The title of this article is from the English Super Mario Bros. Encyclopedia that reportedly sourced part of its names from the Super Mario Wiki. If a higher-priority source is found, the current reference should be removed and the title moved to the higher-priority name if applicable.

This article is about the type of Clown Car that only the player characters can use. For the Clown Car in general, see Koopa Clown Car. For Bowser Jr.'s personal Clown Car, see Junior Clown Car. For the enemy in Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars, see Remo Con.
A Remote-Controlled Clown Car and the Junior Clown Car in New Super Mario Bros. Wii

A Remote-Controlled Clown Car[1] is an item that is available for use in New Super Mario Bros. Wii and is the first Koopa Clown Car to be usable by the player. A Remote-Controlled Clown Car is a very small (just a little smaller than the Junior Clown Car) type of Koopa Clown Car that Mario, Luigi, Blue Toad, and Yellow Toad get to use. This item is used only in World 6-The Icon of a Airship from New Super Mario Bros. Wii., and even then, it is used only to fight Bowser Jr. A Remote-Controlled Clown Car highly resembles a usual Clown Car, except it has either Mario's red M, Luigi's green L, or a Blue or Yellow Mushroom logo on it depending on the player; it has a "?" symbol on it beforehand. The only known attack as of now that a Remote-Controlled Clown Car can use is a spin attack similar to that of an airborne Spin Jump and crashing into Bowser Jr. by trying to shove him into the electric rails. The player must shake the Wii Remote in order to use this attack.

In Mario Party 9, two minigames have players use vehicles very similar to Remote-Controlled Clown Cars. In Bumper Sparks, the vehicles are used to bump into Bowser Jr. to try to get him to hit the electric barrier, like in New Super Mario Bros. Wii. In Pair of Aces, they are equipped with cannons.
