Famously known for the “Pimp My Ride” series, Nintendo have commissioned West Coast Customs to develop real life Mario Karts to promote the release of the upcoming Mario Kart 7. Mario and Luigi’s Bumblebee kart life size replicas were developed and showcased at the LA Auto Show. Nintendo plan to give both of these karts to two lucky Gamestop customers, although it looks like Reggie ( president and COO of Nintendo of America) in the photo above won’t want to.
They are fully functional and can be driven. View a video of the unveiling here: http://eon.businesswire.com/multimedia/eon/20111117006146/en/2484288/.
