Pete Stanchek (Stephen W. Burns) has inherited the one-of-a-kind automobile from his uncle Jim Douglas. Pete goes down to Mexico with his friend Davie (Charles Martin Smith) to pick up the car. There, they come across Paco (Joaquin Garay III), a puny pickpocket. Unbeknownst to them, Paco has hitched a ride under Herbie\'s hood to eschew three other irate victims of his thievery.
Pete and Davie board a ship to Rio to enter Herbie in the Brazil Grand Primeo. On the trip, they meet a shy young woman named Melissa (Elyssa Davalos) and her extragavant aunt Louise (Cloris Leachman), who is trying to find a man for Melissa. When Herbie causes damage on board, Pete and Davie come up with a plan to cover the costs. Pete pretends to like Melissa and Aunt Louise is soon sponsoring the guys for their race.
