Grid 2 gets £125,000 special edition

The UK-exclusive Grid 2: Mono Edition comes with an actual supercar.

Codemasters has announced a single £125,000 special edition of Grid 2 that comes with its own supercar.

The Grid 2: Mono Edition racing suit and custom BAC Mono supercar.

The Grid 2: Mono Edition will be available for only one customer in the UK and is being sold at Game.

Alongside the included British-made BAC Mono, which comes customised with a Grid 2 livery, the customer gets their own racing suit, boots, gloves, and Bell racing helmet. A day at the BAC factory is also thrown in, along with a PlayStation 3 console. A copy of Grid 2 on the PlayStation 3 is also included.

The road legal supercar is made from carbon fibre with a 2.3 litre, 280bhp four-cylinder engine that can go from 0-60mph in 2.8 seconds.

Codemasters says it has submitted the Grid 2: Mono Edition for inclusion in the Guinness World Records as the world's most expensive special edition.

Grid 2 will be released for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC on May 31 in the UK.

That's the wrong title really. It should be like "BAC Mono now comes with a special custom Grid 2 livery and a free copy of Grid 2."

WOOO Pre-ordered! It's surprising really. Turns out that your soul is worth exactly £125,000. The guy who sold me it looked a bit dodgy though. He was wearing horns and a red suit when it's not even halloween.

now this is a special edition. something that is actually special and unique when compared to others. Not some in game clothing and whatnot.

By the way....when you see the special edition car from the front, remember to say:

The point was to get you guys to notice the damn game... Mission success.

It's the reverse.  Buy a supercar, get a ps3 game for free.

AnimeFreaks

for the people that says "no thanks", "buy a car, get a ps3":

 1. this is not for you

2. you are missing the point

3. this is just a stunt, they offered 1 only. this really isnt going to make them much money if any at all.

4. it does have something to do with grid 2.

5. there are at least a few of us that think this is pretty cool and worth a laugh...but i wouldnt have a clue if the car is worth it.

6. i now brace myself to get bashed

For that I could buy an Audi R8 V10.  No thanks.

It's just a car with a free game, not a special edition.

maybe Call of duty ghost will include other people moms in the special edition.

Yea that doesnt strike me as a special edition. It is what Capcom did where they threw in a leather jacket with an RE game and called it a special edition. Unless the packaging of the game itself is somehow unique and inclusive of some features, just throwing a regular copy of the game with an item does not a special edition make.

If I had the money I'd buy it.....but then I say that about most things.
