The 8-Bit Pipe Frame is a High-End kart in Mario Kart Tour. It was introduced in the Super Mario Kart Tour and is the signature kart of Mario (SNES). The kart is a red voxelized counterpart to the Pipe Frame, including the tires. Unlike the regular Pipe Frame, this kart does not change color depending on the driver. Despite the kart's overall appearance, the driver's emblem still has a modern appearance, unless the player uses either Mario (SNES) or Donkey Kong Jr. (SNES). The 8-Bit Pipe Frame increases the duration of Mini-Turbo boosts and the points earned for performing them.

While the kart is called "8-Bit", the game it pays homage to, Super Mario Kart, is a 16-bit game.
