The 8-Bit Pipe Frame is a kart that appears in Mario Kart Tour. Like the name suggests, it is the red-colored Pipe Frame with a pixelated appearance and is classified as a tour-exclusive High-End kart. It is the signature kart of Mario (SNES). It uses pixelated versions of the Pipe Frame's tires from Super Mario Kart. Unlike the regular Pipe Frame, the color does not change for each character and Mini-Turbos last longer and yield more points when using this kart. Although the kart has a pixelated appearance, the emblem still has a modern appearance (unless the player uses either Mario (SNES) or Donkey Kong Jr. (SNES)).

The 8-Bit Pipe Frame could be unlocked during the Super Mario Kart Tour, where it was part of the first week's spotlight items, alongside Mario (SNES) and the 8-Bit Jumping Mario.

While the kart is called "8-Bit", the game it is inspired by, Super Mario Kart, is a 16-bit game.
