The Mach 8 (マッハ八) is an unlockable kart in Mario Kart 8. It resembles both a jet with a turbine-like engine in the front and the formula one cars of the 1950s, having a color combination an intense blue color while sporting a yellow racing stripe and tailfin.

A CPU-controlled Luigi may sometimes use this vehicle body, often paired with the Slim tires.
