The Classic Dragster (also known as the Nostalgia 1 on PAL edition) is a medium-sized Kart in Mario Kart Wii. It has the appearance of a drag racing kart, as the name implies. It's one of the 3 Medium karts that don't have to be unlocked.


Its design resembles an early Formula One, or an Indy car. The body is very thin, with a few vents and a small guardrail running down the side of it. The driver's signature color determines the paint job of the Classic Dragster.
