Mario Kart 8 players who also happen to be fans of fine German engineering are in for a treat: Starting Aug. 27, three Mercedes whips — the GLA, the ’50s-era 300 SL Roadster and the ’30s-era Silver Arrow — will be available as part of an update for the Nintendo Wii U title. Traditionally, Mario Kart vehicles range from go-kartesque options to more outlandish choices, like gliders.

The Mercs come alongside other new Mario Kart features meant to celebrate the twenty-second anniversary of the first Kart title, Super Mario Kart for the SNES, back in 1992 — and as an extra bonus, that original game’s now available for download on the Nintendo eShop on Wii U.
