The Zucchini (known as the Gherkin in Europe and Australia) is an unlockable kart part in Mario Kart 7. It resembles a mid sixties Formula One racecar, particularly those made by Lotus. It is seen as a counterpart to the Cucumber from Mario Kart DS, and Classic Dragster from Mario Kart Wii.
The Zucchini offers a speed boost, while hindering acceleration and handling. It is tied with the B Dasher, Blue Seven, and Bruiser for having the highest speed of all kart bodies. In terms of its hidden stats, however, the Zucchini hardly has any pros outside of its speed stat, and as a result, it has the lowest stat total of all the kart bodies in the game.
