Luigi (designed to look similar to a 1959 FIAT 500)
Luigi is a big-hearted Italian Fiat 500. A tire virtuoso and owner of Luigi’s Casa Della Tires, he and sidekick Guido join Lightning and Mater on Team Lightning McQueen for the World Grand Prix. Luigi, a fanatic for all things Italian, is particularly enchanted with Ferrari race cars. When the competition takes the team to his hometown of Porto Corsa, Italy, Luigi’s family welcomes the gang from Radiator Springs in a big, passionate Italian way: Amore!
In the small village of Santa Ruotina, near Porto Corsa, Italy, Luigi’s favorite uncle, Uncle Topolino, resides with his beloved wife, Mama Topolino. Uncle Topolino is the owner of the village’s tire shop, where he taught Luigi and Guido everything they know, though Uncle Topolino is full of sage advice about more than just tires.
To all who know her, Luigi’s aunt, Mama Topolino, is a masterful cook with the best fuel in the village of Santa Ruotina, near Porto Corsa, Italy. Though she has a loving, but fiery relationship with her husband, Uncle Topolino, she shows her love and generosity for both family and friends by feeding everyone her renowned delizioso fuel.
