West Coast Customs Builds Real-Life Mario Karts, ‘Tis Awesome

Pimp My Mario Kart indeed.

OK, you’ve got my attention West Coat Customs. After making me hate you for Pimp My Ride, you’ve gone and totally redeemed yourself by teaming with Nintendo to create two Mario Kart-themed go-karts to help promote Mario Kart 7. That’s just straight up awesome. Nintendo even put the tricked-out rides to good use at this year’s L.A. Auto Show. Check out this cool publicity piece on Mario Kart 7 featuring West Coast Custom’s stellar karts.

In all seriousness… I would murder to have one of those. But since that’s unlikely to happen, I guess picking up Mario Kart 7 (and a 3DS while I’m at it) will have to do.

Mario Kart 7 launches on December 4th in the US.
