Luigi is an Italian tire salesman, who lives in Radiator Springs, managing his very own shop with his assistant, Guido.
Luigi runs the local tire shop in Radiator Springs, Luigi's Casa Della Tires. If you're gonna be driving through this world, why not look good doing it? That's Luigi's motto. Cars may not get to choose their body type, but they all have a choice when it comes to the tires they wear. Luigi offers the finest selection of tires west of the Mississippi, and Luigi's Casa Della Tires is known far and wide for its impeccable service, competitive prices, and of course, its very stylish proprietor.
In Cars, Luigi is unhappy with Lightning at first, as he is only a Piston Cup racer, and not a Ferrari. However, Luigi begins to like him after a while, like the other townsfolk do, and joins Lightning's crew at the Los Angeles International Speedway.
In Cars: The Video Game, Luigi stars in his own mini-game, Luigi to the Rescue, in which the player controls him as he sets out to find all of the missing tires and return them to the shop within the given time limit. Despite being playable in story mode, he is not controllable in road races and other events in arcade mode, though he will occasionally appear as an opponent.
