Simon Moore III, who did not treat Herbie very well. During a race, Simon called Herbie junk, which caused Herbie to rebel against him, and they ended up in last place. Simon was not pleased, and he threw out Herbie in a junkyard. Hank Cooper, a small-town mechanic who works in a local garage, enters a junk-car race, where drivers select a jalopy and attempt to start and race it. Hank ends up getting “last choice” and is forced to choose the only car left, the broken-down Herbie. Assisted by his “spiritually enlightened” but goofy friend Roddy, Hank manages to get Herbie started just before he is towed off the track. In appreciation of Hank’s kindness, Herbie manages to win the race, trouncing such junkers as a Cadillac limousine and an early-model Corvair Monza convertible.

The judges of the race – Donny Shotz, an auto customizer; Alex, whom Hank used to date; and Simon – find it hard to believe that such a tiny car could run so fast, and Alex challenges Hank to prove that he didn’t use any tricks during the race. Hank takes Alex for a ride, showing off Herbie’s speed, and their relationship is re-kindled – with Herbie driving them to an isolated area and locking his doors, as he did with Jim Douglas and Carol Bennett in the first movie. Meanwhile, Roddy tells Hank that Herbie is special, and takes him to an automotive art show. At the show, Simon sees Herbie and attempts to discover why the car that failed him took Hank to victory. He discovers that Herbie was built by Dr. Gustav Stumpfel shortly after World War II.
