Nintendo will deliver a life-size Mario Kart™ vehicle to a Clarksville, Tenn., resident as the lucky winner of the GameStop® Epic Reward Giveaway™. Nintendo will present him with the keys to the fully functioning kart.
To celebrate the recent launch of the Mario Kart™ 7 game for the portable Nintendo 3DS™ system, Nintendo teamed up with West Coast Customs to create life-size models of two karts from the game – one for Mario™ and one for Luigi™ – and unveiled them at the 2011 LA Auto Show. A recent episode of Inside West Coast Customs on the Velocity Network showed how West Coast Customs and Nintendo worked together to make these video game vehicles a reality. Members of the GameStop PowerUp Rewards™ program had the opportunity to claim Mario’s kart as part of the monthly Epic Reward Giveaway. The kart comes complete with a decorative glider wing, as represented in the game. The Luigi Bumble V Kart resides at Nintendo of America’s headquarters in Redmond, Wash.
Winner Nate Stehley of Clarksville, Tenn.; David Young, Nintendo of America’s assistant manager of Public Relations; Rob Henderson, GameStop PowerUp Rewards Program Manager
