GameStop Rewards members can use their PowerUp points to enter for a chance to win a custom Banshee sports car.
Grand Theft Auto is a game that naturally deals with a lot of cars. Most are pretty average, while others are rust buckets you’d only grab because the fuzz is on your tail and you need a set of wheels. Standing on the tip-top of GTA’s fictional auto heap however, is probably the Banshee. Slick, shiny and fast, it’s one of those cars you never pass up when the opportunity to snag one arises. Now, Rockstar and GameStop have teamed up to give away a real world version of the Banshee, and you won’t even have to shoot anyone to get it.
Built by West Coast Customs at Rockstar’s request, the real world Banshee is a one of a kind vehicle based off of the virtual version featured in the soon to be released Grand Theft Auto V. The Banshee was made “utilizing state-of-the-art fabrication technologies” to be an “accurate reproduction of the Banshee” from the game.” The car’s interior “was handcrafted and stitched to capture the look and feel of its detailed cockpit, with seats upholstered and embroidered with the Banshee name and insignia.” Gamers interested in a chance to win the Banshee can head over to the GameStop’s PowerUp Rewards site where it’s being featured as an Epic Giveaway item.
All in all, we’ll rank this is as one of the coolest items we’ve seen a developer give away to help promote its game. That being the case, we’d love to see more like this in the future. For instance, a custom version of the Grand Theft Auto tank would be another vehicle we wouldn’t mind parking in our driveway. We imagine the neighbors would stop nagging us to mow our lawn after that.
