The Karp Kart is a High-End kart in Mario Kart Tour. Introduced in the Trick Tour, it is a variant of the Mach 8 that is patterned after a koinobori. Unlike the Mach 8, it uses blue versions of the Azure Roller tires from Mario Kart 8 and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. Also unlike the Mach 8, this kart offers longer-lasting Rocket Start boosts and increases the points earned for successfully performing a Rocket Start.


The Karp Kart has not appeared in pipes and is not currently a part of the Daily Selects set. The following table shows the kart's availability by tour.
