Rockstar creates real-world GTAV sports car

Described as the “ultimate American sports car”, the Bravado Banshee had a starring role in the opening moments of Grand Theft Auto III. It’s now an in-game vehicle in Grand Theft Auto V, but if that’s not enough for you, Rockstar Games has created a stunning, real-world version of the car and is giving it away to one lucky fan.

That’s the way the car looks in GTAV. It’s one of the “most sought after” high-performance cars from Liberty City to Los Santos – and it looks like it’ll be just as eye-catching in the real world, too. A team from Rockstar used state-of-the-art fabrication techniques to mould, cut and machine each piece of the base vehicle – the car now features an entirely new exterior to match the in-game version perfectly.

The interior’s had a makeover as well, handcrafted and stitched to line up with the pixelated version. The Banshee name and insignia have been specifically embroidered onto the seats, the centre console, door panels and dashboard have all been reconfigured (and finished with carbon inlays), and a brand new multi-speaker sound system has been installed.

The result? A one-of-a-kind supercar, truly worthy of representing Banshee on the roads. Plus, it’s also a nice nod to the in-game customisation options available in GTAV, which will see you able to give your virtual car the same sort of revamp.

If you want to win this, I’m afraid you’ll have to live in the U.S. – it’s a prize as part of a GameStop competition, but if you tick all the boxes, we wish you the best of luck!
