    I thought it was fake but they have advertisements for it on the Japanese Mercedes-Benz website so, it's most likely real. (here is the page)



    Also, this could mean more characters/tracks/battlemode courses to be added in the future (hopefully). Also, it's free.

    LOL i actually think this looks awsome.

    [Edit] I was reading the comments on the source and one poster pointed out something that i would like to repeat here. He was saying that he hopes having this car included doesnt have overpowered stats because it would ruin the balance of the game online with everyone using it. If it has normal fair stats that dont make it overpowered then im totally fine with this, i actually like it alot.

    Good idea, people are gonna see Mercedez vehicles in MK8 and have to go out and buy one! Great advertising!
    I kind of wish any DLC vehicles would be like, in-universe vehicles. Not real world brands. :unsure:

    With the amount of butt-frustration it's sure to raise, it might well just give people the Benz.

    If i were to guess, it's probably going to be the same, or similar, stats as the standard kart. Also, it doesn't look customizable to me, so maybe it's same stats as standard but with slightly increased off-road and/or weight.

    From what I've heard the DLC is Japan only. Hopefully it does get a western release because it looks funny as hell.

    I'm pretty much neutral to the car being DLC and advertising. At least it's free.

    Finally DLC, excellent.
    Very weird promoted DLC though, not what I expected -_-. Nintendo being a sell-out, bit stupid/pathetic to do this for one of your biggest games
