Mach 8 is a kart body appearing in Mario Kart 8. It resembles both a jet with a turbine-shaped grille in the front and the Formula One cars of the 1950s, having a color combination reminiscent of the blue and yellow OSCA Tipo G 4500 with a more intense blue color while sporting a yellow racing stripe and tailfin. Probably because of that, it is represented in the artworks of Mario Kart 8 with Slim tires. The Mach 8 is good at speed and weight, but has below average acceleration and traction. The front and back of the body illuminate when the body goes into anti-gravity mode. The kart itself shares the same exact stats with the Sports Coupe, Circuit Special, Gold Standard, B Dasher, and P-Wing. The engine is supercharged, and it could be heard when the kart is moving.

A CPU-controlled Luigi may occasionally use this vehicle body, often paired with the Slim tires. In fact, Luigi's main artwork also depict him driving the Mach 8.
