GRID 2 Mono Edition Puts The Pedal to the Metal

Collector’s Editions of games have really upped the ante in the past few years, growing from little nick-knacks and maybe an art book, to including statues, night-vision goggles, remote-control cars…

Or, in the case of the GRID 2 Mono Edition, a car. An. Actual. &#^*ing. Race. Car.

Specifically, the car pictured above: The BAC Mono supercar, capable of 170 MPH. Additionally, you get a complete set of racing gear, and a tour of the BAC factory. Of course, this edition is packaged with the Playstation 3 version of the game, which would matter if it didn’t also include a PS3. Unfortunately, I don’t actually think there’s room in the Mono to store the console on the drive home.

This edition will run you a cool $190,000 or so, although shipping is only free in the UK, and potential US buyers have to contact the manufacturer about rates. All of that would matter if they were making more than one of these, which they aren’t. You can hit up this link to check out the pre-order, but the site claims they are already out-of-stock.

My biggest complaint? Even though the Mono edition has unique box art featuring the supercar, it doesn’t even include a download token to unlock the car in the game.

I genuinely enjoyed the first GRID; it offered a good balance of simulation and arcade style racing, with some great event types like destruction derbies and midnight touge to round out the standard track events. For everyone who isn’t Speed Racer, the regular version of GRID 2 will be released this upcoming Tuesday, May 28. [amazon_link id=”B0093FO2S4″ target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]It will be available on Xbox 360, PC, and Playstation 3.[/amazon_link]
