CARS 2 TOYS
I just found this pretty awesome Disney Pixar Cars 2 diecast package at my local Disney Store, its called "Light Up Francesco Bernoulli vs. Shu Todoroki" It sells for $16.50 exclusively at Disney stores. Francesco and Shu measures 4 ¼ inches long. The two fierce rivals of Disney Pixar Cars 2 battle it out with this Light-Up Racing Rivals Die Cast Set featuring Japanese racer Shu Todoroki and Italian racer Francesco Bernoulli. Each car lights up for even more high octane excitement.
Francesco Bernoulli grew up in the shadow of the famous Monza race course in Italy where he and his friends would sneak onto the track and race the famous Pista di Alta Velocita bank turn. He was an instant winner on the amateur circuit and soon became an international Formula Racer champion. The ladies love Francesco's open wheels, youngsters look up to his winning spirit and fellow racers envy his speed. But Francesco's biggest fan is Francesco himself, as evidenced by his racing number. As the most famous race car in Europe, #1 Francesco is a favorite to win the World Grand Prix, which also makes him Lightning McQueen's chief rival.
- Francesco's last name, Bernoulli, is a reference to Daniel Bernoulli, a Dutch/Swiss mathematician who published ground-breaking theories on fluid dynamics and the conservation of energy. Francesco's pit crew chief is Giuseppe Motorosi.
- On Francesco's side is a logo presenting the letters FR in a design similar to the F1 logo. It is the abreviation of "Formula racer". Francesco's design seems like a typical modern Formula One design. Francesco's tires are Pasta Potenza Rotelli Tires. He is the third Italian character to appear in the film, after Guido and Luigi.
Shu Todoroki is a Le Motor Prototype racer representing Japan and bearing #7 in the World Grand Prix. Shu was raised at the base of the active Mount Asama volcano in Japan, and soon became a champion on the Suzuka Circuit. His sleek design sports a fiery red Ka-Riu dragon, which Shu borrowed from Japanese legend because he relates to the small, yet fierce nature of the dragon. His team legacy is filled with victories -- his coach, a Mazda, was the only Japanese car to ever win at Le Mans -- and Shu hopes to prove his champion-level racing on the international stage of the World Grand Prix. He is modeled as a Mazda LMP2
