Avid gamers who also double as gearheads are likely squealing with glee over the recent unveiling of the new Mercedes-Benz Mario Kart cars. Putting a trio of Mercedes in Mario Kart may not seem like a big deal to most people, even gamers. However, consider the fact that throughout the eight iterations of the series there has never been one real-world car available to race.

The three Mercedes-Benz Mario Kart cars are as follows: the 25 Silver Arrow, 300 SL Roadster and GLA. These three cars will be added to the game via a downloadable update, which also includes a new tournament, aptly named the Mercedes Cup. Should this bit of cross-promotion go well, don't be shocked if you see Princess Peach racing around Rainbow Road in a Ford F-150 or Toyota Prius.
