The Daytripper (known as the Royal Racer in the British English version) is a medium-sized kart found in Mario Kart Wii. The vehicle resembles an old-fashioned and decorated, horse-drawn coach, with its rear tires larger than the front. Its American English name is a reference to the Beatles' song "Day Tripper", and the European Spanish name of "Sunday Driver" references the lyrics "She was a daytripper, Sunday driver yeah".

History[edit]

Mario Kart series[edit]

Mario Kart Wii[edit]

The Daytripper can be unlocked by winning the 150cc Leaf Cup or by playing 2,700 races. It features great handling along with decent weight, acceleration, off-road, and Mini-Turbo. However, its speed and drifting are rather low. It shares the same weight as the Standard Kart M and the same off-road as the Quacker. It is the slowest medium kart in the game.

The Daytripper, along with the Cheep Charger, the Classic Dragster, the Dolphin Dasher and the Honeycoupe, has a color scheme for each character. It is also the only medium kart to use Peach's version for the Mario Kart Channel, Time Trial records, and on the unlocking screen. All other medium vehicles use Mario's versions for these appearances.

Color schemes[edit]
  • Mario - Red and white body, dark yellow back.
  • Luigi - Green and white body, gray back.
  • Peach - Pink and white body, white back.
  • Daisy - Orange and white body, dark yellow back.
  • Yoshi - Light Green and white body, green back.
  • Birdo - Purple and white body, hot pink back.
  • Diddy Kong - Dark Brown and white body, brown back.
  • Bowser Jr. - Light Yellow and white body, golden yellow back.
  • Male Mii - Cadet blue and white body, golden yellow back.
  • Female Mii - White and pink body, reddish brown back.

Mario Kart Tour[edit]

The Daytripper returns in Mario Kart Tour. It appears to be equipped with the Wood tires, based on their appearance from Mario Kart 8 and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. Unlike before, the Daytripper always uses Peach's color scheme no matter what driver is using it. It is classified as a Super kart. Riding on Dash Panels gives the kart a significantly long speed boost.

The kart is named the "Daytripper" in all English versions of the game.

Super Smash Bros. for Wii U[edit]

Princess Peach's Daytripper makes a cameo appearance as a trophy in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U.

But Peach will have the last laugh as she sails past the finish line, leaving you in the dust. The Daytripper's great handling lets it breeze through even the trickiest of courses–and what it lacks in speed, it makes up for in acceleration. You may think it doesn't look like a racer.

Trivia[edit]

  • The Female Mii is the only driver to use white as the primary body color for the Daytripper, while all other characters use white as the secondary body color. However, this is due to that a medium-sized Female Mii's kart color scheme is the inverse of Peach's color scheme for all karts, except for the Super Blooper and Sprinter.
  • If Dry Bowser uses the Offroader, its off-road will surpass the Daytripper by one point.
