This has to be one of the more weirder partnerships I’ve ever seen.. Mario and the gamg will soon be able to whip around the twirling tracks of Mario Kart 8 in a Mercedes Benz. Yep, you read that right.

Revealed some time ago, Nintendo and Mercedes have partnered together to bring a more.. Realistic looking car into Mario Kart in the form of not one, not two, but three Mercedes vehicles. When the DLC lands later this month players can choose from the 2014 GLA SUV, the 1934 W25 Silver Arrow, and the 1957 300 SL Roadster so you can be the swankiest looking racer on the track.

The free Mercedes add-on DLC is expected to land in Japan on August 27 and will kick off a brand new online competition called the Mercedes Cup that’s expected to last around four weeks.

We learned earlier this year that the Mercedes DLC will also be coming to Europe and North America, but there’s no word on a release date just yet.

You can check out the Japanese DLC trailer above.
