Lucky Winner Receives ‘Epic’ Mario Kart Reward
A few months ago, we told you about how Nintendo partnered up with West Coast Customs to create not one, but two life-size Mario Karts to be displayed at the Los Angeles Auto Show. Well, Nintendo also teamed up with GameStop to give one of these fully functional karts away to one lucky winner as part of GameStop’s Epic Rewards Giveaways which run regularly. As you can see from the pictures after the jump, this life-size Mario Kart has a happy new owner down in Tennessee. Now our only question is, how big is his garage?
