Nintendo at the LA Autoshow
Ever wanted to see a real-life kart from Nintendo’s hit Mario Kart series
outside of the Mushroom Kingdom? Nintendo has teamed up with West Coast
Customs to create life-size models of two karts – one for Mario and one for
Luigi – from the upcoming Mario Kart 7 for Nintendo 3DS. These unique
electric vehicles were unveiled at the LA Auto Show, where they will be on
display Nov. 18-27 in the lobby of the West Hall of the Los Angeles
Convention Center. Visitors attending the show will be able to take photos of
the karts, sample the Mario Kart 7 game before its Dec. 4 launch and
participate in multiplayer game play.
Additionally, members of the GameStop® PowerUp Rewards™ program will have
the opportunity to claim the Mario Kart as his or her own as part of the
monthly Epic Reward Giveaway™ program. To be eligible for an Epic Reward
Giveaway entry, members must make a purchase or trade at their local
GameStop or on GameStop.com during the month of December. PowerUp
Rewards Pro™ Members automatically get two entries with purchase. The lucky
winner will be announced in February; for more information, visit

Network. The company has re-created two vehicles from Mario Kart 7: the

through the air, and the Luigi Bumble B kart, which resembles a bumblebee and
features a rear propeller for underwater navigation.
“Mario karts offer more fun per mile than any other vehicle,” said Nintendo of
America President Reggie Fils-Aime. “Mario Kart 7 is a perfect example of the
many great games Nintendo has lined up for the holidays.”
“We’ve played Mario Kart games for years, so it’s a dream come true to bring
these karts to life,” said West Coast Customs CEO Ryan Friedlinghaus. “We
think people will be blown away by seeing these cool video game vehicles in
In early 2012, an episode of Inside West Coast Customs will show how West
Coast Customs and Nintendo worked together to make these video game
vehicles a reality.
