The Rainbow Phoenix is an F-Zero machine piloted by Phoenix.
The Rainbow Phoenix is usually used as an undercover patrol car. It was not built by the Galactic Space Police, though--Phoenix designed and built it himself in secret. It is tuned to be a very easy machine for novice pilots to control. Since it is actually a machine from the future made with an unknown advanced technology it has the ability to win the championship easily. Because of this unfair advantage, a limiter has been installed to reduce its capabilities. The Rainbow Phoenix currently runs at only 80 percent of its potential. It is a very easy to control machine, and most of its abilities are balanced much like the Blue Falcon.
