‘Pimp My Mario Kart’ Builds Life-Size Mario and Luigi Karts [PHOTOS, VIDEO]
If you’ve ever wanted to own one of the cars in the video game Mario Kart, now’s your chance.
Nintendo and auto body shop West Coast Customs, known for its work in the MTV series ‘Pimp My Ride,’ collaborated to build two of the vehicles in Mario Kart 7, which launches on December 4 for the Nintendo 3DS game system.
The real-life replicas of the classic Mario Kart and Luigi Bumble V Kart will be on display through November 27 at the LA Auto Show at the Los Angeles Convention Center, and the process of building them will be profiled early next year on an episode of ‘Inside West Coast Customs.’
Want to bring one of the cars home? Retailer GameStop can make that a reality — members of its PowerUp Rewards program who make a purchase or trade in a game at a GameStop store in December will qualify to win.
