Unlockable Racers

In Grand Prix mode, get first place on any Cup in any engine class and you will be given one of 13 additional characters at random - however you can not repeat the same cup with the same engine class to earn more characters.</ p> The one exception to the above rule is the Mii character, the 14th unlockable character. He will be unlocked when you obtain first place in every Cup of a single engine class.

Unlocking Vehicle Parts

Vehicle parts are unlocked at random every time you get 50 coins. Once you reach 1000 coins total kart parts are unlocked every 100 coins. The only exceptions to this rule are the gold parts. You need to collect a grand total of 2,800 coins to unlock all non-gold parts. You can get coins during a race, but only the coins you have when you finish a race (max of 10 coins per race) will be added to your total. (If you play local multiplayer, all coins held by all players at the end of a race will be added to your total, allowing you to potentially get up to 40 coins per race if you have four players.)
