£125,000 – price of the world’s most expensive video game

Codemasters has announced a new SKU for racer Grid 2 – and we guarantee you it’s not what you expected.

The GAME-exclusive Grid 2 Mono Edition comes with a number of extras. As well as the copy of the game it also includes a real racing helmet, race suit, boots and gloves. Oh, and a PS3. Did we mention the day at the factory of supercar manufacturer BAC? That’s included too.

Anything else? Well, there is only one copy available. Is that it? No. It also includes the BAC Mono supercar. An actual real racing car.

And it costs 125,000.

The BAC Mono is a British-made road-legal supercar constructed from carbon fibre and packing a 2.3 litre 280bhp four cylinder engine that does 0-60mph in a spine-snapping 2.8 seconds. That’s just 0.1 seconds slower than a 2006 Bugatti Veyron and 0.4 second faster than a Ferrari Enzo.

It’s no surprise that Grid 2: Mono Edition has been named by the Guinness Book of World Records as the most expensive video game currently available.

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,” BAC Mono product director Neill Briggs stated.

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.”

Grid 2 is out on May 31st.
