Appearances Mario Kart Wii

The Jetsetter (known as the Aero Glider in Europe and Oceania) is a large kart that appears in Mario Kart Wii. The Jetsetter resembles a Le Mans Prototype racecar and the body has a similar design to the Streamliner, but has more of a rectangular shape as opposed to the Streamliner's wedge-shaped body. It features a three-pointed nose with the middle point shorter and thicker. It has blue wheels, a rear fin and a single dual exhaust port in the back.

The Jetsetter is unlocked by receiving a one star rank or better in all 150cc Retro Cups or by playing 4,500 races. It is the fastest vehicle in the game. It also has decent weight, but is actually the lightest large kart in the game. All of the Jetsetter's other stats are severely low; it is notable in that it has the worst handling, off-road, and Mini-Turbo stats in the game, while also having the same acceleration as the Wild Wing. Additionally, Funky Kong's Jetsetter has the best speed stat in the game.

The Sprinter (its rough equivalent in middle-sized vehicles) is also very similar to the Jetsetter in shape, though the Sprinter is more clearly modeled on Formula 1 racecars.

The Jetsetter's bike counterpart is the Spear.
