The Iconic Mario Kart
Everybody knows who Mario is. There’s a good chance you’re even more familiar with his outings outside of jumping on bad guys and travelling down pipes. Mario has Tennis, Golf, Karting, Olympic and many other spin off games but Mario Kart is by far the most beloved and well known. West Coasts Customs teamed up with Nintendo for the release of Mario Kart 7 to team up to create the real mario kart. It runs on an electric motor and is fully functional. You can also attach the glider to it, but we wouldn’t recommend going off any jumps in it.
While there is no real-life version of the game “Mario Kart” that features real-life characters racing go-karts, there are go-kart racing experiences and events that are often referred to as “real-life Mario Kart.”
These experiences typically involve racing go-karts on specially-designed tracks that include elements inspired by the game, such as power-ups, boost pads, and obstacles. Participants may dress up in costumes inspired by characters from the game, and some events may include special effects such as fog machines and music.
It is important to note that these events are not officially licensed by Nintendo, the company that created the “Mario Kart” game. While they may be inspired by the game and feature similar elements, they are not officially endorsed or affiliated with the game.
Additionally, it is important to follow all safety guidelines and precautions when participating in go-kart racing, as these activities can be dangerous if not done properly.

The Twin Mill
Anyone who grew up playing with the iconic hot wheels cars as a kid might just remember this one. Potentially one of the coolest cars in the entire line up. The two big engine blocks with hood scoops made this an imposing car that sparked the imagination of many young petrol heads. Well somebody decided that for the 30 year anniversary they’d team up with hotrods and create a real life version. Two big 502 blocks, with hood scoops puts this insane car at 1,400hp. Also note that this car is deafeningly loud. Probably more of a collector piece rather than an actual every day driver, especially with the cost of fuel needed to keep this car running.

The Mystery Machine
Scooby-doo has many fans and there are many replica mystery machines floating about. However the closest replica belongs to Micheal Yates. This truck has been completely recreated from a Volkswagen LT40. Many younger fans will look onto this fondly despite the new series stirring up a bit of controversy. It’s a timeless classic that will no doubt be a great conversation piece.

Anyone who is an Xbox or Halo fan will be familiar with the futuristic war vehicle, affectionately named the warthog. Well the creators of the Halo series wanted more hype for their fourth entry with Halo 4. And so the real replica of the Warthog was created. The backseat turret is just for show, it is none functional. Sorry to disappoint you!
