Giovanni is the final of the five "International" racers from the second Cars game.
Cars: Mater-National Championship Edit
Giovanni first appears in the cut scene of Team Relay 1, where he introduces himself to Lightning, Mater, Luigi, and Guido. He later appears in the race itself, Stadium Race 3, Team Relay 4, and Stadium Race 4, all of which he is the fastest car. He can be unlocked as a playable character for 60000 points, and has one paint job (plus a few more on Wii/PS3 versions of the game). He also makes a cameo on a portrait in the scene where Mater is being made into a monster truck.
Giovanni is a simple red Ferrari with a small engine similar to that of Snot Rod in his trunk, and the Ferrari logo on his hood. His license plate reads "G10V4NNI".
Giovanni tends to dislike winning on short notice, and tries to tempt other cars to try harder if he passes them.
Giovanni does not have any displayed abilities, but is notable of being the fastest car in all story appearances.
- Giovanni has a strong resemblance to the Michael Schumacher Ferrari from the 2006 Cars movie.
- In the coding of the game, a leftover placeholder which according to it's codename, was for Giovanni, has been found. It appears to depict a completely different car that could be an early design of Giovanni. It's full body cannot be seen due to the "TEMP skin03" covering it.
- Giovanni is the only car to appear as an opponent in a team relay race without having appeared in any road races (although he is playable in them).
