The Pipe-Frame is an unlockable kart body part in Mario Kart 7 and Mario Kart 8. It is a Retro Kart, and is based on the Standard Karts (and the only karts) in the first three Mario Kart games. It can be unlocked by getting a random amount of coins (anywhere from 50 to 4500) and in Mario K
art 8 it can be unlocked by getting a random amount of coins (anywhere from 50 to 900).
- In Mario Kart 8 and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, the Pipe Frame is the only vehicle body to have the exhaust pipe switch sides depending on the CC class: in 50cc, 100cc, and 150cc, the exhaust pipe is on the left while in Mirror Mode, the exhaust pipe is on the right.
