Appears in Mario Kart Tour

The Comet Tail is a High-End kart in Mario Kart Tour. Introduced in the Vancouver Tour, it is the signature kart of Rosalina (Aurora). The Comet Tail is a comet-themed vehicle resembling the Lotus 49 with small star designs on it resembling the design and color scheme of Rosalina (Aurora)'s dress. It uses the Blue Standard tires from Mario Kart 8 and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. The emblem is located on the hood and on the back of a six-cylinder engine between the exhaust pipes. The Comet Tail increases Dash Panel boost duration and the number of points earned for using Dash Panels.

The Comet Tail has four variants that all debut in the 2023 Mii Tour: the Red Comet, the Pink Comet, the Green Comet, and the Gold Comet. All four are also classified as High-End karts.
