The Mach 8 is a kart body appearing in Mario Kart 8 and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. 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 poor 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.
CPU-controlled Luigi may occasionally use this vehicle body, often paired with the Slim tires. In fact, Luigi's main artwork also depicts him driving the Mach 8. In Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, CPU Yoshi is also seen occasionally using this body with the Slim tires. Breath of the Wild-style Link uses this vehicle as well but uses the Triforce Tires instead.
While the Mach 8 is a starting vehicle body in Mario Kart 8, in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, it must be unlocked by collecting coins. Its stats have also changed to slightly boosting weight and traction, while slightly lowering acceleration and handling. It shares stats with only the Sports Coupe and Inkstriker.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
Luigi's Mach 8 appears in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as an Advanced-type support spirit that takes up two support slots. When the spirit is used in certain spirit battles, the screen will never flip upside down. The spirit's puppet fighter is Luigi on the Mario Circuit stage and every fighter is under the effect of high gravity. The enemy can deal damage by simply running into the player. Other than the Spirit Board, the spirit can be obtained from Funky Kong's Shack for 1000 Spirit Points.
