Appearances Mario Kart Wii

The Classic Dragster (known as the Nostalgia 1 in the PAL release) 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, making it the only default vehicle in the game to not have a counterpart in its class. However, 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.

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.
