Grid 2 'Mono Edition' Costs £125,000, Comes WIth A Race Car (PICTURES)

The world of limited edition video games is a strange and occasionally baffling one for outsiders - but this one might just take the crown for the most ridiculous.

Codemasters has announced a limited edition version of upcoming racer Grid 2 that will cost £125,000, and be issued once.

That's one unit.

But then it does come with a supercar.

The "Mono Edition" of the game - if anyone actually takes the bait - comes with a road-legal, 170-mph BAC Mono racing car.

The British-made ultra-high performance car has a 2.3 litre, 280hp engine and can reach 60mph from standing in 2.8 seconds. It will also come in "Grid 2 Livery".

The package will also include a PS3, a racing helmet and outfit, and a day at the BAC factory to customise the car to the purchaser's specs.

And yes, despite being a clear piece of inspired but ridiculous PR-stuntery, it's available to pre-order at Game.

"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," said Neill Briggs, Project Director, BAC Mono.

Grid 2 is released on 31 May for Xbox 360 and PS3.
