Dirt 3 Collector's Edition Will Set You Back $300

| 7 Apr 2011 12:15

Dirt fans with an extra 300 bucks kicking around might want to check out this ridiculous Dirt 3 Collector's Edition that comes complete with a Ken Block Gymkhana RC Car.

Designed with the philosophy of "go big or go home" in mind, the Dirt 3 Ken Block Gymkhana RC Car Bundle is very big indeed. Or at least the price tag is: $299.99 at your local GameStop, to be precise, just a shade more than the $59.99 you'll fork over for the regular edition.

And what do you get for an extra 240 bones? A Model 7309 Ken Block Gymkhana Fiesta, fully assembled, Ready-To-Race®, with TQ 2.4GHz High Output radio system with Traxxas Link, Velineon® 380 motor, VXL-3m ESC, 7.2 volt NiMH battery & charger, and ProGraphix® painted body. I don't know what any of that actually means but I'm pretty sure it translates roughly into "toy car."

Okay, it's not just a toy and as the owner of a few "collectibles" of my own, I can't poke too much fun at this thing or anyone who buys it. And it's actually not a bad price as these things go, either; the car on its own lists for as high as $385 on Amazon. So if you're a die-hard Dirt fan or a serious Ken Block nut, this might actually be a pretty sweet deal. The Dirt 3 Ken Block Gymkhana RC Car Bundle comes out on May 24 for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
