    Oh ok, they are electric karts that go 40 mph tops. Imagine driving that through town, I doubt that would be legal though,

    How about whoever wins gets to choose which cart they want. Personally, I'd rather win Luigi's cart. I've always liked him better anyway.

    The collectors value of this is likely higher than the actual cost.

    Though I wouldn't mind seeing that kart in my parents garage :P

    Too big. They are not "life sized" versions of the MK karts they are larger than life.
    That said it would be too easy to fit out a normal kart to look like a MK cart.

    Edit: Bah, Just realised that Iwata is sitting in a different kart from the functioning ones. Awesome looking things.
