The optimal vehicle is one that's prepared for every contingency, be it pot holes, flashfloods, or drivers who do not give a courtesy wave when you let them merge.
— Miles "Tails" Prower, "If You Build It They Will Race"
Tails' vehicle resembles an off-terrain Jeep Wrangler with elements of an amphibious vehicle. Its main body is yellow with a brown hull-shaped undercarriage that extends over the wheels. It also has a small yellow snowplow on the front, external headlamps, what seems like missiles protruding from the front of the undercarriage, and black tires with propellers for hubcaps. Curiously, the front wheels are smaller than the rear wheels. Extending across the vehicle's hood is a layer of brown metal, and on the roof are an extra set of headlamps and a satellite dish. The rear of the vehicle is pretty hefty with a winch equipped on it and a spare tire attached. It also has a small flag pole attached to the corner of the rear.
Features and abilities
A multi-functional car, Tails' vehicle is designed to be prepared for every contingency, allowing it to handle obstacles or environments featuring pot holes, flashfloods or impolite drivers. Among its features, the vehicle is equipped with extra strong and springy shock absorbers, allowing it to jump over obstacles at high speed and cushion falls from great heights, although cushioning too high falls can cause it to bounce uncontrollably. It also possesses retractable skis for sliding across terrain and off ramps. It also comes equipped with additional tools like a first-aid kid, a shovel, and a flame extinguisher.
Originally designed by Tails and created using his extended Build-it Box, Tails sought to pit his vehicle against his teammates' cars in a race. Eight months after its creation, Tails used his vehicle in the race on Race Day, only to accidentally crash his vehicle when one of its features backfired. However, Sonic salvaged it and his friends' cars for parts that Team Sonic used to make a new car which Sonic won the race with.
While using his rebuilt vehicle to drag Knuckles around on the echidna's Hoverboard, Tails would participate in a friendly car race against Sonic and his Sonic Speedster (not realizing that Knuckles was taking a beating along the way) until Sonic had to handle an errand.
