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.
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.
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. Its weight is tied with the Dolphin Dasher.
