The Special Cup is a Cup in Mario Kart Wii. It is one of the unlockable cups. The Special Cup, along with the Star Cup, is one of the only unlockable cups that have new courses that only appear in Mario Kart Wii. Out of all cups that have new courses, the Special Cup's courses are the longest and most difficult. That is because it is the last cup to be unlocked that has new courses. The Special Cup's emblem is a crown with a smile. That makes it more unusual, since it has an emblem not based on items from Mario Kart series. The Leaf Cup also has such. To unlock the Special Cup, you must win the Star Cup. To unlock the Star Cup, win the Mushroom Cup and Flower Cup.
