Bravado Banshee - From Pixels to Reality
I imagine that I'm not alone in my generation of kids who grew up in the late 90s and early 2000s when the PS2 and X-Box slugged it out for console supremacy. Me, I was always a PS2 fan - and a petrolhead PS2 fan at that, meaning I spent hour after hour of my formative youth hustling Nissan Skylines around far-flung race tracks on Gran Turismo. Oh, and of course, hour after hour honing my gangster talents on the Grand Theft Auto series (I still have the Vice City map committed to memory).
Which makes the above car deeply, deeply cool. Whilst petrolheads will see it as a hastily-rebodied second-gen Dodge Viper - which, to be honest, it is - wistful GTA button bashers will recognise it as a physical rendition of the Viper-esque Banshee vehicle from our pixelated past.
The car's available to win on the Rockstar Facebook page.
