Special Edition of GRID 2 Comes With Real Supercar
GRID 2 developer Codemasters announced today what could be the most expensive video game special edition ever in GRID 2: Mono Edition.
Coming in at £125,000 (or around $189,000), GRID 2: Mono Edition includes a BAC Mono decked in exclusive livery inspired by the game. The British manufactured supercar is a one-seater with a high-strength carbon fibre, Formula 3 specification six-speed transmission and features a 2.3 liter four-cylinder pounding out 280 bhp. This equates to a car reaching 0-60 mph of 2.8 seconds and a top speed speed of 170 mph. Before getting keys to the street legal race car, purchasers will spend a day touring BAC' factory and customizing their vehicle to personal specifications.
Being exclusive, this package will be for one customer and one customer only.
Project Director for BAC Mono Neill Briggs feels that the unique feel of the Mono matches Codemaster's critically and commercially acclaimed racing series.
"BAC is immensely proud and excited at the release of GRID 2: Mono Edition; a game which offers an opportunity for one lucky person to own a truly unique supercar," says Briggs. "Codemasters has developed a stunning game which focuses on delivering the ultimate driving experience and Mono is the ultimate expression of this, in both the real and virtual worlds."
Also making the special edition package is a copy of GRID 2, a racing suit, Bell Racing helmet and a Playstation 3. Codemasters' special edition for the racing sequel has been shortlisted into the next Guinness World Records Gamer's Edition for most expensive video game ever.
