The Mach 8 is an unlockable kart in Mario Kart 8. It resembles both a jet with a turbine-like engine in the front and the formula one cars of the 1950s, having a color combination an intense blue color while sporting a yellow racing stripe and tailfin.

It offers good speed and weight, and bad acceleration and traction. Its stats are identical with the Sports Coupe, Circuit Special, Gold Standard, B Dasher, and P-Wing.

A CPU-controlled Luigi may sometimes use this vehicle body, often paired with the Slim tires.
