What do you think about a £125,000 (or $189,000 at the current exchange rates) video game? Sounds pretty crazy, right? But what if we tell you this game will also bring you a very real BAC Mono sports car ?
This special game is being offered by Codemaster and it is called of course GRID 2 : Mono Edition. Next to the car, the package will also bring you the game and a PS3 to play on it. Of course, not while driving!
The car offered with the game will be painted in a special GRID2 livery and will be equipped with a race wear for the driver.
Before you get to excited about this package you have to know that a standard BAC Mono is priced at about $130k, so you are paying for some special livery about $60k. Not the best deal, no?
In fact the new GRID:2 already entered the Guinness World Book as the most "Most Expensive Video Game Commercially Available - Special Edition."
If you are still interested, you have to know the package will be available starting May 31st, but it can already be pre-ordered.

BAC Mono is also available on the U.S. market at a price of $130k. The problem is that only 12 units made their way in here.
