Nintendo had also announced on that day that the real-life Mario Kart would be given away to one lucky winner of GameStop's Epic Reward Giveaway contest, and now the winner has been chosen and revealed to be Nathanial Stehley, 27, of Clarksville, Tennessee.
Mario and a few representatives from Nintendo and GameStop arrived at Nathanial's home on Feb 28th to deliver the kart (which is fully driveable, by the way). It's definitely one cool prize to win, as I imagine it cost quite a bit to make a custom kart like that.
Now all we need is about seven more of those and we can finally hold a real-life Mario Kart tournament; someone get West Coast Customs on the phone right now!
