Nintendo Builds a Real-Life Mario Kart

Nintendo recently built two of the vehicles in the game Mario Kart 7, which will launch on the 4th of December on the 3DS, the portable game system from Nintendo that displays games in 3D. The real-life replicas of the classic Mario kart and Luigi Bumble V Kart were built with the help of West Coast Customs, the auto body shop known for the MTV series "Pimp My Ride". The karts will be on display at the LA Auto Show, Nov. 18-27 at the Los Angeles Convention Center, and there is a contest for a chance to bring one home, via GameStop’s PowerUp Rewards program. To win, PowerUp members must make a purchase or trade in a game at GameStop in December.
