There are 36 karts in total in Mario Kart DS - three karts per character. At the beginning there are only two karts available per racer but as you unlock more parts of the game, you can select from more karts. If you win a gold trophy in all grand prix in all classes (including 150cc Mirror Mode) you can select from all 36 karts with any racer.

Each character has a 'standard' kart, which is just a classic Super Mario Kart style vehicle; a secondary kart which, is based on that character in some way; and a secret unlockable kart which is a usually a novelty type vehicle also based on that particular character.
