In fact, not just any given car – it is a 273kph (170mph) road-legal supercar called BAC Mono. Priced at around RM 572,573 (GBP 125,000), the GRID 2: Mono Edition will apparently made available for only one customer and has been graced by the Guinness World Records with the title of “Most Expensive Video Game Commercially Available – Special Edition”.
Apart from including a BAC Mono which is customized to the customer’s specifications and draped in GRID 2 livery, the bundle also features a full-day experience at BAC’s factory, a set of made-to-measure full race suit in BAC Mono and GRID 2’s branding, GRID 2: Mono Edition helmet by Bell Racing, a PlayStation 3 and the actual game itself with a special BAC Mono-themed artwork.
Last not least, the customer will also receive his or her GRID 2’s BAC Mono in six months rather than 14 months as per existing’s waiting list. Given that the price tag of a standard BAC Mono is already around RM 412, 198 (GBP 90,000), all the customization plus having the car to be delivered to you eight months earlier than usual is not a bad deal at all.

Any fans of Daft Punk here? Well, some of us here in the HQ absolutely love their music too and are really looking forward for the band’s upcoming album called Random Access Memories which is scheduled to be out very soon.
Hence, we found it is rather intriguing that Daft Punk latest teaser video about Random Access Memories is actually an unboxing video (something that we do numerous times here at Lowyat.NET) for the vinyl version of the album. Just take a look at it below, which was just published on their YouTube channel around one hour ago:
It is needless to say that the Daft Punk fans in our team got really super psyched about this video especially towards the end of the video where the first few second of the new album was played out loud. At this rate, we are not surprised if these guys turn up in the office wearing Daft Punk’s helmets and disco suit very soon…that might be a sight to behold, frankly speaking.
