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".
Mario Kart series
Mario Kart Wii
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.
Mario Kart Tour
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.
