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 appeared as a DLC 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, Larry, and Bowser Jr. 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 increases the speed boosts and points earned for performing Mini-Turbos. It also 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. A pink variant called the Pink Wing, which is also classified as a High-End kart, appears in the game starting with the Peach Tour.
