I've collected over 500 coins so far and the only things unlocked from those were new kart customizations. I have also beaten every Grand Prix in 50cc with 3 stars (first time, no less!) but nothing got unlocked there.

There are some regular characters missing from the line-up (like my favourite, Wario) so I assume more can be unlocked at some point. How do you achieve this?

Excellent! I was about to post an answer myself after researching. I did the 150cc Flower Cup and did indeed unlock Wario. – DisgruntledGoat Dec 6 '11 at 12:57
