Nintendo is adding a Mercedes Benz GLA-class SUV to Mario Kart 8 for the Wii U in Europe and North America. The DLC kart will arrive “this summer” according to Nintendo’s official Twitter account. Nintendo has not confirmed that the Mercedes Benz DLC will be gratis in the West, but the kart was previously announced for Japan on May 28th as being a free update.

The addition of the Mercedes Benz brings Mario Kart 8 closer to the anything goes credo of Sega’s Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed.
