The lights are on
In celebration of GTA V's upcoming release, Rockstar Games
has teamed up with West Coast Customs to recreate one of the series' most prized
sports cars. Find out how you can win it.
The Bravado Banshee originally appeared in GTA III, and was based
on the Dodge Viper RT/10. The coveted sports car has evolved into its own beast
in subsequent installments of the series, and Rockstar decided that GTA V's rendition
was worthy of a real-life version. Both the exterior and interior have been
crafted to match the in-game model of GTA V's Banshee, down to the custom seats
embroidered with the Banshee name and insignia.

GTA fans have a chance to win the car through GameStop's Epic
Reward Giveaway, and can use their PowerUp Rewards points to enter the
drawing multiple times. The contest ends September 30. Learn more about the car
and see more pictures at Rockstar's
GTA V releases on September 17 on PlayStation 3 and Xbox
360. For information on how you can pimp out your in-game cars, read our GTA
V Customization Q&A.

Our TakeFrom unveiling the
box art via a Manhattan
mural to real-life sports cars, Rockstar is pulling out all the stops to
celebrate the latest installment of the Grand Theft Auto series. Frankly, I
wouldn't expect anything less from the developer. I fully expect two more weeks
of hoopla leading up to GTA V's release, after which I'll likely be too busy
playing the game to notice any post-release shenanigans.

This was my legitimate thought process:
*glances before changing to another tab, brain processes "Half-Life", gets really excited, changes tab back"....oh.
All i get is an error page from your link to gamestop.
I think the Banshee was also in GTA 1... Correct me if I'm wrong, it has been a LONG time since I've played it. Maybe it's just that it wasn't named until 3. I forget the details, either way that is one sexy car.
Win it? To hell with that. The name of the game is GTA so yea.
i want that car, and then i would sell it...
To quote The Lonely Island: "And now I *** in my pants..."
If I won it I would sell it.
I knew i was right to get the collector's edition! There could be no other game thats a better send off to this gen. This just soilifys that fact! Also. I hope I win! Lol. I would never give up such a one of a kind vehicle away. You guys are not true fans.
It looks like a combination of a Rx-7 and a Viper.
