Bundles have always been an effective way to create pre-orders for a game, but it seems Grid 2 Bac Mono Edition has taken things even further by offering an actual racing car with their latest release.

The Bac Mono is a street-legal race car, with a 2.3L 280hp engine and carbon fiber body that can go from 0 to 60mph in just 2.8s, reaching a top speed of 170mph. On its own the car costs $146,000, which means there is still $44,000 that needs to be accounted for, unless the company is also trying to set a new record for the most expensive video game.

Whoever pre-orders the bundle will also receive a PS3, racing suit (helmet, suit and pair of gloves) and a day at the BAC Mono factory which involves meeting BAC personnel and the chance to personalize your newly acquired racing car.
