Update – 11/7/07: Apparently, buyers of Cars on Blu-ray have discovered a special offer inside. Here is the description.

Blu Ray DVD Exclusive Mail In CAR: Disney/ Pixar ordered 15K to offer the consumers the option to mail in and receive this special Dinoco Blu Ray Deco McQueen. It is a double Rangsburg Blue Metallic.

This blue Lightning McQueen is the same Car that came with the case that was auctioned off a few weeks ago for the AIDS charity in California. According to this description, 15,000 of these were made.

To get it, you need a code, which is inside the packaging. To redeem it, you visit DisneyMovieRewards.com. Once there, it will ask you if you are a member of Disney Online. If you are not, you need to register. Once registered, you can then enter the code. You can either use the points immediately and order the car, or save up the points to get bigger gifts. Below is an image. Check out http://carsdiecasttoys.blogspot.com/ for the full story. Update 2: There are several sellers with the Blu Ray Lightning McQueen for sale on eBay.
