Appearances Mario Kart Wii

The Classic Dragster (known as the Nostalgia 1 in the British English version) is a medium-sized kart which appears in Mario Kart Wii. It resembles a late-1930s Grand Prix racecar, particularly those produced by Mercedes-Benz. It also resembles the Cucumber from Mario Kart DS. The emblem is located on the hood and on a license plate on the rear.

This kart does not have a bike counterpart for the medium-size class, although its stats are similar to that of the Cheep Charger and the Quacker. Its engine sound is also the same as that of the Cheep Charger. It is one of four vehicles that doesn't have a counterpart, the others being the Zip Zip, Phantom, and Piranha Prowler.

A similar kart, W 25 Silver Arrow, appears in Mario Kart 8 as a downloadable kart body and part of Mercedes-Benz × Mario Kart 8 DLC.

Vehicle type:

The Classic Dragster is a rather well-balanced kart that features great acceleration with good handling, Mini-Turbo, and drifting. Its speed, weight, and off-road are around average. It is notable for being the second lightest and the second slowest medium kart in the game; having the same speed as the Wario Bike. It has the same weight as the Dolphin Dasher, while it has the same acceleration as the Bit Bike. Its handling is the same as that of the Offroader and it has the same drift as the Standard Bike S. It has the best acceleration of all the medium vehicles. If Luigi or Peach ride the Classic Dragster, its speed will tie with the Offroader. Additionally, if Peach uses the Classic Dragster, it will have the same acceleration as the Cheep Charger.
