The Cat Cruiser is an unlockable kart body that appears in Mario Kart 8. It is a pink body, resembling somewhat of a Volkswagen New Beetle, with cat motifs such as whiskers, a tail, and ears (embedded on the windshield). The emblem is located on the sides of the kart. Its stats are identical to the Standard Kart, The Duke, Teddy Buggy, Prancer, Sneeker and the 300 SL Roadster, which means it grants drivers no advantages or disadvantages.

This vehicle is based on Princess Peach's cat form in Super Mario 3D World. Cat Peach also appears in The Legend of Zelda × Mario Kart 8, making this her signature kart. In fact, a CPU-controlled Cat Peach will occasionally use this kart body paired with the Standard tires.

In Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, CPU Cat Peach and Toadette occasionally use this kart body paired with the Retro Off-Road tires, while Daisy uses it with the Standard tires instead. Its stats also got changed so that it now offers acceleration and handling in exchange of speed. It shares stats with the Comet, Yoshi Bike and Teddy Buggy.
