Ally of Chick Hicks
Cars: Mater-National Championship Edit
El Machismo is not actually in the game, but was added to the game as a playable character via modding.
Cars: Race-O-Rama Edit
El Machismo first appears in the end scene for Sprint 1 behind Chick Hicks. He later appears in Match Up. In the cut scene, Chick Hicks introduces him to Lightning and Sarge. In the end scene, he gets very angry at Chick Hicks about losing, and that he wants bigger everything. He also appears in Point to Point 5 and Reunion Rundown. In the end scene for Chick Hicks Showdown, he apologizes to Lightning for how he behaved on the track, and that he is badder than bad and faster than fast. He will be unlocked as a playable character once Match Up is beaten.
El Machismo is blue with an orange checker design and the number 13.
El Machismo acts very tough and confident, and refers to himself as "bigger than big!" and "badder than bad!".
El Machismo doesn't have any notable special abilities, other than a smoke screen he uses to block the player's view. His appearance and personality could suggest he is one of the strongest cars in the series, and has one of the highest levels of off-road performance.
- El Machismo is the fourth character in the Cars franchise whose original actor died, preceded by Red, Fillmore, and Doc.

- El Machismo and Emma are both numbered 13, making them (along with Otto and Barry with 8, and Doc and Aikens with 51) the only characters to have the same number.
- El Machismo is the only character to have a MotorCo. Sponsor.
