The Sprinter (known as the B Dasher Mk 2 in the British English and Japanese versions) is a medium-sized kart that appears in Mario Kart Wii. Its appearance is based on a modern Formula One car (Mario's color scheme in particular resembling the McLaren MP4/4) and is the successor of the B Dasher from Mario Kart DS. The kart can be unlocked by unlocking 24 expert staff ghosts in Time Trials, by winning 3,000 WFC races or by playing 4,650 races. Its bike counterpart is the Sneakster. The emblem is located on the two tailfins and the hood.
The Sprinter features great speed; it is the fastest medium vehicle in the game and the second fastest kart in the game after the Jetsetter. It is also the third fastest vehicle in the game, after the Spear and Jetsetter. Its weight, which is tied with the Shooting Star, is also manageable, and it is the second heaviest medium kart in the game, only to be behind that of the Wild Wing’s. Its drift is about average, but its other stats are rather low, and has the worst handling, off-road, and Mini-Turbo of the medium vehicles. The Sprinter's drift is tied with the Booster Seat. Its off-road ties with that of the Flame Runner. If Daisy rides the Sprinter, its speed can surpass the Spear's default speed by one point.
There is a kart in Mario Kart 8 called the Circuit Special which greatly resembles the Sprinter. The Dutch version calls it Sprinter 2.0, making it a successor to this kart and the original B Dasher, which is called Sprinter in Dutch.

"The Sprinter is one of the fastest Karts available in the game. Fast? Yes. But can it cut a corner? Not so much. Things have a way of "evening out" in Mario Kart Wii. This Kart exemplifies the pros and cons of the stat bonuses."
