Mario Kart series[edit]

Mario Kart: Double Dash!![edit]

In Mario Kart: Double Dash!!, it is Wario's kart of choice and can fit two people. In the manual for Double Dash!! it was mentioned that his car's top speed was 450 km/h (280 mph.). However, for the Mario Kart Grand Prix, its engine had been turned down.

The Wario Car is a heavyweight kart, which means it's tough and speedy. However, in comparison with the other heavyweight karts, the Wario Car is rather light; its weight is tied with the Turbo Birdo and the Parade Kart.

In terms of its actual stats, the Wario Car's top speed is only tied with the Green Fire and Parade Kart, despite of its four star speed stat. It also has the slowest acceleration of all the two star acceleration karts.

Unlike Wario Land 4, the Wario Car in Mario Kart Double Dash!! does not have a windshield.

Mario Kart DS[edit]

In Mario Kart DS, Wario has a new jalopy named the Brute. The appearance of this new car resembles the Wario Car. However, it is black instead of purple, has a white checkered pattern in front as opposed to Wario's trademark mustache, and has regular black-wall tires instead of white-wall tires.

Mario Kart Arcade GP[edit]

In Mario Kart Arcade GP, the Wario Car makes an appearance as one of Wario's special items. It is functionally identical to the Star, but it also grants the cosmetic change of turning Wario's kart into the Wario Car temporarily. The Wario Car reverts back to a standard kart after the item's effects wear off. A variant of the item known as the Wario Car+ exists. This variant extends the duration of the invincibility.

In Mario Kart Arcade GP 2, Wario receives a special kart, which is the Wario Car. It has very high top speed and high weight, but abysmal acceleration. The aforementioned Wario Car item has been removed, as all characters now use the Star as their invincibility item.

Super Smash Bros. Brawl[edit]

In Super Smash Bros. Brawl, it is featured on a sticker that raises launch power by 47. It can only be used by Wario during the Subspace Emissary.

Mario Party 10[edit]

In Mario Party 10, a toy-like Wario Car can be seen on the southern side of Wario Board in amiibo Party. It is simply a background element.
