Mario Kart 8 To Feature Mercedes DLC

Nintendo, Twitter (translated):

Add new collaboration models of Mercedes-Benz “GLA” appeared Wii U software released today in the “Mario Kart 8”. Summer of this year, is scheduled for delivery. Please wait for further news.

I have publicly asked for Nintendo to do DLC for Mario Kart 8, but I didn’t quite mean this. The game could really benefit from a larger character roster or more tracks, which work great as downloadable content, but a Mercedes partnership is strange. Having a real car in the game is weird.
