New construction photographs have been released of Cars Land at Disney California Adventure, offering a behind-the-scenes glimpse of work on the highly-anticipated expansion.

The photos, posted by the Disney Parks Blog, show that work has progressed significantly ahead of Cars Land's debut in summer 2012. In particular, the mock Cadillac Mountain Range that will act as a backdrop for the Radiator Springs Racers ride now strongly resembles its expected final form.

Anchored by Radiator Springs Racers, a $200 million E-Ticket attraction, Cars Land marks the final phase of a $1.1 billion series of upgrades to Disney California Adventure. The 12-acre addition will also feature two other new rides - Mater's Junkyard Jamboree and Luigi's Flying Tires. It will also be home to two new dining locations (Fillmore's Taste In and Flo's V8 Café) and two retail outlets (Ramone's House of Body Art and Sarge's Surplus Hut).

Further construction images of Radiator Springs Racers can be found on the Disney Parks Blog.
