How to Get Gold Car Parts in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe allows players to unlock gold coins for their cars with some stipulations on how to get each one. Here we explain how to get every Gold vehicle part in MK8.

The hype for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe has renewed once again with the Booster Course Pass DLC injecting dozens of classic tracks to the Nintendo Switch port. As players race through the tracks, they will slowly begin to unlock vehicle customization options.

These come in the form of gliders, tires, and different body styles, each having their influence on the overall stats your vehicle takes with it in a race.

Special unlocks can also be obtained in the form of three golden vehicle parts with simple prerequisites to obtain.

To unlock the Gold Standard kart, you will need to win all Grand Prix Cups in 150cc and mirror mode with at least one star.
