The 300 SL Roadster ("SL" being short for "Super Light" in German, "Super Leicht") is a sports car manufactured during the 1950s by Mercedes-Benz that appears as a downloadable kart body in the Mercedes-Benz × Mario Kart 8 downloadable content pack available for Mario Kart 8. The emblem is located on the doors. Its stats are identical to the Standard Kart, Prancer, Sneeker, Cat Cruiser, The Duke, and the Teddy Buggy, meaning that this kart has no effect on the driver's stats. Because most vehicles had their stats adjusted in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, the 300 SL Roadster only shares its stats with the Standard Kart and The Duke in that game.

Despite having only one exhaust pipe, the kart has a surprisingly powerful engine sound, likely to reflect its real-life counterpart, and has a Mercedes-Benz M198 engine, with up to 3 liters, a SOHC (single overhead camshaft) I-6 that makes up to 220-240 BHP (brake horsepower) and can hit a top speed of 236 km/h (146 mph), and an acceleration time of 9.3 seconds. Its engine sound is a less extreme version of the Badwagon, with a low-pitched roar when boosted.

In Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, it is unlocked randomly by collecting coins.
