  • 12-4 - Added information regarding Gold Wheels (reward for 1-Star in every GP)
  • Not related, but I added a video showing every new track from MK7!
  • 11-29 - All 3-Star Ranks Acquired! Nothing unlocked...(aside from stars next to your name)

Note: It's been suggested that the parts you unlock are random. As I'm unable to verify this (since I only have one copy of the game and don't feel like deleting my file), I will continue to list the parts in the order I unlock them. However, do note that while the coin amounts remain the same, you may unlock the parts in a different order than I have.

We've been working our way through Mario Kart 7 and have been unlocking a ton of secrets along the way. Here's everything we've discovered so far, and we'll keep updating the list as we find more. If you're unfamiliar with the game, you can collect coins during races which will eventually unlock car parts, such as the vehicle body, tires, and glider that you can use to improve your ride.

Note: There are some unlockables that we can't yet talk about.

Oh, and when you're done, make sure to check out our Track Impressions and notes on what changed with the Retro Tracks.

I haven't fully understood when these change, but I've noticed the title screen changes after finishing a circuit sometimes. Here's what I've found so far:
  • Yoshi in the B Dasher kart
  • Donkey Kong standing on the Bolt Buggy holding a Blue Shell
  • Peach flying through the air in the Birthday Girl kart.
  • Mario driving underwater.
  • Mario gliding.
