|“||One speedy ride! But... steering can be tough.”|
|— Flavor Text • Kirby Air Ride|
The Turbo Star is a red machine with white portions at the front of each of its three parts. It has a hood scoop and two boosters floating near its sides with the word "Turbo" written on them. Its design recalls that of a modern sports car.
The Turbo Star excels at top speed, but has below average handling due to its weak turning capabilities, middling acceleration, and the lowest charging speed from a stop. However, if it has enough momentum, it can drift superbly (much like a real-world car), and can charge much more quickly as it does so.
|“||The Turbo Star's acceleration and top speed are very advanced, but it has a unique control style that takes some getting used to.”|
