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 based on the Pipe Frame, but with a voxelized appearance, including the tires. Unlike the regular Pipe Frame, this kart only has a red color regardless of 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 extends the duration of Mini-Turbo speed boosts and increases the points earned for performing Mini-Turbos.

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

A yellow variant named the Yellow 8-Bit Pipe Frame makes its debut in the Mii Tour. Like the 8-Bit Pipe Frame, it is also classified as a High-End kart.
