Viper-Based Bravado Banshee is Your Real-Life taste of Grand Theft Auto; $170k on eBay

You don’t have to be a Grand Theft Auto (GTA) fan to like the Bravado Banshee, a virtual, made-up model that is a kind of Viper-spoof for you make quick getaways in. At least not when it comes to this actual recreation of that car, made in real life using the underpinnings of a 2006 Dodge Viper SRT-10.

The car “was created by Rockstar Games (in 2013) with modifications by West Coast Customs,” as part of the promo campaign for the (then upcoming) GTA V game.

It features the an all-new body, but the same engine as the Viper and its interior, so you know what you’re getting yourself into by paying the buy-it-now price for which it’s advertised on eBay.

Check it out in the gallery below – if you haven’t seen it before but have played the game, you’ll immediately find it familiar.
