Last week's Mario Kart artwork — Mario Kartwork, if you will — has been quickly overtaken by this new set of pictures showing Donkey Kong, Princess Peach and Mario all enjoying their brand new rides.

Peach's regal mobile looks fine and dandy with its tiny wheels, while DK and Mario have both decked out their rides with some huge tyres, which will help give them an advantage when travelling off-road. The fireball Mario's getting ready to chuck will probably be pretty useful too, though DK's spiny blue shell will likely trump it.

Mario Kart 7 is released in early December. Expect more information about its wireless multiplayer this Friday when Nintendo holds a 3DS press conference.
