Nintendo x West Coast Customs Make IRL Mario Karts

Nintendo teamed up with West Coast Customs to create two fully functional front-wheel drivereal-life Mario Karts for display at the Los Angeles Auto Show. This is Mario's classic kart here but there's a Luigi bee-mobile or whatever after the jump. Both are impressive and I'd pay upwards of $12 for the opportunity to drive one. "Why $12?" Because that's how much admission to the show costs. I'm gonna steal one and drive it home on the freeway! *slips on own banana peel, gets red-shelled by the po-po*

Hit the jump for a couple closeups and the other car, as well as a link to Autoblog's coverage with even more shots.

Thanks to Chuey "the rock n roll" midget, not to be confused with Chuey "the country & western" midget. Big little difference (they're midgets).
