Real-Life Bravado Banshee Is Looking For Another Owner, Again

You might be tempted to use the controller to drive the Bravado Banshee in Grand Theft Auto (GTA), but you can also buy the real-life model, again, for the right amount of cash.

Commissioned by Rockstar Games and built by West Coast Customs as part of a marketing campaign for the launch of the GTA V video game, it’s based on a 2006 Dodge Viper SRT-10, and it’s up for sale – again.

The ad posted on eBay by the Texas-based vendor reveals a buy-it-now price of $62,991, and states that it has only 8,193 miles (13,185 km) on the clock. For a 12-year old custom Viper, its tires have barely seen any tarmac, and that 8.3-liter V10 engine, paired to a six-speed manual transmission, still has a lot of life left in it.

Watching KITT Navigate The World Of GTA V Is Weirdly Satisfying

The Bravado Banshee was originally won by a non-gamer grandmother from Havelock, North Carolina. It was her youngest son who purchased the video game using her credit card, so she became the legal owner of the car.

Back in mid-2014, she tried selling it for $170,000 to pay for her son’s college. However, the car failed to change hands, and in a subsequent listing in early 2015, she ended up letting it go for only $45,200.

The Bravado Banshee wasn’t the moneymaker some thought it could be. And this was proved once more in August this year, when it was sold again at auction for a mere $30,800.
