Character

"Pit stop."
Guido, Cars

Guido is a major character in the Cars franchise. Guido is a small, blue, optimistic, and fun Italian pitty. Guido’s also Luigi's best friend and business partner.

Guido's fast speed allows him to perform well as a pit crew member, and he works on Lightning McQueen's racing team to provide Lightning with new tires whenever he requires them. Guido is also the host of his own racing series, Guido Kart.

History

Background

Guido was headed to the United States on a cruise ship to pursue his dream of being on a real racing crew, when he overheard Luigi talking about Ferrari to a nearby passenger. After Luigi and Guido started talking, they quickly became best friends, and enjoyed passing the time by playing games and relaxing in the sunshine. After the lengthy voyage, the pair finally arrived in New York City, where they went sightseeing and viewed the remarkable monuments such as the Statue of Luberty, Central Park, the Chrysler Building, the Stock-Car Exchange, and Timing Belt Square. After observing Guido changing a taxi's tire in 2.5 seconds, Luigi requested that Guido would come back to Carsoli with him to work at Uncle Topolino's shop, which they would soon acquire ownership of.

Profiles and statistics

Cars

  • Bios
    • "Like his boss Luigi, Guido is an avid Ferrari racing fan who dreams of performing a real pit stop on a real race car. To better prepare himself, he practices tire changes at night on wooden practice frames he built in his garage. One of these days, he hopes to set a new world record for the fastest pit stop of all time. But until that happens, he continues his quest to further enlighten himself. Currently, Guido is reading Tire Changes for the Soul, and Four Tires, One Goal."
    • "Guido isn't just pretty fast with a tire, he's pretty creative with one too, or even ten."
    • "Guido and Luigi are the biggest Ferrari racing fan in Radiator Springs. Unfortunately, they're a long way from Italy. So when there's a race in town, Ferrari or not, they get out their team colors! This may be their only opportunity to show off their home pride."

Cars 2

  • Bios
    • "Guido, the little Italian forklift, is the backbone of Casa Della Tires. He's Luigi's assistant and best friend, and together they are the biggest Ferrari racing fans in Carburetor. A car of few English words other than "pit stop," Guido is a force to be reckoned with when he's changing tires in the pits during a race. Joining Team Lightning McQueen for the World Grand Prix, Guido will get to show off his turbo-charged, pedal-to-the-metal pit stops on the global stage... and maybe, just maybe, he'll see some Ferraris!"

Trivia

  • His name is based on the Italian phrase "Io Guido", meaning "I drive".[1]
    • The fact his voice actor shares the same name is simply a coincidence.[1]
    • He speaks mostly Italian in the movie and very little English.[1]
  • His pit stop speed is undoubtedly inspired by F1 pit stops, which are typically sub-2 second stops. This is made more evident with he and Luigi being Ferrari fans.
    • Ironically, his pit stop speed can be easily beaten by a real life F1 team (though F1 only has one lug nut)
  • Despite Cars 2 directly saying that Luigi and Guido came from Carsoli. Guido's voice actor, Guido Quaroni, said that Guido comes from Monza.[1]
