Appearances Mario Kart Tour

The Platinum Taxi is a High-End kart in Mario Kart Tour. It was introduced in the Holiday Tour and is the signature kart of Pauline (Party Time) and Waluigi (Bus Driver). It is a platinum variant of the Yellow Taxi with gold accents, a purple windshield with blue edges, blue headlights, yellow secondary lights, a red seat, and a top sign reading "2020". Like the Yellow Taxi, it uses the Slim tires from Mario Kart 7. Unlike the Yellow Taxi, this kart increases the duration of Mini-Turbo speed boosts and the number of points earned for performing Mini-Turbos.
