Nintendo recently tapped well-known automotive phenomenon West Coast Customs to create life-size models of two signature Mario Karts from the upcoming Mario Kart 7 video game for the Nintendo 3DS system. Selecting two prominent fixtures from the forthcoming video game, West Coast Customs was commissioned to bring to life both the Mario and Luigi models. The two fully functioning electronic vehicles were revealed today at the Los Angeles Auto Show, where attendees were also given the chance to sample the Mario Kart 7 game prior to its official December 4 release date. In addition to the auto show preview, an episode of the 2012 Inside West Coast Customs television series will highlight the collaborative process between West Coast Customs and Nintendo.
