The Sports Coupe (written as Sports Coupé in Europe and Oceania) is an unlockable kart body that appears in Mario Kart 8. Unlike most other vehicles, it has three exhaust pipes. It offers a boost in speed and weight, but a decrease in acceleration and a large decrease in traction. It has identical stats to the Mach 8, Circuit Special, Gold Standard, B Dasher, and P-Wing. Like the Circuit Special, its engine sound is reminiscent to a real life racing car and is one of the vehicles in Mario Kart 8 to have a supercharged engine.

In Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, CPU Daisy, Dry Bones, and Mario can be seen occasionally riding this kart with Standard tires. Donkey Kong and King Boo are also seen using this kart occasionally, but pairs it up with the Monster tires instead. Toad and Toadette's staff ghost use the Sports Coupe body in Toad Harbor and Toad's Turnpike respectively for 200cc Time Trials.
