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.
