You Can Download a Mercedes Benz in Mario Kart 8

This summer, Mercedes Benz is coming to Mario Kart 8 in Japan. No word yet whether or not the car will be available in the West.

The Mercedes Benz GLA, which a sorta hunky Mario drives in a new Japanese ad, will be available as free DLC. Info is scant, but Nintendo promises more details.

This is the first real car to ever appear in a Mario Kart game. Below, you can see more photos courtesy of Game Watch Impress:
