The Landship is an unlockable kart body that appears in Mario Kart 8. It is a small kart similar in shape of Bowser's Airships in Super Mario Bros. 3. It grants the player a large acceleration boost, and a slight handling boost, at the expense of speed, weight, and traction. It shares its stats with the Biddybuggy and Mr. Scooty. It changes color for all the Koopalings, with the back cabin and cannon covers matching their airships from New Super Mario Bros. U and the seat matching their shell colors. All the other characters have a similar color scheme to Bowser's airship from the New Super Mario Bros. games.
The Landship is one of the vehicle bodies that a CPU-controlled Bowser or Koopaling will occasionally use, combined with Wood tires. In Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, CPU-controlled Bowser Jr. also occasionally pairs the Wood tires with the Landship, while Bowser now pairs the Landship with the Bowser Kite as well. While the Landship's ground speed, anti-gravity speed, and traction have improved, its air speed, acceleration, ground handling, air handling, anti-gravity handling, and mini-turbo are all weaker than before.
