The Streamliner is a kart that appears in the Mario Kart series. It resembles a 1970's Can Am prototype, colored blue with a white stripe in the middle, equipped four large tires and two dual gray exhaust pipes at the back.
In the Mario Kart series
The Streamliner debuted in Mario Kart DS. It is one of Luigi's three signature karts, along with the Poltergust 4000 and the Standard LG, featured in the game Mario Kart DS. It is heavier then Luigi's other karts, but gets better items. As with all of Luigi's karts, the Streamliner has an excellent top speed, but poor drifting.
It shares its speed with Waluigi's Zipper, its weight with Mario's B Dasher and Donkey Kong's Standard DK and its handling with Toad's Mushmellow. It also shares its items stat with all other characters' heavier karts.
This kart can be unlocked once the player completes all cups in the 100cc Nitro Grand Prix, or the 150cc Nitro or Retro Grand Prix if the player has not completed 100cc. It can also be used by Dry Bones and R.O.B. that way, but only if they are unlocked. All characters can use this kart once all cups in the Mirror Class have been completed.
It looks similar to the Jetsetter from Mario Kart Wii and the Blue Seven from Mario Kart 7 respectively, with the only difference is that they are heavier and have different stats. The Mach 8 from Mario Kart 8 and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe can also be considered to be a successor to the Streamliner.
The Streamliner makes an appearance in Mario Kart Tour as a Super kart. The game also introduces a red variant simply named the Red Streamliner.
