Don’t kick the tires
Ever wanted your very own life-sized Mario Kart? Or at least a replica that appeared in a TV spot? Your chance is now on that dream market called eBay!
A Luigi Bumblebee Kart is currently listed for bidding, starting at $1,000 and closing shortly before 5 p.m. PDT on 10th August. Of course, if you want to forgo the excitement of auctions, you can Buy It Now for $8,000.
The kart was given as the grand prize in a 2011 Disney sweepstakes, along with a 3DS and a copy of Mario Kart 7 (neither included with this auction). According to the seller, the kart seemed like it had an engine at one time, but was not delivered with one. That didn’t seem to deter her daughter’s enjoyment of it much, and it had to serve as quite the front yard centerpiece for some time.
Would you want this karting keepsake in your home? Let us know in the comments, and good luck if you choose to bid (but if you have that much money to spend, you probably don’t need any)!
