The Circuit Special is an unlockable kart body in Mario Kart 8. The kart resembles a Formula One car, more specifically the ones seen in F-1 Race, another Nintendo game on the NES and Game Boy. It also looks similar to the Sprinter (B Dasher Mk 2 in the PAL regions and Japan) from Mario Kart Wii. In fact, its Dutch name is the Sprinter 2.0, either a reference to the B Dasher (Sprinter in Dutch), or the actual Sprinter.

It offers a speed and weight boost, but it hinders in acceleration and especially traction; it shares its stats with the Sports Coupe, Mach 8, B Dasher, and P-Wing. It shares the same sound with the Sports Coupe and is one of the few vehicles in the game to have a supercharged engine, along with the aforementioned karts.

A CPU-controlled Yoshi, Rosalina, Metal Mario, and Pink Gold Peach may occasionally use this kart body with the Standard tires.

In Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, it is now available from the start. CPU Bowser, Roy, Wario, and King Boo occasionally use this body during races with the Monster and Standard tires, respectively, while Pink Gold Peach uses it with the Sponge tires. Luigi and Lemmy also occasionally use this kart body with the Slick and Standard tires respectively. It now only shares stats with the B Dasher and the P-Wing, boosting speed and weight while lowering acceleration, handling, and traction.
