The P-Wing is a kart in the Mario Kart series. It is the spiritual successor to the Wild Wing from Mario Kart Wii, considering both are speedy karts built in the shape of "exotic"-type sports cars and both have wing-themes. Its namesake is referenced by wing patterns which can be seen in the front and sides of the kart, and the power-up icon appears in the front. The emblem is located on the hood.

History[edit]

Mario Kart 8 / Mario Kart 8 Deluxe[edit]

The P-Wing first appears as a kart body in Mario Kart 8 as part of the DLC pack Animal Crossing × Mario Kart 8. When the kart enters anti-gravity, the back parts of the kart jut out over the wheels, and the power-up icon flashes gold (as in New Super Mario Bros. 2). The P-Wing has the same stats as the Mach 8, Circuit Special, Sports Coupe, Gold Standard, and B Dasher.

Its engine sound is a variation of the Circuit Special, Sports Coupe, Mach 8, and B Dasher. Also like the aforementioned karts, the P-Wing has a supercharger, which can be heard while accelerating.

In Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, it can be randomly unlocked by collecting coins. CPU Mario can be seen driving this kart body with the Blue Standard tires and Parafoil glider.

Mario Kart Tour[edit]

The P-Wing returns in Mario Kart Tour, where it is classified as a High-End kart. It uses the Blue Standard tires from Mario Kart 8 and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. As anti-gravity does not exist in the game, the back parts of the P-Wing do not extend. The P-Wing increases the duration of Mini-Turbo speed boosts and the number of points earned for performing Mini-Turbos. The Peach Tour introduced a pink variant called the Pink Wing, which is also classified as a High-End kart.

Since its introduction to the game in the Ice Tour, the P-Wing has appeared in regular pipes in each tour, including the All-Clear Pipe. However, it is not currently a part of the Daily Selects set. The table below lists the kart's other availabilities by tour.
