You maybe looking for Whirlwind.

The Whirlwind S7[1] is Tails' signature racing car. In Japanese, it is known as MTP-01 Wheelwind (MTP-01ホイルーウインド?) in Sonic Drift and MTP-02 Wheelwind S7 (MTP-2ホイルーウインドS7?) in Sonic Drift 2.


The Whirlwind S7 is a yellow and white race car. In Sonic Drift, it is similar to a F1 car circa 1960-70. Its exhausts are perched under the spoiler, not on the back bumper, and it has a white front panel.

Game appearances

Sonic Drift

The Whirlwind S7 first appears in Sonic Drift, where it has been being called as MTP-01 Wheelwind.[2] It is good to control in cornering, but has otherwise low max speed. For Special Power, Tails uses a flying leap to dash forward. The special power has rather the same effect as Jump Springs.

Sonic the Hedgehog's Gameworld

The Whirlwind S7 along with other three characters' vehicles from Sonic Drift are being used in "Car Race" minigame in Sonic the Hedgehog's Gameworld, as the Whirlwind S7 is Tails' racing car. The player has to race around the circular track at one-lap kart race.

Sonic Drift 2

Tails' racing car is once again seen in Sonic Drift 2, where it has been renamed as MTP-02 Wheelwind S7 in the game's Japanese version.[3] In this game, Tails and his racing car is all-round racer without any strengths or weaknesses and like in Sonic Drift, his Special Power is a flying leap. It can be also done in turns.

Tails and his racing vehicle in Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed.

  • In Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed, Tails is using a similar looking racing vehicle. Like other vehicles in the game, it has ability to transform into plane and boat. Not much else is known about the Tails's racing vehicle or whatever it is potentially another upgrade of Whirlwind S7.
  • There's possibility that Whirlwind S7 may have been loosely based on the sport car, that Tails has in one of hidden pictures of Sonic the Hedgehog CD after activating code for Debug Mode. The sport car itself is in fact from Sonic the Hedgehog serialized manga series published by Shogakukan, where it is owned by Tails.
  • Whirlwind S7's overall design has a similarity to Carterham 7.
