"Idiot! Idiot!"
René Belloq[src]

The Blond Driver was a German corporal who served as the driver of the Mercedes-Benz 320 carrying Belloq, Dietrich and Toht that headed up the convoy taking the Ark of the Covenant from Tanis to Cairo. His driving skills kept the staff car ahead of the truck after Indiana Jones overtook it, but Jones finally rammed him off the road. After being yelled at by Belloq, he managed to get the car going again, but by the time they caught up to Jones at Cairo, he had hidden the truck in Omar's garage.

Behind the scenes Edit

The Blond Driver was portrayed by stuntman Rocky Taylor in Raiders of the Lost Ark. His name "Blond Driver" comes from Lawrence Kasdan's script for the film.

According to the Marvel Comics' comic book adaptation, he is a corporal.

The Blond Driver never appears in LEGO Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures. In his place is an Enemy Soldier, as all the Nazi soldiers are replaced by the enemy soldiers and enemy officers. In LEGO Indiana Jones 2: The Adventure Continues, the Blond Driver is present during The Desert Chase. However, in the Mercedes-Benz LG3000, he only carries Arnold Ernst Toht and René Emile Belloq. At the end of the chase, he crashes the car and Jones escapes. He may have been one of the main soldiers that escaped or were killed during the opening of the Ark of the Covenant.
