Italian rugby hero Marco Bortolami has just taken delivery of a new Fiat Bravo 1.4 T-Jet 150 Sport – and admits he’s converted. Twenty-seven year old Marco is one of the sport’s most successful players and at 22, became the Italian national team’s youngest-ever captain. Now the Padova-born second row plays Premiership rugby in the UK for Gloucester, and is also the team’s skipper.


Known as a tactical player and great leader, Marco clearly has a fantastic choice in cars. His busy schedule takes him regularly around the country to meetings, personal appearances and team training sessions and, at six feet five inches tall, he needs a car that not only looks good, but is comfortable to drive too.

“It’s a fantastic looking car,” says Marco. “And I was really pleased as soon as I saw it. The new Bravo has a powerful engine considering it’s only 1.4 litres and, even though it’s large and spacious inside, it’s a manageable size for driving in and around Gloucester.”

It was Marco’s dream to play rugby in England and he plans to stay with Gloucester until at least 2010. Which hopefully gives him another two years to stay ahead of the pack, behind the wheel of a Fiat.
