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.)

Fast Coin Farming
1: You need two Joy-Cons, two single ones are ok, you get two if you buy the Switch.
2: Select Multiplayer mode, then select 2 players.
3: Select VS Race
4: It doesnt matter which Character or Vehicle you choose, one that got Speed AND Accelerationwould be good (like Mario)
5: While setting up your Vehicles, press the + or - on each controller and make sure the settings are like this:
-- Auto Steering: ON
-- Control: Joystick (motion control will NOT work)
-- Auto Accelerate: ON
6: After setting up the Karts, the next screen takes you to race settings. Select 200cc Race at the very top, and then copy the setting below:
-- Teams: No Teams
-- Items: No Items
-- COM: No COM
-- COM Vehicles: All Vehicles
-- Courses: Choose
-- Race Count: 48 Races (this number can change, however, 48 is ideal if you will be coin farming for an hour or two)
7: After this, it is time to pick the track. Select either Mute City (last track in the Egg Cup) or Big Blue (last track in the Bell Cup) and start the race.
8: At this point, you can set both controllers down and let the game do the rest.
**Each race takes about 2 minutes & 30 seconds so you can complete a cup about every 10 minutes. I hope you enjoy this and go get yourself that Gold Glider! **
